Gladstone Park retiree to spend the weekend planning how he’ll enjoy his $1 million Wednesday Lotto win
A Gladstone Park man says his $1 million division one win couldn’t have come at a better time after recently kicking off his retirement.
The Melbourne resident held one of the three division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4049, drawn Wednesday 3 February 2021. Each entry takes home a division one prize worth $1 million.
Sharing his disbelief with us this morning, the man said he’d just checked his ticket online.
“It feels really good,” he laughed.
“When I checked my ticket on the app this morning the loveliest surprise popped up.
“I am still staring at my phone screen. I just can’t believe it.
“I’m still in shock. I honestly cannot believe it.
“This is amazing! I have been playing for such a long time so to finally have a big win, it’s incredible!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his life-changing prize, the loving father said he was looking forward to helping his family.
“The timing really couldn’t have been better,” he said.
“I have just recently retired so I have all the time in the world to really enjoy it.
“And I will be able to help out my children, they will certainly benefit.
The winning entry was sold at Gladstone Park Lotto & Service Centre, Shop 165, Gladstone Park Shopping Centre, 8-34 Gladstone Park Drive, Gladstone Park.
