A hardworking man from Coomera has joked his ex might want him back now after this afternoon’s surprise revelation he won division one in last weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto $30 Million Megadraw. 

The man held one of the 21 division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3803 on 30 December 2017. 

Each takes home a division one prize of $1,428,571.43. The overwhelmed man told a Golden Casket official he had no inkling he held one of the Gold Coast’s two division one winning entries from Saturday’s draw. 

“That’s awesome!” the man exclaimed when his win was confirmed. 

“I had no idea.  I had a day off so I thought I might as well check my ticket. 

“I don’t know what to do!  I don’t want to think about it!  It’s just a bit much at the moment! 

“Does my ex want me back now?” he joked. 

With the win still sinking in, the Gold Coast man confessed he didn’t know exactly how he would use his windfall, but said it would “definitely speed up my retirement plans”. 

In 2017, there were 21 division one winning entries worth more than $17 million sold on the Gold Coast, confirming the region as one of Queensland’s Lotto Hotspots. 

The two division one winning entries for last weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto Megadraw were the biggest division one prizes to land on the Gold Coast during 2017. 

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 24-game QuickPick from Newstyle Chevron Village, Shop 3&4, 64 Thomas Drive, Chevron Island. 

Newstyle Chevron Village staff member Angela Donnelly said the outlet was still on a high from selling its first division one winning entry since it opened five years ago. 

“Hopefully another big win is just around the corner for our customers,” she said. 

“We’ve been so busy with everyone coming in to check their entries – word had definitely spread that we had sold a division one winning ticket. 

“Congratulations to our winner! We wish them all the very best!” 

Throughout Australia, there were 21 entries that won a division one prize of $1.428 million in the $30 Million Megadraw (draw 3803) on Saturday 30 December 2017.
