A ten share Store Syndicate from Atherton Newsagency also won a division one share plus several other prizes amounting to a total win of $1,169,678.80.

Bundaberg

A couple from the Bundaberg area have won a $1,105,263.16 share in Saturday’s Gold Lotto $21 million division one prize pool with an unregistered Jumbo QuickPick entry.

The winners were unaware of their new millionaire status until they had their entry checked at Golden Arrow Newsagency – the same outlet they had purchased the ticket from.

The shocked winners said they didn’t ever think they would be millionaires.

“This win will make a big difference to our lives. We will be able to pay off the mortgage and help family,” they said.

Redbank Plains

A Goodna mother of two won a $1,105,274.31 share in Saturday Lotto’s $21 million division one prize pool with a ticket purchased from Redbank Plains News.

The winner, who only purchases QuickPick entries, was unaware of her good fortune until she visited Redbank Plains News on Sunday to have her 24 game entry checked.

The winner said she was still in shock and was finding it hard to believe that her bank balance would be more than $1 million.

“When I phoned my family to tell them the good news, some of them thought it was an April fool’s day joke. Some of them took a bit of convincing,” the winner said.

“This win has come at a great time. We will be able to buy a family home and set aside the rest to secure the children’s future.”

Taigum

An unregistered winning ticket was sold from Taigum Newsagency. The winner who wishes to remain anonymous had their ticket checked and has come forward to claim their prize.

This is the seventh division one winning ticket sold from Taigum Newsagency in recent years.
