A Gladstone electrician has had an electrifying start to his week, scoring a $2.5 million Gold Lotto win on the weekend. 

The Central Queenslander held one of the eight division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4139, drawn Saturday 20 March 2021. They take home a division one prize of $2,500,000. 

Sharing his excitement with us this morning, the ecstatic tradie was still coming to terms with the news. 

“I just got goosebumps all over again when you confirmed that prize,” he laughed. 

“Multi-millionaire sounds weird! I still can’t believe it.

“I got an email yesterday and initially I thought it was scam. 

“After that, for the rest of the day, I became completely useless. 

“I turned into a three-year-old. I was wandering around aimlessling, muttering half sentences, bumping into things.  

“I got sick of wandering around in circles, and so went to the car and drove around town in circles. 

“I will play sporadically and usually play Oz Lotto and Powerball. I don’t think I’m a lucky person. I used to think if I didn’t have bad luck, I wouldn’t have any luck at all. Looks like that’s about to change." 

The new Queensland multi-millionaire shared he had been on the hunt for a new home, but those plans may now be upgraded. 

“Everything I’ve done up until now can be thrown out the window. I’ve got a few more options now with this prize,” he said. 

“With the rest, I’ll go see a financial advisor and make sure it works for me in the future.”

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his life-changing entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
