Could you achieve your New Year's resolutions with a share in $30 Million?

Thursday 2 January, 2014 - This weekend Saturday Gold Lotto is giving players the chance to start the New Year off with a bang with a share in the $30 Million Megadraw! 

Golden Casket asked its Facebook fans what New Year’s resolutions they’d tick off their list if they won a first division prize in the $30 Million Megadraw on Saturday. 

Golden Casket spokesperson Belinda McDougall said the responses from Facebook fans varied widely. 

“The $30 Million Megadraw is one of Saturday Gold Lotto’s most highly anticipated annual events, and we expect around 40% of Australia’s adult population will be in it to win it on Saturday!” Ms McDougall said.

“A number of Saturday Gold Lotto players on Facebook said the first thing they’d do with a share in $30 million is pay off their mortgage, while other responses were a bit quirkier!” she said. 

“Many players said they’d use the prize money to travel overseas, while one would like to buy a caravan and travel around Australia. 

“One player said she’d use a windfall to fix up her teeth, while another would buy a horse for her daughter and one woman said she’d buy lots of “toys”, including jet skis, boats, cars and motorbikes! 

“Some players said they’d invest in their children's future, and some would give money away to charities and local community groups. 

“A number of men and women said they’d retire, while another player said she’s dreaming of winning Saturday Gold Lotto so she can quit her job. 

“These goals align with the most common responses we hear from customers who have won first division prizes in Saturday Gold Lotto,” Ms McDougall said.

“Division one winners often tell us they plan to buy a home or pay off their mortgage, put their feet up after retirement, travel the world and share their good fortune with loved ones,” she added. 

“Last year, 21 Australians began 2013 as winners, each scoring $1.4 million in Saturday Gold Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw. Four of those tickets were purchased in Queensland, so we hope to see many more Megadraw winners in the state on 4 January,” Ms McDougall said. 

Tickets in the $30 Million Megadraw on Saturday 4 January 2014 are now on sale from all Golden Casket outlets and online from Tatts.com.
