A Queensland man, who tragically lost his home in the aggressive bushfires that have been tearing through Australia, has won around $1,000,000 in the lotto.
When being contacted by a Lotto spokesperson, the man explained why he was so grateful for his newfound winnings.
"My family just lost their home in the bushfires in northern New South Wales and it wasn’t insured, so thank you very much."
"I can’t wait to go home and give my wife a big kiss and a cuddle," he added, before disclosing that he’d used his wife’s "special numbers".
The Lotto spokesperson also relayed the extent of his property's damage.
"They were going through the site looking for any special family mementoes that they could salvage, but all they could find was some teacups."
"This really has come at the most incredible time,"
