Redcliffe Shopper Took 3 Weeks to Discover They’re $1 Million Richer

This Redcliffe shopper’s life took an unexpected turn when he finally discovered, three weeks after the draw, that he had just turned $1 million richer.

It took three weeks before the lucky shopper decided to check his ticket and they were elated to discover that the Aug 23 draw had made him a millionaire!

The winning ticket held the only division one prize nationally for that Gold draw. It was purchased at Midway News, located at Shop 2, 544 Oxley Avenue in Redcliffe. The Lott officials, however, have no way of directly notifying the lucky winner as the winning ticket was not registered to a player card. 

How the winner plans to spend the windfall will remain a mystery as the lucky winner has chosen to remain anonymous to celebrate their newfound wealth in private.

Midway News owner, Deepak Rawat, expressed his elation at selling the winning ticket. He said, “We couldn’t believe the news when we found out we’d sold a division one winning entry in a recent Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw. It’s a good feeling to sell a division one winning ticket, and our customers have been so happy to hear the winning news when they visit us in-store.”

“On behalf of the entire Midway News team, we wish our winner all the best with their prize and hope their dreams come true.”

The Lott spokesperson Anna Hobdell commented on the winner’s good fortune, saying, “While we don’t know how they’ll celebrate their extraordinary prize, there’s no doubt their head was spinning when they realised they’d receive $1 million in their bank account this September.” She added, “However our winner chooses to use their prize, we hope they enjoy their winning feeling as long as they can!”

The winning numbers on Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 4315 on Wednesday, 23 August 2023, were 13, 9, 14, 7, 20, and 30, with supplementary numbers 33 and 27.
