Ipswich friends win $554,000 Saturday Gold Lotto prize!

Monday 15 September, 2014 - Two friends in their early sixties who shared the cost of a ticket in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw will now pocket an equal split of a first division prize along with other divisional prizes totalling $560,926.15! 

One of the winners told a Golden Casket official that they each chose half the winning numbers when they started playing Saturday Gold Lotto together. 

“Oh my goodness - this is fantastic! My friend sent me a message on Sunday asking if we’d won a prize in Saturday Gold Lotto,” the excited winner explained. 

“So I got the ticket out and I checked it and I couldn’t believe it when I saw that we had all six winning numbers! 

“This is just what we both needed! It’s too early to say what I’ll do with my share of our Saturday Gold Lotto prize money but I would like to do some renovations around the house and maybe buy myself a new car!” 

The two women purchased their winning Saturday Gold Lotto System 7 marked entry from Brassall News, Shop 16 in Brassall Shopping Village, Hunter Street in Brassall. 

Throughout Australia, there were eight entries that won a first division share of Saturday Gold Lotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool, each worth $554,821.45. Along with the winning entry purchased in Brassall, four winning entries were purchased in Victoria, and one each in New South Wales, ACT and the Northern Territory. 

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3459 on 13 September 2014 were 1, 10, 14, 5, 33 and 29 with the supplementary numbers of 9 and 22. 

There are more chances to win big this week with $20 million up for grabs in this weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto $20 Million Superdraw. Tickets are available now from all Golden Casket outlets or online from Tatts.com.
