A Bendigo man has come forward as the winner of last Saturday's $20 million TattsLotto draw.
As one of eight division one winners, the man will share in $2.5 million.
The happy winner shared his excitement on Tuesday morning and said he didn't quite know what to do with himself after discovering the news.
"I don't know how to feel, it's a bit of a shock," he said.
"I scanned my ticket online and saw I had won.
"We couldn't do much to celebrate because we are in lockdown but as soon as we can go out we'll do something fun."
The winning ticket was sold at Golden Square Newsagency, 303 High Street, Golden Square.
The new multi-millionaire said he plans to travel when coronavirus restrictions ease.

A Bendigonian may have joined the million dollar club and not even know it.
A TattsLotto ticket purchased from Golden Square Newsagency for last Saturday's $20 million draw has netted a division one winner.
The Bendigo resident or visitor can claim their share of the $20 million prize, with eight division one winners to each pocket $2.5 million

The mystery winner purchased their ticket at 303 High Street, Golden Square and newsagency owner Bill Roberts said he is very excited his outlet sold a division one winning entry.
"This is the biggest division one prize for us in the 15 years we've owned the newsagency, so we are thrilled," Mr Roberts said.
"It's the second division one win within four months so we are on a bit of a winning streak."
Mr Roberts said the outlet has sold about 30 division one winning entries in the past three decades.
The winning numbers in draw 4129 on February 13, 2021 were 43, 22, 1, 4, 3 and 41, while the supplementary numbers were 24 and 25.
Nationwide, the eight winners were spread across five states, with two each from Victoria, NSW and South Australia and one each from Queensland and WA.
In 2020, the Lott said TattsLotto created 122 millionaires, while 282 division one winners have been recorded this financial year.
