Monday 30 December, 2013 - A Ningi couple said they’ll be able to start their New Year in a new house after winning a first division share in Saturday Gold Lotto!
The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, were shocked to discover their ticket in the weekend’s draw won a division one prize worth $610,368.55.
“I checked my ticket online and I couldn’t believe it!” the winner said.
“I told my husband that we’d won six hundred and ten. He thought I meant $610 and he was happy with that! I had to tell him that we’d actually won $610,000!
“We are shell-shocked. It’s taken a little time to sink in. Yesterday we kept looking at each other and saying, ‘We’ve won Gold Lotto!’
“We haven’t been able to afford to buy a house; now we can buy one and be mortgage free.”
The winners purchased their winning 36-game QuickPick online.
Throughout Australia, there were seven entries that won a first division share in Saturday Gold Lotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool, each worth $610,368.55. Along with the winning ticket sold online, another winning entry was sold in Bundaberg, three winning entries were purchased in Victoria, and two were purchased in Western Australia.
The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3385 on 28 December 2013 were 25, 26, 22, 24, 17 and 40 with the supplementary numbers 30 and 13.
