A Mackay Gold Lotto winner is keeping a tight reign on his excitement until the moment he eyes his prize of almost $1 million in his bank account.
The north Queenslander held one of the six division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4149 on Saturday 24 April 2021. He pockets a division one prize worth $990,996.20.
The winner was oblivious to his good fortune until an official from The Lott made contact with him this morning.
“That sounds alright, hey!” he exclaimed when his winning news was confirmed.
“I’ve been playing for decades, and I’ve won a few minor prizes over the years, but this certainly takes the cake.
“I’ve got the winning ticket here in my hand, and I’ll certainly be holding on tight to it.
“But I won’t get too excited about anything, and I won’t be doing anything to celebrate until I’ve got that loot in my bank account.”
While declaring the division one win would make a big difference to his retirement, the regular player said he would need to take some time before he made any firm plans.
The retired man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 12-game QuickPick entry at Nextra FreeChoice South Mackay, 152 Evans Street, Mackay South.
Nextra FreeChoice South Mackay manager Jason Cardona said the win would create a buzz in the local community.
“Wow, I’m excited for the winner! It’s a great feeling to know there’s been a big win,” he said.
“This is really what being a lottery agent is all about – that division one win that just makes a life-changing difference to a person and their family.
“It’s almost as though we’ve won the prize ourselves!
“Our customers will be over the moon. This is our first division one win since the business was purchased four and a bit years ago.
“To our winner, we hope this will be a life-changing event for you.”
