The retiree got the call confirming his victory this morning and told Gold Casket officials about the heart-pounding moment he discovered his fortune.
“Get me off the floor please!” he laughed.
“I’m still so shocked!
“My head has been spinning.
“On Saturday night after the draw I thought I’d have a quick look at the results online.
“I started ticking off the numbers one by one and after ticking off five, I was too scared to look at the sixth number.
“But when I finally did, I saw that I did have the sixth number! I just stared to the heavens above!
“It’s just so good to hear that it’s all official. I feel like I have been in a dream!”
The Queensland player shared he’d spent the rest of his weekend planning exactly how he’d enjoy his windfall.
“This will dramatically change my life,” he declared.
“We are going to buy a new home and help out our children.
“I can’t even explain the feeling, I just feel numb.
“This has been the greatest news I’ve received in my life!”
The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry at Lotto Express Kiosk The Strand Coolangatta.
Store owner Charlie Sun said he was thrilled the outlet had sold its first division one winning entry.
“We are so happy and excited for the winner,” he said.
“We are also so glad to see our newest store sell a life-changing prize!
“We wish our winner all the very best and hope they really enjoy their prize.”
