Gold Coast man wins $2 million and will buy a home for his wife

Monday 22 October, 2012 - A retired man from the Gold Coast was awe-struck at the news he had won $2 million in Saturday Gold Lotto over the weekend!

When speaking with Golden Casket today, the regular Gold Lotto player said he and his wife were still in disbelief.

“It’s just been out of sight! We’re full of joy,” he said.

“I’ve been playing Gold Lotto for around 30 years, with the same numbers every week. This is great news for us.”

The winner said he would think carefully about how to use the windfall, but there’s one thing on the very top of his wish-list.

“I’ll be buying a home for my wife as we’ve been renting for some time. I want to buy her the home of her dreams,” he smiled.

The winning entry won the man a total prize of $2,003,471.43 and was purchased from Paradise Point News, Shop 1 at 11 Grice Avenue in Paradise Point.
