Nerang man “dead set over the moon” with million-dollar Wednesday Gold Lotto discovery
A Nerang man has declared he “literally couldn’t be happier” after discovering the Wednesday Gold Lotto entry he bought last night at the last minute had made him a millionaire.
The Gold Coast player held the only division one winning entry nationally in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3961 on Wednesday 1 April 2020 and takes home a prize of $1 million.
Confirming his life-changing win with our team this afternoon, the tired but thrilled man admitted he was struggling to concentrate at work today after a sleepless night.
“I’m looking at my online account at the moment and it’s bringing a big smile to my face,” he laughed.
“I literally couldn’t be happier!
“Thank you. It’s amazing! It’s absolutely surreal.
“I saw it last night, and my wife and daughter and I kept checking it over and over. We just could not believe it.
“It still hasn’t sunk in. I am dead set over the moon!
“I only bought the ticket last night, just before the draw.
“I had to keep checking it. It was just insane.
“I love playing Lotto. Like everyone, you always hope that one day your luck will come in and it has. I just can’t believe it.”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his million-dollar windfall, the man said his plans were all about to fall into place.
“Strangely enough, my wife and I have been looking at a new home, so the timing is perfect,” he said.
“We had parked that plan for a little while but now we will certainly put it back in place.
“We will certainly be going on a holiday when everything settles down!
“It is amazing. Completely life changing!”
