Cardwell family kick starts Christmas season with Gold Lotto win!

Monday 19 November, 2012 - A family from Cardwell is reeling today after discovering they’d won a first division prize of $324,696.90 in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw!

The winning family spoke to Golden Casket this morning and said they were still shaking about the news.

“I checked the numbers in the newspaper on Sunday morning and quickly went to wake my wife to tell her our numbers had come up!” the winning husband exclaimed.

“It’s only just starting to sink in now, and it’s a really cool feeling. We’ve been playing for around 15 years and it’s great timing to win.

“We’ll be able to pay off the mortgage with this money and buy my wife a new car. But we’d like to keep the news quiet. “It will make Christmas extra special for our family.”

The winning ticket was purchased from Cardwell Newsagency, 83 Victoria Street in Cardwell.

Throughout Australia, there were 13 winners who claimed a $324,696.90 share of the estimated $4 million Saturday Gold Lotto division one prize pool. Along with the winning Queensland entry, there were nine winning tickets purchased in Victoria and three in Western Australia.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3269 on 17 November 2012 were 8, 33, 20, 5, 11 and 29 with the supplementary numbers 28 and 38.
