Ipswich man’s ‘surreal’ win

The winner, in his 40s, said he discovered he’d won first division in the weekend’s draw when he checked his QuickPick entry on the internet on Sunday morning. 

“It was so surreal when I realised I had all six winning numbers!” the excited winner declared. 

“This division one win really takes the pressure off. I’ll now take my time and have a think about what I’ll do with my Saturday Gold Lotto windfall.”

Mackay man’s purr-fect division one win 

 A Mackay man in his 50s said he owes his division one win in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw to the family’s pet cat! 

“We were out of cat food so I had to go down to the shops to buy some more,” the winner explained. 

“It was while I was at the shops that I decided to also grab a Saturday Gold Lotto ticket. So if it wasn’t for our cat, I wouldn’t have bought my winning ticket! 

“Winning this prize money takes away a lot of stress. We won’t have debts anymore and I’ll be able to retire early!”
