A Gladstone fisherman has admitted it’s “strange” to contemplate all the things he’s going to do with $1 million after winning division one in last night’s Gold Lotto draw. 

The Queensland player held one of the two division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 4041, drawn Wednesday 6 January 2021. Each division one entry won $1 million. 

This morning, we called the winner, who could barely utter a word when he heard he’d become an overnight millionaire. 

“Are you serious?” he questioned. 

“Holy sh*t! Holy sh*t! I am shocked. Oh my god! I am not sure what to think right now. 

“It’s insane! “Oh god, I don’t even know what’s going on right now. 

“I am quite overwhelmed. 

“I am a millionaire, isn’t that a strange thought?” When asked how he planned to enjoy his windfall, Central Queensland’s newest millionaire had no hesitation. 

“I am going to get a new boat,” he explained. 

“There will be a few fishing trips too! I love fishing! 

“I might retire earlier than I ever thought too. 

“I am not too sure yet though. I never thought I would be contemplating what to do with $1 million!” 

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his marked 15-game entry at Nextra Valley News, Shop 15, Centro Valley Shopping Centre, Goondoon Street, Gladstone. 

Nextra Valley News owner Rosalie Mcpherson said she was thrilled for her million-dollar winner. 

“Isn’t that wonderful!” she said. 

“I am so, so happy. 

“It’s just the best news I could’ve heard this morning. 

“There must be a rainbow shining over Gladstone! 

“I was only just saying that we’d be the next outlet to sell a division one winning entry in Gladstone and turns out, we did! 

“The entire team are extremely happy for him and hope the win makes a big difference to his life. 

“What better way to start 2021 than as a millionaire! It’s incredible. 

“Hopefully we have some more division one wins soon.”
