North Burnett man wins $422,000 after scooping The Pools!

Tuesday 28 October, 2014 - A man from the North Burnett town of Eidsvold said he has a lot to think about after scoring a first division win worth more than $422,000 in The Pools, a Golden Casket game where the winning numbers are based on the results of local and international soccer matches.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, was overwhelmed when a Golden Casket official confirmed he’d won a division one prize of $422,436.41 in The Pools draw. 

“I only checked my ticket after I found out the newsagency had sold a division one winning ticket in The Pools!” the stunned winner explained. 

“I really don’t know what I’m going to do my prize money. I’m going to have to think about it!” 

There was only one entry that scooped the entire first division prize pool of $422,436.41 in The Pools. The winning 12-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Eidsvold News, 46 Moreton Street in Eidsvold. 

This is another big win for Eidsvold News which sold a $10 million division one winning ticket in Powerball in 2010. 

The winning numbers in The Pools draw 1526 were 6, 2, 19, 17, 12 and 3. The supplementary number was 30.
