A Nambour man has had an unforgettable start to his week, declaring he was blown away when he checked his Saturday Gold Lotto ticket to discover he was one of the weekend’s division one winners. 

The Sunshine Coast resident held one of the 10 division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4213, drawn Saturday 4 December 2021. Each division one winning entry took home $587,281.03. 

Confirming his win with us this morning, the Queenslander explained he’d just made the discovery moments before answering the call. 

“I just checked my ticket. I can’t believe it,” he managed eventually. 

“Wow! Thank you. That is truly amazing. 

“I am blown away. Blown away. 

“I just checked it on the app and I had to put my glasses on because I thought I was seeing things. 

“And a moment later, you called. 

“It’s crazy! This is a dream. It’s amazing.” 

“I’ll pay my mortgage off, for sure,” he declared. 

“And then I will be able to plan for what’s next. It will be amazing!” 

His winning marked 12-game marked entry was purchased at Nextra Nambour, Shop 1, Nambour Plaza, Ann Street, Nambour.  

Nextra Nambour owner Rod Hurst said he was thrilled to know the win had gone to a local. 

“We’ve sold quite a few division one winning entries over the years,” he explained. 

“We love it when these prizes go to local customers, it’s great news for us and for the town. 

“Congratulations to our latest winner!”
