Gold Coast Man Wins $4 Million Lotto Prize

A $4 million winning Saturday Gold Lotto ticket has been claimed after a few days when no-one came forward for the prize. The winning ticket was announced as having been sold to someone at the Surf News Outlet in the Marina Mirage shopping center in Main Beach, Queensland.

A Gold Coast man in his fifties has come forward to claim the prize after having heard the news report of where the winning ticket was sold. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, claimed the prize on Tuesday, October 25, after the ticket was drawn on the Saturday.

“I usually play every single week, but I don’t usually check my tickets; I save four, sometimes five tickets and then just put them in my wallet and leave them and maybe six weeks later I check my numbers,” the winner said to officials from the Golden Casket Lotto service.

“So this ticket probably would have sat in my wallet for a couple of weeks before I checked it! Luckily this morning I saw on the news that the weekend’s winning ticket was sold at Surf News Marina Mirage – so I thought I better hurry up and check it!”

The winner explained how he went into work and checked his ticket on the computer. He checked over and over again and still not believing his luck, he borrowed his boss’s phone to call the lotto officials directly.

Only a single winning ticket was sold across Australia for the first division prize from Draw #3679 for Saturday’s Gold Lotto draw, making this winner, the only winner and netting him the total prize of $4,114,177.70. It is not common that only one winning ticket is sold for a draw and the last time this happened was on March 12, 2016.
