Sunshine Coast Resident Strikes Gold with Winning Superdraw Ticket

The future is looking bright for a Sunshine Coast resident who scooped a share of Saturday's (Australia Lottery) Gold Lotto $21 million superdraw.

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'.
