A Noosa man plans to retire and sail off into the sunset on a brand new boat after winning $1.8 million in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.

The Sunshine Coast resident held one of the 11 division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4257 on Saturday 7 May 2022. Each division one winning entry scored $1,818,181.82.

Speaking with our team, the winning man said he couldn’t wait to use the prize to relax and begin the next stage of his life.

“You beauty!” he proclaimed.

“This is just beautiful.

“I’ve got a fair idea of how my life is going to go now. I’ll do a bit of work on my house and fix up a few things first.

“But then I’ll retire, buy myself a boat and spend the next 10 to 15 years relaxing and enjoying life.

“This is just amazing.

“You dream of things like this happening but never expect them to. It’s going to completely change my life.”

The Noosa man purchased his winning 50-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
