Missing Saturday Gold Lotto winners claim $1.3 million prize!

Tuesday 15 July, 2014 - A Rockhampton couple are in shock today after discovering they’re now millionaires after their Gold Lotto ticket won a $1.3 million first division share in Saturday Gold Lotto! 

The stunned winners, who wish to remain anonymous, admitted they were unaware they’d won a division one prize of $1,385,235.16 in the weekend’s draw until this morning when they checked their ticket. 

“I’d decided to sit down and check our Saturday Gold Lotto ticket while I had my morning cup of tea,” one of the winners explained.

“When I realised we had all six winning numbers, I started to hyperventilate! This sort of thing doesn’t happen to us!” she added in disbelief. 

The winning man said while they are regular Saturday Gold Lotto players, he only purchased their winning 50-game QuickPick on the spur of the moment. 

“I actually went into the newsagent to get some magazines and I thought I’ll also buy a Gold Lotto ticket! I just can’t believe we’ve won!” he exclaimed. 

“We’ll pay off the mortgage first. We never thought we’d be mortgage free. We’ll then sit and have a think about what we’ll do with our prize money.” 

The unregistered winning Saturday Gold Lotto entry was purchased from Wandal Newsagency at 17 Wandal Road in Rockhampton.
