Gold Coast man counting cars in his sleep following $2.6 million Saturday Gold Lotto win
A Gold Coast man admits he’s never slept better since discovering he won more than $2.6 million in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw, instead happily dreaming about which car will soon adorn his driveway.
The Queenslander held one of the two division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto, draw 4381, drawn Saturday 15 July 2023 and pocketed $2,666,110.76.
“This is absolutely mind-blowing!” the winning man cheered when we called to confirm his windfall.
“I’m struggling to comprehend it in all honesty. It just feels surreal.
“Until I see the prize land in my bank account, I don’t think my brain will fully accept that this has happened.
“I’ve manifested this though, I swear!
“For the past 18 months I’ve been saying it out loud for the universe, ‘I will win the lottery’.
“Well, it goes to show it can work!”
When asked what he planned to do with his life-changing prize, the elated man confessed he was struggling to decide which car he’d be using to drive to and from work in future.
“I’m not going to retire yet, but I will cut back on my work,” he said.
“Two or three days a week sounds perfect, but the main problem I have is I can’t make a decision on which car I want to buy to get me there!
“I’m sure it’ll come to me. It’s what I think about as I doze off at night. You could say it’s a dream come true!”
The man’s winning 18-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Arundel Plaza News, Shop 9A Arundel Plaza Shopping Centre, 230-232 Napper Road, Arundel.
The Arundel Plaza News team said they were over the moon for their winning customer and wished them all the best for the future.
