Monday 5 April, 2014 - Winners are grinners and a woman who purchased her Saturday Gold Lotto ticket in Browns Plains said she couldn’t wipe the smile off her face after winning her first division prize of more than $450,000 in the weekend’s draw!
The ecstatic winner said she discovered she’d won first division when she checked her Saturday Gold Lotto ticket at home yesterday.
“When I realised I had all the winning numbers, I just screamed!” the winner exclaimed.
“Then I told my husband that we’d won Gold Lotto and we both literally hit the floor!”
“It actually hurt when we hit the floor,” the winner’s husband jokingly added.
“I think I screamed all day yesterday! We didn’t even leave the house because we didn’t want to let our winning ticket out of our sight!” the winner said.
“I’m still reeling! It’s so surreal to win; we’re just normal people!
“My husband and I will use the Saturday Gold Lotto prize money to pay off the mortgage and then I think we’ll have a nice family holiday.”
The unregistered winning 12-game QuickPick was purchased at Nextra Drewvale, Shop 8 in Grand Plaza Shopping Centre, Browns Plains Road in Browns Plains.
