"You beauty" man says after winning more than $400,000

A RETIRED Mackay man has won more than $400,000 after the weekend's Saturday Gold Lotto draw.

The man won a share of first division draw.

He was driving his car and had to pull over to the side of the road to answer his dream-come-true phone call from a Golden Casket official with the news he'd won $408,302.66.
"You beauty," he said.
"That's the best news you could ever get on a Monday morning!  This will help my wife and I out enormously.
"My wife is in the car and she's stunned - she's just sitting here with her yap open.
"This is unbelievable!  The most I've ever won is about $800 in Gold Lotto a lot of years ago.
"I used to always buy QuickPick tickets but about four or five years ago I decided I'd start playing the same numbers because one day they might come up and they have!
"They're not even special numbers.  When I was picking my regular numbers, I couldn't think of that many so I used numbers from two old Gold Lotto QuickPick tickets I had.
"I'm retired so this windfall will make things easier for me and my wife.  I'd also like to share some with our kids and help them out a little."
The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.   
The division one winning 12-game marked ticket was purchased at newsXpress Village, Shop 5 in The Village Shopping Centre, 72 Celeber Drive in Andergrove.
Paul Doolan is the owner of newsXpress Village and was happy to be celebrating another division one win at his outlet.
"We sold a division one winning Saturday Gold Lotto ticket worth $750,000 in September last year so we've now had two first division wins in less than twelve months," an excited Mr Doolan said.
"We'd like to congratulate our customer - it's so wonderful to know that a local person has won first division.  Times have been a bit tough in Mackay recently so this is some great news for the community.
"Now we've had two division one wins, we're aiming for the hat trick!  Maybe we can get that third win tomorrow in Oz Lotto's $20 million draw!"
