A Morayfield man says he’s still numb more than 24 hours after checking his Saturday Gold Lotto ticket while half asleep and learning his life had changed in the best way possible. 

The Queensland player held one of the seven division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4109, drawn Saturday 5 December 2020. Each entry takes home a division one prize of $906,269.30. 

Confirming his win with us this morning, the winning man explained he was still reeling from yesterday’s revelation. 

“Thank you very much!” he laughed. 

“I’m numb and I don’t know what to do. 

“I haven’t really celebrated just yet because I’ve been waiting for the news to be confirmed. 

“I didn’t want to get ahead of myself. 

“I always check my ticket on a Sunday morning. 

“I was half asleep and checked it, and I had to put my glasses on and read it properly because I thought I was seeing things. 

“I just about fell over. 

“It was very very exciting! I’m completely overwhelmed.” 

When asked how he planned to enjoy his division one windfall, the regular player explained he’d suddenly felt a weight lift from his shoulders. 

“This changes things significantly,” he explained. 

“It really takes a lot of stress off. I don’t have to worry about the little things now. 

“I’ll definitely start to slow down. I might even retire a little earlier now!” 

The life-changing ticket was purchased at Nextra Morayfield Village News, Shop 5, Morayfield Shopping Centre, 171 Morayfield Road, Morayfield. 

Nextra Morayfield Village News owner Ken Allan said it was a great feeling to be part of someone’s life-changing win. 

“We’re so excited for our winner,” he said. 

“We were so pumped when we realised we’d sold the winning ticket. 

“Our regular customers are all so happy to hear that this prize has gone to a local. 

“Congratulations to him! We hope that after the year that has been 2020 they can really enjoy their prize!”
