Pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for North Bundaberg!

Thursday 8 August, 2013 - A couple from the Bundaberg region are Queensland’s newest millionaires after the ticket they purchased in North Bundaberg won division one in Wednesday Gold Lotto! 

The wife was taken by complete surprise when Golden Casket called her this morning to inform her that she and her husband had won $1 million in last night’s draw. 

“You’re joking me! Are you serious? I cannot believe this!” the ecstatic winner screamed. 

“This is fantastic. I won’t be able to keep my husband at work now!” 

The excited winner said their win could mean early retirement for both of them. 

“We’d be able to enjoy good health, a peaceful life, and maybe some travel!” 

The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their entry from North Bundy News, Shop 8 in Northway Plaza Shopping Centre in Queen Street, North Bundaberg. 

Owners Rolf and Donna Fuernsinn said the Wednesday Gold Lotto win is exciting and welcomed news after what has been an extremely challenging year. 

“We only reopened about eight weeks ago after being closed for more than four months due to the January floods,” Mr Fuernsinn said. 

“Maybe this is a good omen for North Bundy!” 

The winning numbers in Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3344 on 7 August 2013 were 35, 13, 2, 1, 24 and 40 with the supplementary numbers of 37 and 8. 

There is another chance for players to win big this week with $20 million up for grabs in Saturday Gold Lotto’s $20 Million Superdraw!
