Charters Towers man 'dancing inside' after $1 million surprise!

A retiree from Charters Towers, a northern Queensland town inland from Townsville, confessed he was ‘dancing inside’ when he discovered he’d become a millionaire in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw!

Luckily, jumping on the computer in the morning and checking the previous night’s results was part of the winning man’s routine.

The winner said he managed to keep composed, at least on the outside, when this time he looked up the draw results and saw his long-held numbers prompting him to contact Golden Casket.

“I’m sorry my phone number was dodgy love, I guess I wasn’t expecting to win anything or get this phone call!” he laughed.

“It was fantastic! It was sort of a bit unbelievable! I’ll admit I checked the numbers over a few times.

“I kept it together but I was dancing inside!”

The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, doesn’t intend to stay a millionaire for long with plans to buy a house and a new car.

“Holy moly! That’s amazing news – we’re all tickled pink!” Mrs Jones exclaimed.

“We’ve sold division one before but everyone’s been saying we were due for another one, so it’s great it’s now our turn.

“I hope the luck is here to stay in Charters Towers and it won’t be too long between division one drinks!”
