The retiree was one of six division one winners in the Saturday Gold Lotto, taking home $1 million.

The lucky winner said he bought the ticket online last minute on Saturday night.

"I have got to say I got a bit of a shock yesterday when I checked my ticket," he said.

"Something in the back of my mind was telling me to get online and check my entry, that's when I got the surprise of my life."

The man said he and his wife would be able to enjoy their retirement with their winnings.

"We're both retired and we will be able to really enjoy it throughout our retirement," he said.

"We will probably look at upgrading the house and helping our children out as well."

In the last financial year, Saturday Gold Lotto created 174 millionaires across Australia.
