Morningside man to ‘do everything’ with $1 million Saturday Gold Lotto win!
A Morningside man is excited to ‘do everything’ after becoming a millionaire from winning division one in Saturday’s Gold Lotto draw.
The Brisbane resident held one of the eight division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3967 on Saturday 27 July 2019, with each entry taking home a division one prize of $1 million.
When we called the winner this morning, he was oblivious to his good fortune and dropped the phone upon hearing he was now a millionaire.
“Holy sh**! I am sorry I just dropped my phone,” he laughed.
“Oh my god! I am absolutely stunned!
“I hadn’t checked to see if I won, I usually just wait for the email, so I had no idea.
“Oh my godfather, I am ecstatic.
“I think I am going to have to take a sickie. I don’t think I will be able to concentrate at work.”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his prize, the Brisbane man said although the win had come as a surprise, he had plenty of ideas.
“I am going to pay off my house and I will definitely help my family,” he explained.
“Then we would like to go on an overseas holiday to Asia.
“I don’t really know though. I guess I can do everything now I am a millionaire!”
The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 12-game entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
