Magnanimous Marsden dad set to share $1 million Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto win amongst his children
A generous Marsden father has revealed his shock $1 million Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto win will be split between his children, preferring to give them a leg up in life than keep the prize for himself.
The Logan player was one of the four division one winners in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 4191, drawn Wednesday 15 June 2022. Each division one winner took home $1 million.
Confirming his win with us, the winning man said his new millionaire status had taken a little getting used to.
“I was stoked at first. I couldn’t believe it,” he exclaimed.
“Then I started to worry about what I’d do with it. So I decided immediately I’d just give it all to my children!
“They didn’t take me seriously when I told them. Once it sank in I wasn’t joking, they were over the moon.
“I don’t need it. I’ve lived a great life. To be able to give my children a leg up, make their lives a little bit easier, and give them this incredible gift is fantastic.
“I know they’ll spend it wisely and I’m so happy to have won!
“It’s like it was meant to be.
“Usually, I’ll play the same numbers I always have, but I decided to go with a QuickPick for this particular draw.”
