A Wollongong retiree is a multi-millionaire following a huge Oz Lotto win this week.
The man won $7.5 million in the draw on Tuesday - and it could have been more had three other people not had the same winning numbers.
"You always think 'I'd love to win the lottery' and now I have and it's a great feeling," he said.
"I've won small prizes over the years but to win a big one is incredible and I'm glad I've been able to share it with three others.
"I checked my ticket this morning, I was sitting down at home and I saw I had a win. I didn't pay too much attention because I assumed it would be a small one but when I saw $7.5 million, I couldn't believe it."
He's planning to use some of the money to help out his kids, and then update his caravan and head on a tour around the country.
