Saturday Gold Lotto winners ‘blown away’ by division one prize!

Monday 30 December, 2013 - A couple who purchased their Saturday Gold Lotto ticket from Bundaberg will start the New Year more than $610,000 richer after winning a division one share in the weekend’s draw. 

The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, said they had trouble believing they’d won a division one prize worth $610,368.55 in Saturday Gold Lotto. 

“When I checked our numbers and realised we’d won, I called out to my husband to tell him,” the winner explained. 

“I asked him to double check the ticket because I couldn’t believe it. We’re blown away by this win!” 

The winners said it’s too early to say what they’ll do with their Saturday Gold Lotto windfall. 

“We’re going to take our time and not rush into anything.” 

The winning 18-game QuickPick was purchased at McCrackens Newsagency, 115 Bourbong Street in Bundaberg. 

It’s the second time this year the outlet has sold a division one winning entry. In September, McCrackens Newsagency sold a Saturday Gold Lotto first division ticket worth more than $470,000. 

Throughout Australia, there were seven entries that won a first division share in Saturday Gold Lotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool, each worth $610,368.55. Along with the winning ticket sold in Bundaberg, another winning entry was from Queensland, three winning entries were purchased in Victoria, and two were purchased in Western Australia. 

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3385 on 28 December 2013 were 25, 26, 22, 24, 17 and 40 with the supplementary numbers 30 and 13. 

Tickets are now on sale for Gold Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw on 4 January 2014! Wouldn’t it be nice to start the New Year with a bang?
