Million-dollar Monday Gold Lotto win leaves Mount Ommaney man shaking
One Mount Ommaney man’s morning commute to work has been happily disrupted by the revelation he is now a millionaire after winning last night’s Monday Gold Lotto draw.
The surprised winner was the only division one winner across Australia in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3744 on 5 March 2018.
He takes home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.
The man in his 50s was on his way to work when a Golden Casket official made contact to deliver the dream-come-true news.
“Well, you’ve got to be happy with that! I’m shaking at the moment!” he exclaimed.
“I always thought it would be nice to win a million dollars but didn’t think it would ever happen.
“I’m debating whether I still go to work. This has derailed my morning – but in a good way. This is good news.
“I can’t stop shaking. “I play spasmodically, but I’m glad I had an entry in last night!”
While the million-dollar news was sinking in, the family man shared that his family was at the top of his Lotto List.
“I’m going to pay the house off first – do that and then think about it. Nothing hasty,” he added.
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 28-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com.au – Australia’s official lotteries.
The six winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3744 on Monday 5 March 2018 were 6, 18, 13, 24, 11 and 9, while the supplementary numbers were 23 and 33.
Across Australia, there was only one division one winning entry.
The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 294 so far this financial year, including 70 won by Golden Casket customers.
