Sleepless night for Saturday Gold Lotto winner!

Monday 2 September, 2013 - Imagine trying to get to sleep after discovering you were more than $700,000 richer after winning division one in Saturday Gold Lotto! 

One Gold Coast man in his 30s admitted he had a sleepless night after he realised he’d won a first division share worth $715,471.82 in the weekend’s draw. 

“I decided to check my numbers online just before I went to bed on Saturday night,” the winner explained. 

“After I found out I’d won division one, I didn’t get much sleep that night!” 

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said the windfall means he can now be mortgage free. 

“I’ll also be able to help my parents and put some of the money towards a holiday,” the winner added. 

The winning 36-game QuickPick was purchased from The Pines Kiosk in The Pines Shopping Centre, K P McGrath Drive at Elanora. 

Throughout Australia, there were six entries that won a first division share of Saturday Gold Lotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool, worth $715,471.82. Along with the winning ticket purchased at Elanora, a winning entry was purchased in Victoria and Tasmania, and three were sold in Western Australia. 

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3351 on 31 August 2013 were 39, 18, 15, 41, 28 and 26 with the supplementary numbers of 11 and 42.
