Bargara retirees win in Gold Lotto

Monday 5 March, 2012 - A retired Bargara couple are starting the month on a high note, after today finding out that they won a division one prize worth $474,094.13 in Saturday Gold Lotto.

The pair was in disbelief when Golden Casket phoned to advise them of their win.

“Tell me that prize amount again!” the wife exclaimed.

“I just can’t believe it! I’m so excited that I’m trembling!

“We saw the article in the paper saying that newsXpress Bargara had sold a division one winning ticket in Saturday’s draw, but never for a moment did we think it could be us!

“My husband and I have been playing the same numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto for over 30 years.

“I can’t recall exactly how we chose them, but we have stuck with them for all those years.

“We usually watch the televised draw on a Saturday night, but we didn’t this week.

“Had we tuned in like we normally do, we would have recognised the numbers as ours!”

When asked how they plan to use their prize money, the couple said they would take some time to think about it.

“We’ll upgrade our car for a start,” they said.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3195 on 3 March were 11, 5, 4, 14, 12 and 31, with supplementary numbers 6 and 16.

There were nine division one winners nationally in Gold Lotto draw 3195. There were four division one

winners in Queensland, two division one winners in Victoria, and one each in the Northern Territory, Tasmania and Western Australia.
