That's life changing! I'm speechless!
"That's life changing! I'm speechless" is how Noel Markson (name changed for privacy) responded today after being told that he won the biggest prize home in Australian history!
The RSL Art Union's entire seven apartment complex located on the Gold Coast's idyllic Palm Beach, worth $4 million, is the perfect Christmas present for Mr Markson, his wife and two young children.
Mr Markson's winning ticket was the very last in a $100 book of tickets in the Gold Treasure. To add to the joy, winning with the $100 book gave him an additional book buyer's prize of $100,000!
The Marksons, who hail from Geraldton in Western Australia, are now in a very lucky position where they can choose to live in the brand new luxury penthouse located on the top floor of their $4 million apartment complex, rent it (with an estimated yearly rental income of $177,320) or sell the entire complex (at the total prize value $4,039,048).
Congratulations to the Marksons and all the Draw 311 winners!
Merry Christmas and here's to a prosperous, safe and happy 2014!
