A Kelvin Grove man is almost a million dollars richer after marking his Gold Lotto entry with numbers that came to him in a dream. 

The Queenslander held one of the six division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4151, drawn Saturday 1 May 2021. He scores a division one prize of $974,297.53. 

In addition to his division one win, the Brisbane man’s marked System 7 entry also scored division three 6 times, bolstering his total prize to $979,675.63. 

“I’ve always thought it would be nice to have a boat in my driveway,” he laughed when we confirmed his prize.

“It’s weird. I’ve always dabbled in Gold Lotto and just get a weekly entry. 

“A few years ago, I had a dream one night, and all these numbers popped into my head. I woke up in the middle of the night and I jotted them down. 

“It was midnight, but I put them into my phone and started using them on my Gold Lotto entry. 

“Then yesterday morning, I checked my ticket. I thought, ‘this isn’t right’, so I waited 15 minutes and then checked it again. I wasn’t sure if I was awake or not! 

“I checked my ticket again and again all day yesterday.  It all feels like a dream.”
