“Oh that’s amazing! I can’t believe it!” he said.
“I only just starting playing Gold Lotto a few weeks ago!
“I was just thinking I’d give it a go. I never thought I’d win anything big!”
While he is yet to decide how he would use his million-dollar windfall, the happy winner declared he planned on having a great family Christmas and replacing his “unreliable” car.
“It’s come at just the right time for Christmas. It’s a great surprise. I’m going to have a great Christmas with my family and have a think about what I’ll do in the New Year,” he said.
“My car at the moment is not the most reliable car so I’ll also probably buy a new one.”
The man is the 19th division one winner from the Gold Coast this calendar year and the third Gold Coast division one winner during the past week.
