Tallebudgera man starstruck at work following $2 million Saturday Gold Lotto discovery
A Tallebudgera man had to ‘play it cool’ during his weekend shift after checking his Saturday Gold Lotto ticket at work and discovering his exhilarating $2 million windfall.
The Gold Coast resident held one of the 15 division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4375, drawn Saturday 24 June 2023 and took home a total prize of $2 million.
Speaking with us this morning, the gleeful Queenslander was still trying to come to terms with the fact he’s a newly made multi-millionaire.
“That’s amazing,” he shared.
“I saw the win on The Lott app while I was at work. The first thought that popped into my head was, ‘Is it real?’. I logged on about three or four times to check.
“I had to blur it out of my mind, but it was quite hard to.
“As soon as I came home, I found the ticket and gave it another check.
“That’s when it hit me. It’s awesome!
“I’ve been playing on and off for a while. We just buy tickets now and then.
“It’s hard to process at the moment. I can’t comprehend it.
“Two million dollars will make a significant difference for my family.
“We will definitely go out for some celebratory drinks tonight!”
His winning 36-game QuickPick was purchased at Spar Express Tallebudgera, Shop 5, 7 Trees Road, Tallebudgera.
