Gold Coast Dad in shock after surprise Lotto win

The Gold Coast has done it again!

A Robina Dad is now $200,000 richer after scooping the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw on Wednesday.

The Queensland man, who only discovered the surprise win after checking his ticket at a newsagent this afternoon, said he received the shock of his life.


“I’m still trying to work out if I’m being pranked or not!” he laughed. “I’m shaking. I really can’t believe it!”

When asked what he plans on doing with the money, the man said he wants to surprise his family with a dream holiday overseas.

“It’s so funny. I could do with exactly that amount of money this very minute,” he said.

“I’ll be able to pay a few bills and it will really allow me to get ahead.

“I’ve always wanted to take my family to Japan so we will definitely be able to do that now!”

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry at Robina’s newsXpress Easy T on Christine Avenue.
