A man who scooped £680,000 in an Australian lottery nearly missed out on the prize after thinking the win was a hoax.
The lucky winner, from Darwin, almost didn’t collect the money after being left in total disbelief when he saw all six of his numbers on the lottery app.
“Usually, I get an email straight after the draw that tells me how close I am to winning division one,” the winner told Daily Mail Australia.
“But this time, I didn’t, so when I woke up on Sunday morning, I logged into The Lott app and I saw I had all six numbers.
“I thought ‘well, that’s strange’ and then I saw the prize amount, and I thought it must be some kind of hoax.”
He was one of five winning entries in the TattsLotto draw with each person taking home £680,000 ($1,304,946.92).
