Australian Man Who

January 10, 2020
A Queensland bushfire victim, whose uninsured home was burned to the ground, will be able to rebuild it after winning a million dollars in a lottery.
The overjoyed man, from Mount Cotton, south of Brisbane, says he hopes his win is the beginning of better things to come.
"All that was left of the home was a few charred teacups," the Lotto winner - who wished to remain anonymous - said.
The man said he used his wife's lucky numbers on his Gold Lotto entry, which was drawn on Wednesday.
"They've delivered in a big way, this is a miracle," he said.
He was the only division one winner, winning him a prize of one million dollars.
"I can't wait to go home and give my wife a big kiss and a cuddle," he said.
