A Mareeba man has thanked his ‘lucky stars’ for looking over him after discovering he had won $1 million dollars in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw.

The Sunshine State resident held the only division one winning entry in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 4323, drawn Wednesday 20 September 2023 and took home $1 million.

The regular player received the shock of a lifetime when he walked into his local newsagency to check his lottery tickets and discovered he had become an overnight millionaire.

“Thank you so much!” he said.

“The stars were shining on me last night.

“I have never won anything like this before.

“We’ve had a few setbacks so this will really help take the stress off.

“I’ll be able to look after the family!

The gleeful man shared that while his newfound fortune is splendid, he won’t be changing as a person anytime soon.

“I’m very happy but I’m still the same person.” he shared.

“My heart will stay true to itself!”

His winning 10-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Nextra Mareeba News, 125 Byrnes Street, Mareeba.

Nextra Mareeba News owner Mary Graham said the team was thrilled to have sold another division one winning entry to one of their regular customers.

“We‘re over the moon that we’ve sold a division one ticket to a regular that is so hardworking and deserving!” she said.

“We recently sold a division one winning entry in April, so it is fantastic to sell another!

“The local Mareeba community will certainly be excited.

“The team and I wish the winner all the best!”
