Stanthorpe dad ready to share $1 million Monday Gold Lotto win with his family!
A Stanthorpe dad erupted into celebration this morning after being told he is now a millionaire from winning division one in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw.
The man was one of four division one winners nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3692 on Monday 4 September 2017, including two from Queensland, one from South Australia and one from Western Australia.
In addition to winning division one, the man’s System entry also won division three 30 times and division four 150 times, bolstering his windfall to $1,030,795.00.
The hardworking family man had no idea about his good fortune and only learnt the winning news when a Golden Casket official made contact with him first thing this morning.
“One million dollars! Woohoo! That’s incredible!” the happy man exclaimed. “I’ve been waiting for a call like this all my life! It’s just too good! “I’m speechless! I don’t know what to say! It’s just amazing.”
Despite the winning bolt from the blue, the man knew exactly what he would do with his new millionaire status.
“I really want to help my kids and set them up for the future! They’re my number one priority. Seeing them happy will make me happy!”
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning System entry from Stanthorpe Newsagency, 16 Maryland Street, Stanthorpe.
Stanthorpe Newsagency owner Michael Bentley said the outlet was celebrating selling its first division one winning entry. “It’s a great win for the town and about time – it’s our first division one. It’s good to think that one of our customers is now a millionaire,” he said. “We wish the winner all the very best with their windfall and hope another one of our customers becomes a division one winner soon!”
The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3692 on Monday 4 September 2017 were 13, 8, 16, 24, 37 and 7, while the supplementary numbers were 5 and 20.
Across Australia there were four division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3692, including two from Queensland, one from South Australia and one from Western Australia.
