Travel and adventure on the cards for hardworking Woolloongabba man after Saturday Gold Lotto win

A hardworking Woolloongabba man is ready to start making his dreams a reality after the revelation he won division one in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
 
The thrilled man discovered his $496,813.01 windfall when he went to buy the newspaper yesterday morning.  He was one of eight division one winners nationally who each took home a prize of almost $500,000 in Saturday Gold Lotto on 8 July 2017.
 
Speaking to a Golden Casket official this morning to confirm his prize, the man explained he saw the win as the opportunity of a lifetime to embark on new travels and adventures after decades of hard work.
 
“When I walked in to get my paper yesterday, one of the workers said someone had won it from there,” he said.
 
“I thought it can’t be me, it won’t be me.  But then I checked my ticket!  It’s just fantastic!
 
“In the past I’ve won some minor prizes, had a bit of a drought, then had another win, but nothing like this.  This was quite unexpected!
 
“It just goes to show, when you’re willing it, it doesn’t happen, but when you casually check your numbers, there it is!”
 
While the man has yet to decide how he will spend his windfall, he confessed he was contemplating some major life changes.
 
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 12-game marked entry from Xpress Foodmart Woolloongabba, Shop 7, Princess Plaza, 14 Annerley Road, Woolloongabba.
 
Xpress Foodmart Woolloongabba owner Jan Jin said the outlet was celebrating selling its first division one winning entry in more than a decade.
 
“We’re all so happy! It’s such great news!” she exclaimed.
 
“Our customers are thrilled it’s gone to one of our regulars and hope one day it will be them!
 
“Congratulations to the winner. We hope they enjoy their prize.”
