“It won’t change who I am!”: Rothwell man’s $1.3 million Saturday Gold Lotto win 40 years in the making
A Rothwell man says he’s ready to give to those who truly need it after winning more than $1.3 million in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
The Queenslander held one of four division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4279, drawn Saturday 23 July 2022, and takes home a total prize of $1,365,127.92.
Speaking with us this morning, the winning man shared the incredible win was life-changing.
“I’m extremely grateful for the win because it really means I can donate more to the many charities that I’ve supported over the years,” he shared.
“It will certainly change my life, but I hope it changes many other people’s lives too.
“I’d been playing the same numbers for 25 years and nothing had worked, so I recently changed it up.
“I tell you what, I’m glad I did now!
“I’ll donate it, save it, and invest it. I think those are the smart things to do.
“My life ambition now is to win it again! Wouldn’t that be something?
“Thank you so much. This is an incredible feeling.”
