Brisbane man wins Saturday Gold Lotto twice in the same draw!

Monday 25 November, 2013 - What’s better than winning Saturday Gold Lotto? How about winning it twice! 

A man from Brisbane’s northern suburbs has won not one, but two first division prizes in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw after purchasing two marked entries using his regular numbers in the same draw!

Each entry scored a division one share worth $820,160.65 so the winning man won a total prize of $1,640,321.30! 

“We were going on a holiday so I bought all my Saturday Gold Lotto tickets for while we were away,” the shocked winner explained. 

“The day before we were leaving I wasn’t sure if I’d got a ticket in the draw that happened on Saturday night so I bought another one using my regular numbers. 

“When I checked one of the tickets, I realised I had four numbers and then I checked further and discovered I had all six and we’d won division one. 

“About 10 minutes later I was going through some old lotto tickets and found another entry in the weekend’s draw! 

“I told my wife we’d won twice but she said to me, ‘I’ll believe it after you check it at the newsagency!’” 

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said his first purchase will be something nice for his wife. 

The man purchased his two winning 12-game registered tickets in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3375 from Aspley Day and Night News, 1374 Gympie Road in Aspley. 

Aspley Day and Night News owner Bevan Webb was over the moon after discovering his store had sold two winning tickets in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw. 

“A division one win had been eluding us for years. It really is a win-win for not only us as the new owners but all the past owners of the store as well!” Mr Webb said. 

Throughout Australia, there were five entries that won a first division share in Saturday Gold Lotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool, each worth $820,160.65. Along with the two winning tickets sold at Aspley, another winning entry was purchased on the Gold Coast, and there were two sold in Victoria. 

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3375 on 23 November 2013 were 31, 39, 7, 20, 30 and 5 with the supplementary numbers 22 and 9. 

There are more chances to win big this week with $20 million up for grabs in Tuesday’s Oz Lotto draw and Powerball has jackpotted to $15 million on Thursday.
