Couple to celebrate Gold Lotto win with "mud crab dinner"!

Monday 17 September, 2012 - A couple from Ormiston were caught by surprise this morning when they received the dream-come-true call from Golden Casket informing them they’d won a first division prize in Saturday Gold Lotto!

The couple in their 50s won a prize of $301,901.66 with a 12-game entry they purchased online at goldencasket.com.

The winning man was initially lost for words upon hearing the news. “We just feel really blessed,” he said.

“Now we’ll be able to clear some debt that I thought I’d be paying off for the rest of my life!

“We’ll also be able to fix up the car and the caravan,” he added.

The couple plans to continue supporting some causes close to their heart.

“We’ve always been involved with a number of charities so we’ll definitely be donating some of the prize money to them.”

The winners will take a moment to celebrate the news beforehand however.

“I’m going to take my wife out for a mud crab dinner! I suppose we’ll have to pop a bottle of champagne too!” the winning man laughed.

Throughout Australia, there were fourteen winners who shared in Saturday’s guaranteed $4 million division one prize pool. There were three winners in Queensland, ten in Victoria and one in Western Australia.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3251 on 15 September 2012 were 32, 34, 19, 2, 11 and 23 with the supplementary numbers 10 and 39.

Golden Casket Public Relations Executive Zoe Knobel said she expects there will be more happy winners in Queensland this month.

“The $22 million Saturday Gold Lotto Superdraw on 22 September is this weekend, so grab your entry today for your chance to win!” Ms Knobel said.

“Remember to register your entry to a Winners Circle Card so we can contact you to share the good news of a first division win.”
