Brisbane woman tunes in to Saturday Gold Lotto win!

Monday 8 September, 2014 - A Brisbane woman’s Saturday night ritual of watching the Saturday Gold Lotto draw on television had a surprising ending this week when she discovered she’d won a first division share worth more than $754,000 in the weekend’s draw! 

The winner from Brisbane’s southside said she was ‘calm and casual’ as she watched the draw on television with her Saturday Gold Lotto entry and a pen in her hand. 

“I was busy circling, circling, and circling winning numbers on my Saturday Gold Lotto ticket. I noticed towards the end of the draw that I already had five winning numbers so I knew I’d won something. Then the last number was drawn and I circled it on my ticket and realised I had all six winning numbers!” the excitied winner exclaimed. 

“I was speechless for about 10 minutes. I finally looked at my partner and he simply said to me, ‘You’ve done it!’ and I replied, ‘I know but it just doesn’t seem real!’ 

“My Saturday Gold Lotto first division win will make such a difference. I’ll use my prize money to pay off my mortgage, buy myself a new car, and then the rest will be invested for my retirement down the track.” 

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous. The winning 18-game QuickPick entry was purchased at IGA Algester, Shop 13, 188 Algester Road in Algester. 

Throughout Australia, there were six entries that won a first division share of Saturday Gold Lotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool, each worth $754,800.43. Along with the winning entry from Queensland, there were three winning tickets purchased in New South Wales, and one each in Victoria and South Australia.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3457 on 6 September 2014 were 43, 17, 27, 10, 34 and 4 with the supplementary numbers of 26 and 18.
