Gobsmacked and amazed: Ipswich man answers million-dollar Gold Lotto phone call
An Ipswich man is calling it a day at work after picking up the phone this morning to the news he’s woken up a Monday Gold Lotto millionaire.
The Queenslander held the only division one winning entry nationally in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3968, drawn Monday 27 April 2020, and takes home a division one prize of $1 million.
This morning we broke the life-changing news to the man, who had just settled in for a day of work.
“Oh my god. Are you serious?” he began to question.
“Is that one million dollars?
“Oh my god. Thank you so much.
“This means a lot to me. Wow! This means so much.
“I’m gobsmacked. This is unbelievable. You’ve changed my life in an incredible way.
“I was definitely not expecting this news when I picked up the phone this morning.
“Wow. I am in disbelief.
“I don’t think I’m going to get through the working day, I’m going to have to call it!”
Contemplating life as a millionaire, the Ipswich player said he’d be spending the day searching for a holiday home.
“Gosh, I am just trying to comprehend everything at the moment,” he laughed.
“I am going to be debt free!
“I will definitely keep working. I will buy myself a beautiful new car and a holiday home as well!”
