Friday 31 May, 2013 - A Townsville man says he’ll never forget the phone call he received from Golden Casket informing him he was Queensland’s newest millionaire after winning division one and other divisional prizes totalling $1,017,958.60 in Wednesday Gold Lotto!
The winner was completely unaware for two days that he was $1 million richer until Golden Casket was able to contact him this afternoon.
“You’re kidding me! You don’t know what this means for me,” the shocked winner said.
“I only ever check my tickets once a week so if you hadn’t have got me on the phone, I wouldn’t have known until next Tuesday!
“I’ve been playing those numbers for more than 20 years. They’re made up of family birthdays and anniversaries so they’re special to me."
The excited winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, said he’s going to surprise his wife with the news and already knows exactly what he’ll do with the money.
“Oh mate this means I can pay the bank off and own my home! I’ll have enough left over to share the joy with my family.
“I won’t ever forget this phone call!”
The registered winning division one ticket in Wednesday Gold Lotto was purchased at News Plus, Shop 2 in Aitkenvale Plaza, 278 Ross River Road, Aitkenvale.
The winning numbers in Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3324 on 29 May 2013 were 30, 23, 22, 40, 5 and 12 with the supplementary numbers 32 and 28.
