Monday 17 September, 2012 - An 89-year-old Buderim woman has started the week $301,901.66 richer after winning a division one share of the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw!
When she received the dream-come-true call from Golden Casket the winner said she was thrilled at hearing the news.
“I was hoping you were calling to say I’d won so I could help so many people!” she exclaimed.
“I’ll be able to do such wonderful things to help others. I have some very dear friends and family members who are in need so I plan on giving them a bit of happiness.
“I haven’t got too much time left so sharing the prize money with others will give me so much joy,” said the generous winner.
When asked by a Golden Casket representative what she’ll do to celebrate the winner said she would keep things low key.
“I’ll probably go out dinner I suppose. But why don’t you pop in and have a cup of tea with me to celebrate? You’re not too far away in Brisbane!”
The winning woman purchased her 18-game Super QuickPick entry from Nextra Buderim, Shop 2 at Buderim Market Place, 67 Burnett St.
In exactly one month, more than $17.3 million in lotto prize money has been won on the Sunshine Coast.
On 15 August, a Wednesday Gold Lotto ticket worth $1 million was purchased from newsXpress Nambour Plaza, followed closely by a $2.17 million Saturday Gold Lotto win on 18 August, from Noosa Village News in Noosaville.
Later that month on 28 August newsXpress Noosa Civic sold the entry that won the $13 million Oz Lotto jackpot prize, then on 8 September Noosa Junction Newsagency in Noosa Heads sold a winning Saturday Gold Lotto entry worth $850,000.
After all this good fortune comes the most recent Saturday Gold Lotto win of more than $300,000 from Nextra Buderim on 15 September.
