No more mortgage stress for brand new Gold Coast millionaires!

Monday 23 July, 2012 - A Gold Coast couple have started the week as multi-millionaires after winning half of the Saturday Gold Lotto division one prize pool!

The regular players said they are still in shock after discovering they’d won a total prize of $2,077,652.03 in Saturday night’s draw.

“We’ve been playing Gold Lotto with the same special numbers since we were first married over 30 years ago,” the winning man said.

“We’ve won bits and pieces over that time, $100 here and there, but nothing like this!”

The winning man said he narrowly avoided an accident when he read the results and found out they’d won.

“I was sitting down having a coffee at home on Sunday morning while I checked the draw results on the internet,” he said.

“Lucky I wasn’t holding the coffee in my hands when I matched all six winning numbers – I got quite a shock and would have spilled it all over myself!”

He said his wife was delighted when he shared the news with her immediately after discovering their windfall.

“We’re both extremely excited – she cried when we spoke about it, and we’re both feeling a big sense of relief.“

“It still hasn’t hit home; we’ve never had that kind of money.“

“We’ll still work, but this win will allow us to slow down a little and settle the mortgage, which will be a load off our minds.”

The winning entry was purchased from Nextra Village News Nerang at My Centre Nerang on Station Street.

The Gold Coast winners from Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3235 on 21 July 2012 were one of two division one winners nationally, with the other hailing from the Northern Territory.

The winning numbers in draw 3235 were 6, 7, 9, 23, 43 and 3 with supplementary numbers 14 and 25. There were also 86 division two winners who took home $6,563.00 each.
