Monday 23 April, 2012 - A Forest Lake family won $1,369,698.34 in Gold Lotto on Saturday, years after a psychic predicted they would come into a large sum of money.
The mother explained that she has always had a feeling that one day she would win Gold Lotto.
“I’ve always had a sixth sense that I would win big in Gold Lotto,” she said.
“Several psychics and tarot card readers have confirmed this prediction over the years.
“I normally only play my lucky numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto but last week, I had a feeling that I should buy a QuickPick entry as well.
“I’m so glad I did as that was the winning ticket!
“I checked the draw results at www.goldencasket.com on Sunday morning and wrote down the winning numbers; then I manually checked my QuickPick, line by line.”
The mother explained that she has been praying for a windfall to enable her to assist her grown children.
“My prayers have been answered,” she said.
“Now I’ll be able to clear my children’s debts so that they can get back on track with their finances.
“I’ll also be able to buy a home of my own and perhaps fulfil my ambition of setting up a family business.”
The family purchased their winning 36 game Jumbo QuickPick ticket from Nextra Drewvale in the Grand Plaza Shopping Centre at Browns Plains in Brisbane.
There were three division one winners nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3209 on 21 April 2012; all three division one winners were from Queensland.
The winning numbers were 1, 15, 16, 21, 28 and 2 with supplementary numbers 35 and 40.
