A Cairns man is looking forward to basking in his newfound wealth with plans to retire from work, hire a personal trainer and travel the world after winning $20,000 a month for 20 years in Set for Life. 

The winner held the only division one winning entry in Set for Life draw 2310, drawn Thursday 2 December 2021. 

Speaking with us this morning, the happy winner relayed the moment he realised his life had changed forever. 

“I found out late last night while I was in bed,” he shared. 

“I checked the numbers first and then recognised some of them, and so I checked my ticket and bam - there it was! 

“I double-checked it so many times. I couldn’t believe it when I saw I’d won division one. 

“Honestly, I had to keep pinching myself. I thought I was dreaming! 

“I called some family members straight away and told them, and they were so happy for me. 

“It’s a dream come true!” The Far North Queenslander admitted his windfall couldn’t have come at a better time. 

“I’ve won this prize at the best stage of my life,” he explained. 

“It’s all about the lifestyle for me. It means I can relax a bit and focus on what’s important to me. 

“I’ll be able to retire from work if I want to or at least cut back significantly. 

“I will spend more time with my family, and we can go on some amazing holidays all over the world. 

“I am definitely going to get a personal trainer too! Which is something I have always wanted to do. 

“It’s an amazing bonus that’s going to make my family’s life so much better.”
