Monday 6 January, 2014 - Saturday Gold Lotto’s $30 million Megadraw has created two new millionaires in Queensland with each winner set to start 2014 off with a bang after winning a division one prize worth $1,428,571.43! The winning entries were purchased from The Lucky Charm Springwood and Nextra Fernvale.
Flood affected couple win $1.4 million
A Fernvale couple who lost everything three years ago in the devastating 2011 floods are celebrating after winning more than $1.4 million in Saturday Gold Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw!
The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, said they didn’t realise they’d won first division when they initially checked their Saturday Gold Lotto ticket.
“When I checked our entry, I thought we had five of the six winning numbers,” the overjoyed winner explained.
“I told my husband and we were both pretty excited. Then I took another look at the ticket and realised we had all six numbers! We just sat there staring at our winning ticket.
“This win is wonderful for us! We lost everything in the January 2011 floods when a two metre wall of water went through our house.”
The winners said after a tough couple of years they know exactly what’s on top of their shopping list after winning division one and other divisional prizes totalling $1,434,561.83.
“We’ll be buying all new furniture for the house along with a new car.”
The winning System 7 entry was purchased at Nextra Fernvale, 1455 Brisbane Valley Highway in Fernvale.
Winner speechless at $1.4 million Megadraw prize
A couple from Brisbane’s southside are looking forward to being debt free in 2014 after winning a first division prize worth more than $1.4 million in Saturday Gold Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw!
The winners were unaware of their new millionaire status until Golden Casket contacted one of the winning couple this morning to share the news of their big win.
“This is not a crank call is it?” the surprised winner asked.
“Thank you so much! I’m shaking at the moment. I’ve always hoped to win Gold Lotto but never thought I actually would.
“I have to call my wife to tell her. I think she’ll faint so I’ll have to tell her to sit down first. I’m a bit of a prankster so I might have a hard time convincing her we’ve won $1.4 million!”
The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, said they’ll pay off the mortgage with their Megadraw windfall.
The winning 24-game QuickPick was purchased at The Lucky Charm Springwood, Shop 8 in Arndale Shopping Centre, Cinderella Drive in Springwood.
This is another big win for The Lucky Charm Springwood which sold a division one winning ticket in the Mid-Year Megadraw on 29 June 2013 worth $2.5 million.
Twenty one winners across Australia won a division one share worth $1.4 million in Saturday Gold Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw. Along with the two winning entries sold in Queensland, there were three winning tickets sold in New South Wales, eight in Victoria, five in South Australia and three in Western Australia.
