Forget the luck of the Irish, the luck of the Gold Coast is still going strong after one of the winning tickets in last night's $80 million Oz Lotto Jackpot was purchased in our city.
A Sunshine Coast man bought the entry that scored him $40 million at NewsXpress Robina Town Centre.
The now multi-millionaire telling Gold Lotto officials, the cash will help him achieve his dream of heading to the Italian Grand Prix.
To add to his windfall, the new multi-millionaire's System-8 entry also won division three seven times, adding another $28,000 to his prize pool.
He told lotto officials he would keep working but was already looking at a career change and pursuing a job he was passionate about.
The lucky punter shares the windfall with a fellow Queenslander, with a mum from Ipswich holding the second winning entry.
