The man said it was too soon to decide what he and his family will do with the pile of cash – and he still had to go to work.
“It hasn’t sunk in,” he said. “It doesn’t feel real.”
He said he had no inkling of the life-changing win as he was doing the school drop-off.
“We can’t comprehend the win yet, so it’s hard to know what we will do,” he added.
“There’s no doubt that it will go to something great.
“There won’t be much celebrating today because I’m still going to work.
“It will be hard to concentrate.”
The couple, from Melbourne, Australia, scooped the winning ticket in Oz Lotto draw 1516 on Tuesday and took home a huge prize of AU$20million (£11 million).
They bought the ticket at Cairnlea News and Lotto.
Shop owner Kevin Thai said the store has proved lucky for many.
But he had been waiting nearly two years for the next winner.
“Our entire team is super excited and over-the-moon to have sold a division one winning entry,” he said.
“I was actually asleep when we were notified about the news, and it woke me up instantly.
“It has been almost two years since we sold a division one-winning ticket and we have been waiting patiently for the next winner ever since.
“I believe we’ve had over 10 or more division one winners and a few syndicates since the store opened over 12 years ago.
“It’s such an amazing feeling. This is what we do every day and to have a winner who is taking home such a huge prize, is indescribable.
“A massive congratulations to the division one winner and their family. We couldn’t be happier for them.”
The winning numbers in Oz Lotto draw 1516 were 28, 31, 47, 26, 33, 44 and 4, and the supplementary numbers were 11, 9 and 20.
