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. 

“It’s fantastic!” 

The winning entry was sold at Gladstone Park Lotto & Service Centre, Shop 165, Gladstone Park Shopping Centre, 8-34 Gladstone Park Drive, Gladstone Park.
