“I just couldn’t believe it!” Gold Lotto win leaves young Gold Coast man beaming

A Gold Coast man will be quietly beaming at work today after discovering he’s won division one in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw!

The man, aged in his 30s, was one of nine division one winning entries across Australia who each took home a whopping $444,985.88.

When speaking with a Golden Casket official this morning, the man was already hard at work, but revelling in his life-changing win.

“Wow! It still doesn’t feel real. It hasn’t sunk in yet,” he said.

“It’s my little ritual every Saturday to head up to the shop and get my ticket. Every Sunday morning about 9am I scan my ticket and complain I haven’t won.  I didn’t complain this Sunday!

“I just couldn’t believe it. I’ve waited all my life for this!”

With a Gold Lotto windfall about to drop into his bank account, the Merrimac resident shared a few of his plans.

“It’ll pay off the mortgage and give us a little bit of money in the bank. We’ll be comfortable for the rest of our lives,” he said.

“It’s come at a really good time in our lives.”

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry at Nextra Nerang Mall.
