A South Burnett man has scooped up division one in Saturday night’s Gold Lotto draw pocketing a very nice $441,295.45.
The lucky man was one of nine division one winning entries across Australia and he has been hyped ever since telling a Golden Casket Official that he hadn’t slept a wink since checking his online account and discovering his win.
"Even though I saw it online last night, I still didn't believe it," he said.
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his 12-game QuickPick entry online.
"I was so hyped up but at the same time I kept telling myself not to get too excited in case it was a mistake," he said.
"It's been a tough couple of years, so this is amazing."
"My dad religiously played Saturday Gold Lotto and he passed away just a little while ago, so I think it's his way of looking after us even when he's gone."
"I think he's looking down at me and saying 'good on you son, you've done it'."
The man has plans to look after his family – his main priority then he wants to take the grandkids on a big road trip around Australia, Uluru will be the final destination."
