“We’re off to Disneyland!” Gold Coast dad plans dream family holiday after massive win

A Gold Coast Dad is planning to treat his family to their dream holiday after this morning discovering he had won division one in this week’s The Pools draw.

The man, from Mudgeeraba, was the only person to take out the win, scoring the entire division one prize of $1,488,132.30

Amazingly, it’s the fourth division one win to land on the Gold Coast during the past four weeks!


The Gold Coaster was hard at work this morning oblivious to his win when a Golden Casket spokesperson delivered the dream-come-true news.

“Wow! That’s just amazing!” he exclaimed.

“I’m nearly in tears. You’ve just made my year.

“It’s the best Easter present you could ever ask for!

“It’ll take me a while to process it I’d say.”

Despite being a bit shocked by the news, the regular player knew exactly what he wanted to do with his windfall.

“Be mortgage free and go on a nice holiday!” he declared.

“We’ll take the kids to Disneyland!”

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 36-game QuickPick from Mudgeeraba Newsagency at Mudgeeraba Markets.
