A Gosford man has confessed he’s ready to live life a little differently after bagging an incredible $680,000 prize in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw.

The Central Coast man held one of the eight division one winning entries in Saturday Lotto draw 4443 on Saturday 17 February 2024. Each division one winning entry scored $683,814.78.

“This is amazing!” the winning man gasped when an official from The Lott called to confirm his windfall.

“Monday mornings don’t get much better than this I can assure you.

“I’ve kept these numbers going for years. I just always had a feeling these were my numbers, and I shouldn’t stray from them.

“I’m glad I went with my gut now!

“It’s been a tough few years for me so this is an incredible breath of fresh air.

“I’ll pay off the mortgage, fix up a few bills and then I might treat myself to a new car.

“One thing is for sure; I’ll be living life more freely and with less stress from here on out.

“Thank you so much. This is life changing.”

His winning marked 10-game system 7 entry was purchased at Gosford Lotto News Agency & Convenience Store, 152 Mann Street, Gosford.
