Thursday 26 April, 2012 - An Ashmore grandfather is a newly minted millionaire after receiving a call from Golden Casket this morning to advise him that his Wednesday Gold Lotto entry had won a division one prize worth $1,000,000.
The happy winner, who has been playing the same numbers in Gold Lotto, Oz Lotto and Powerball for more than 20 years, said he has always dreamed of winning big.
“Good heavens!” he exclaimed when he was told the good news.
“I’ll use the money to help my extended family but will set aside some to pursue one of my favourite hobbies.
“I might treat myself to a new set of golf clubs.”
The man purchased his winning recorded entry from Ashmore News Extra in the Ashmore Plaza on Cotlew Street.
Golden Casket Public Relations Executive Zoe Knobel said the Ashmore grandfather was the only division one Wednesday Gold Lotto winner in Queensland.
“There might be more lucky winners after Tuesday’s Oz Lotto draw, which is offering an enormous $50 million division one prize pool!
“Grab your Oz Lotto ticket today for your chance to be the next big winner.”
The winning numbers in Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3210 on Wednesday 25 April 2012 were 33, 14, 22,
39, 44 and 16 with supplementaries 2 and 6.
