Thursday 26 June, 2014 - The matriarch of the family set up the Wednesday Gold Lotto syndicate including herself and her four children earlier this year.
Golden Casket spoke with one of her thrilled daughters today.
“I checked the Gold Lotto results this morning and Mum couldn’t believe it when I told her we had won! We were both going cross-eyed staring at those numbers!” one of the winning women said.
“It almost gave Mum a heart attack!
“She started this family ticket for Wednesday Gold Lotto around six months ago and we had planned to divide up our winnings at the end of the year like a Christmas bonus. I suppose Christmas has come early!
“The five of us don’t all live in Cairns, one of my brothers is down in Tasmania so I’m very excited to share the good news with him!
“I’m going to use part of my $200,000 share to explore more of my own backyard. It’s been around 40 years since I saw the Great Barrier Reef, and I think I should go again sooner rather than later.
“We often play Lotto together when there are big Oz Lotto and Powerball jackpots, and we have a ticket in this weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto Superdraw too so we’ll see how we go then!” she added.
The winning Wednesday Gold Lotto 12-game QuickPick entry was purchased from Raintrees Newsagency, Shop 24 in Raintrees Shopping Centre, 1 Koch Street in Cairns.
