- Multimillionaire who won five first division Lotto prizes has been denied bail
- Carlo Massetti, 45, has been charged with domestic violence offences
- Massetti’s alleged offences took place in the weeks after $2.5m Lotton win
- He won $1 million on May 7 and five days later he tallied another $1.457 million
An undertaker and funeral director who won Lotto five times proved money can’t buy happiness after allegedly beating a woman just days after hitting the jackpot.
Carlo Massetti, 45, won a whopping $2.5 million from two Lotto tickets in May.
He took out the $1 million division-one prize on May 7 and just five days later claimed another $1.457 million.
He won an additional $4000 in a Powerball draw but his first win came in 2012 at which point he retired from his job in Bondi, in New South Wales’ eastern suburbs.
But his lucky streak may be over.

Mr Massetti was denied bail when he appeared in Waverley Local Court in Sydney’s eastern suburbs this week, meaning he will spend Christmas behind bars.
He has been charged with three counts of common assault, three counts of contravening an ADVO, stalking and an assault causing actual bodily harm linked to domestic violence.
Mr Massetti allegedly committed these offences just days after his latest jackpot win, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Court documents allege the offences occurred on June 14 and Massetti made ‘domestic violence related calls’ between 7.30 and 9.30pm.
Massetti told the Daily Telegraph he had recently divorced.
‘And currently I’m in a complicated relationship. I’m not sure where that’s going,’ he said in June.

Massetti, who pleaded not guilty to six of the offences, is expected to appear at Waverley Local Court on January 15.
The 46-year-old, who has not worked since his first Lotto win in 2012, has won four division one prizes in total.
Massetti donated $50,000 to the cardiac services at St Vincent’s Hospital in June this year after his father and two of his grandparents suffered heart attacks.
