A GOLD Coast family has won more than $1 million in lotto.

The winners took out the first division prize in the Wednesday Gold Lotto draw, plus the third and forth division.

The winning father said they were in shock.

"We looked up the draw results on a mobile phone last night and thought it was all a dream," he said.

"We always play with a different combination of numbers that mean something to us and just yesterday we changed two of them before buying our ticket.

"I'm so nervous now…and excited…but really quite nervous."

The winning man said the money would change their life.

"We don't have a car so now we can buy one and our kids can stay out of the rain on the way to school."

The couple also hope to get their long-awaited honeymoon.

"When we got married years ago we couldn't afford to go away afterwards, we just went straight back to work the next day," he said.

"This money means we can celebrate our anniversary this year by having the honeymoon we never had."

The winning ticket was purchased from Shamrock News & Lotto, at Australia Fair Shopping Centre, Southport.

The winning numbers draw 3228 on were 6, 27, 24, 26, 42 and 18 with supplementaries 41 and 14.

The Gold Coast man was the sole division one winner of last night's draw, while there were also two division two winners who took home $15,203.95 each.
