Australian Lottery organizers Tatts are keeping pretty tight-lipped about the man's identity, but state he is a retiree.
The mystery winner shares the top prize with three other ticket holders. All three players will receive AUD$1.9 million.
According to Tatts officials the winner is a long-time lotto player who said: "I've been trying to win Gold Lotto for years although my wife said I won her a long time ago."
He now plans to share some lotto windfall with his family and leave the rest 'sitting in the bank'.
