Hardworking Cairns man to call it a day at work after $1 million Gold Lotto win

A hardworking Cairns man has decided to call it a day at work after winning $1 million in last night’s Wednesday Gold Lotto draw.
 
Thanks to his 12-game QuickPick, the man was the only division one winner across Australia in Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3645.
 
Speaking to a Golden Casket official this morning, the winner admitted he first didn’t believe his win was true.
 
“That’s really good!  It’s well and truly come at absolutely the right time,” he said.
 
“I’ve only got another year or so to go until retirement and I think this has made up my mind for me!
 
“I just had a look at the results online a quarter of an hour ago.  I’ve been back on about five times to confirm it’s right.  I wasn’t sure. 
 
“I check my lotto online each morning and usually it says nothing to me, but this time it was different!  I really didn’t believe it, but I believe it now!”
 
Apart from stopping work, the winner said he would also use his windfall to buy his first home, buy a new car and help his family.
 
The regular player, who wishes to remain anonymous, bought his winning entry at Raintrees Newsagency, Shop 24, Raintrees Shopping Centre, 1 Koch Street, Cairns.
 
Raintrees Newsagency owner Sharryn Stokes said the store was celebrating selling another division one winning entry.
 
“Congratulations to the winner!  It’s very exciting that one of our customers has won!” she said.
 
“Everyone tells us we’re a lucky shop and it looks like it’s come to fruition!
 
“The last time we sold a division one winning ticket was just over two years ago in June 2014 and we sold actually sold two in one week. 
 
“Back then, we sold a winning ticket in the Wednesday Gold Lotto and then one later that week for the Saturday Gold Lotto.  With this week’s $21 million Superdraw, perhaps we’ll do the same thing again this weekend!”
 
The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3645 on Wednesday 22 March 2017 were 6, 11, 23, 22, 35, 18, with the supplementary numbers 37 and 27.
 
Across Australia, it was the only division one winning entry in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3645, which offers a guaranteed $1 million division one prize for up to four winners in every draw.
 
The Lott’s division one winning entry tally has now reached 288 so far this financial year, including 70 won by Golden Casket customers.
