A Sydney dad has won a whopping $96 million, making him the second biggest individual lottery winner in Australian history.

The Chatswood man received the life-changing news at work using the word “stunned” to describe how he was feeling after the win.

“Jesus Christ! I’m at work at the moment so I wasn’t expecting this phone call,” he said.

“I’m shaking. I’m just waiting for someone to tell me I’m being punk’d!”

When asked what he would do with the money, he said he would ensure his children are set up for the future. He also plans to travel around the world.

“I know a number of people who are going to be extremely happy when I tell them I have won.

“I can’t wait to call my wife and tell her I have won. I don’t think she’ll believe me. I’m a bit of a prankster so she’ll probably think I’m pulling a fast one.”


In terms of his job, he said it was unlikely he would finish the work day.

“I’m pretty sure I’ll quit. My endless lunch-break starts now!”

Okay, hands up if you’re jealous…
