Rothwell truck driver wakes up to “life-changing” Saturday Gold Lotto news
A Rothwell truck driver is struggling to believe he’ll never have to make another rental or mortgage payment again after this morning waking up a Saturday Gold Lotto millionaire.
The Moreton Bay region resident held one of the four division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4023 on Saturday 8 February 2020. Each division one winning entry takes home a prize of $1,104,264.47.
We contacted the man this morning to break the winning news.
“Holy hell!” he exclaimed.
“Did I win one million dollars?
“Are you kidding me? You must be joking!
“I don’t know what to say.
“I didn’t even think to check my ticket over the weekend.
“I can’t believe this is happening to me right now. I haven’t even been playing Lotto for that long.
“This is unbelievable!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy life as a millionaire, the winner said it would allow him to achieve a life-long dream.
“I’ve been trying really hard to save to buy a house,” he explained.
“So I will certainly be buying myself a house and paying off a few other bills.
“This will really change my life. Not having to worry about rent or a mortgage will be massive.
“I really can’t believe it!”
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his 12-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
