“At first, we thought I’d won $30,000. Then we double-checked the ticket and I remember thinking, ‘oh my goodness, we’ve won $30 million!’.
“First thing on our list is buying our first home. Thank you so much! I feel like I need to pinch myself again to make sure it’s real.”

A Hamilton man couldn’t believe his eyes when he checked his Saturday Gold Lotto ticket and discovered his division one prize of more than $580,000.
“You always think, ‘I wonder what it would be like to win’, but you never actually expect it to happen to you,” he said.
“I woke up on Sunday morning and had almost forgotten about the draw or that I had an entry in it.
