He can always invest his new found fortune. As a long-term plan Investing in stocks is a good idea. He can even invest in some business or maybe buy a house for himself.

The winner narrated his story to an official from The Lott when they called to confirm his win. He told them that his ticket was on the fridge up until his mother heard about a mystery winner on the radio. His mother checked it online and then told him. He was too surprised but according to him his mom was more ecstatic than him.

Though his priority is his mother’s mortgage and his future investments, nonetheless, there is always room for some self-indulgence.

Given his inability to resist the gratification of his whims, he plans on spending some of his winnings on leisure too. He told the lottery official that he plans to treat himself with an overseas trip whenever it’s safe to travel again.

The winning ticket was bought from a gift shop called Murray Bridge Newsagency& Gifts. For all those wondering about the details of the shop, it is Shop 6 situated at 20 Bridge Street, Murray Bridge.
