Gold Coast man wins AUS$800k lotto prize

ORMEAU – A man from Ormeau in the north of the Gold Coast has had the shock of a lifetime after he won an AUS$800,000 Gold Lotto jackpot on Saturday night.

According to Lotto sources, the lucky winner, who preferred to remain anonymous bought his ticket in the same store where a AUS$15million Powerball winning ticket was purchased in April.

When asked about how he felt after finding out he had won such a huge prize, the man said, “I checked the numbers and just felt numb. I probably got about 10 minutes sleep, my mind was racing.”

The winning numbers in Saturday’s Gold Lotto draw were 5, 11, 13, 16, 25 and 29.
