A Gold Coast man is preparing for a bright future after bagging more than $1 million in a recent Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw.

The Queensland resident held one of the two division one winning entries across the nation in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 4255, drawn Wednesday 25 January 2023 and took home $1 million.

“It’s been a whirlwind few days mate!” the excited winner exclaimed when confirming his win with us.

“I have to keep pinching myself to make sure it’s real. My wife still doesn’t believe me!

“I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty emotional about it all at the moment.

“This win means we’ll be mortgage free, it means we’ll be able to set up our family for the future, and it means we can live the life we’ve always dreamed of.

“You always hope to win but never expect it.

“Now that it’s happened, I don’t know how to feel.

“Thank you so much mate! This has changed my life.”

The winning man purchased his 50-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
