A North Brisbane Gold Lotto winner has explained he’d been waiting to win the lottery after having a vivid dream about winning that was so real he was convinced it would soon become a reality. 

The south-east Queenslander held one of the 10 division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4201, drawn Saturday 23 October 2021.

Each division one winning entry scored $621,262.72. 

Confirming his win with us earlier today, the winning dad explained the news was quite literally a dream come true. 

“That’s fantastic!” he laughed. 

“Thank you so much. 

“I checked my ticket on Sunday morning. I thought there was an error or some sort! 

“I couldn’t believe it to begin with, but then the news started sinking in. 

“I had a premonition a few months ago about winning the lottery, a very vivid dream of this happening. 

“It was odd, very surreal, but the dream was so real, and I was so convinced it would happen. 

“And now it has!” With his division one win hitting his bank account in no time, the Queenslander said he was looking forward to making things a little easier. 

“We’re going to pay off the mortgage and help the kids out,” he declared. 

“It will be such a nice boost and really take the pressure off. 

“We are very grateful and so excited!”
