A Gold Coast man who won $15 million in Oz Lotto says the haul is a good omen for Queensland’s State of Origin chances.
A Gold Coast man hopes his $15 million Oz Lotto haul will be a good omen for Queensland’s State of Origin side.
The man, who is in his 30s and wants to be anonymous, was at work on Wednesday morning when a Golden Casket official contacted him with the news he had won Tuesday night’s jackpot draw.
“With the State of Origin on tonight, this has got to be a good omen for Queensland,” Golden Casket has quoted him as saying.
“I reckon the score will be 15 million to none.”
The man said he would call his wife immediately with the good news.
He said he would “sit and chill” while he thought about what to do with the money, but would definitely use it to help his family.
The ticket was bought from a newsagent in Highland Park, which only 10 days ago sold another division one winning ticket worth $1.1 million.
Oz Lotto’s $30 million jackpot was shared between the man and a 16-member work syndicate in Victoria.
The winning numbers were 32, 12, 3, 23, 40, 2 and 19. The supplementaries were 6 and 37.
