Young North Lakes man’s dreams kickstarted by $2.5 million Gold Lotto win
A North Lakes man in his 20s is now happily contemplating life as a multi-millionaire after winning division one in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
The Queenslander held one of the four division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4155, drawn Saturday 15 May 2021. Each division one winning entry takes home a $2.5 million prize.
“It’s a lovely day today!” the winner laughed when speaking to us.
“I checked my ticket on the app after the draw.
"At first, I didn’t believe it. I thought it wasn’t real… but it actually is. I think I got about two hours of sleep as I was just looking at the ticket.
“It’s crazy! I never thought in my life that I would have a win like this.
“I have been playing Lotto for over a year, but I didn’t play for about a month but then I decided to put a ticket on. I just thought I would try it again.
“Others play their favourite numbers, but I just thought I’d grab a QuickPick.”
Now a multi-millionaire, the man in his 20s said he was keeping a level head and planning for his future.
“I can buy a house now,” he shared.
“I like my job, so I’ll keep doing that.
“This win is just a real privilege. I can set myself up for life.”
The winner purchased his 12-game QuickPick online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
