LISMORE MAN INSTANT MILLIONAIRE AFTER LOTTO WIN

A Northern Rivers man plans to retire early, after becoming a millionaire in last week’s Lotto.

After playing the same numbers for 40-years, consistency paid off for the Lismore man – his numbers appearing in the Wednesday night draw.

His ticket was the only division one winning entry in the country, earning him a $1 million windfall.

The man purchased the ticket from the Goonellabah Newsagency.
