A Logan couple holidaying in Cairns have had their trip take an expected turn, picking up a $1 million division one winning ticket in this week’s Gold Lotto draw.
An official from The Lott called the winners, who were still reeling from their million-dollar discovery.
“We checked the ticket on The Lott app last night,” the winning man says. “We couldn’t believe it. We thought it must be a mistake. Nothing like this has ever happened to us, so it felt like a dream. We called our kids to let them know and they thought we were joking, but we said, ‘I don’t think we are!’.
“We had a very restless night after that. We both had about an hour of sleep!
“It’s just amazing.”
So, what’s the plans for their big win? The delighted duo says they were still coming to terms with the news.
“Honestly, we have no idea what we will do,” the winning woman says. “We’d like to go and see a financial advisor before we make any big decisions.
“We know we will use it for our retirement, but we want to make sure we are wise with it.”
The pair, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their System 7 QuickPick entry at Spar Holloways Beach, Holloways Beach.
