Monday 13 August, 2012 - A Brisbane woman woke up on Sunday to the news that she was a millionaire after winning a first division share of Saturday Gold Lotto’s $20 million Superdraw!
The woman said she was so shocked when she heard about the win that she felt her heart beating faster.
“I was notified to say that I’d won something in the Superdraw and I thought to myself, wouldn’t $10,000 be nice, or even $1,000,” she said.
“When I found out I’d won just over $1 million my blood pressure went through the roof!”
Once her nerves settle, the winner said she’ll think about how to use the money very carefully.
“It won’t be frivolously spent,” she said.
“I’ll buy a new place to live then plan for my retirement. Now I can be semi-retired a lot sooner.”
The winning entry was purchased from Golden Casket online at www.goldencasket.com, right before the draw closed.
“I didn’t get a chance to buy an entry at a Golden Casket outlet so I jumped online to buy a QuickPick the hour before the draw on Saturday night.
“Good timing I’d say!”
Throughout Australia 19 winners shared the $20 million division one prize pool in Saturday Gold Lotto’s Superdraw and will claim $1,052,631.58 each.
Along with the Brisbane winner, two more winning tickets were sold in Queensland, six were sold from
Tatts, the Victorian based lottery operator, four of the winning tickets were sold in NSW, three in Western Australia, two in the Northern Territory and one in South Australia.
