Morayfield man heads into the weekend a millionaire
The search has officially been called off for Morayfield’s newest millionaire, with a local man coming forward today to claim his million-dollar Wednesday Gold Lotto prize.
The Queensland entry was the only division one winning entry nationally in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3917, on Wednesday 30 October 2019, and takes home a division one prize $1,000,000.
Confirming his win with us, the man explained he’d just checked his ticket at the newsagency.
“Thank you very much,” he laughed.
“This quite a pleasant surprise. It’s certainly going to take a while for this news to sink in.
“I’ve been marking my entries with these number for around a decade.
“I have no idea why I chose those numbers all those years ago but I am so pleased they’ve finally been drawn.
“I never thought this would actually happen to me!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his million-dollar fortune, the modest man revealed he wouldn’t be making any drastic changes and would be back at work early Monday morning.
“I’ll probably buy a new home to begin with,” he said.
“I will definitely keep working. I couldn’t imagine not working. I love my job.
“I will certainly be celebrating this weekend!”
The million-dollar winning Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto ticket was purchased at Nextra Morayfield Plaza News, Shop 28, Morayfield Shopping Centre, 171 Morayfield Road, Morayfield.
