Halloween dream for $1 million Superdraw winner!

Monday 2 November 2015 - A woman from Brisbane’s northside said winning a first division share in Saturday Gold Lotto’s $20 Million Superdraw was more of a Halloween dream rather than a Halloween scream!

The winner who came forward to Golden Casket today to claim her $1 million division one prize admitted she was fast asleep when her winning numbers came up in Saturday’s Superdraw.

“I’d actually gone to bed before the draw on Saturday night! So I went to sleep a normal person and woke up a new millionaire!” the excited winner exclaimed.

“I just couldn’t believe it when I realised I’d won first division on Sunday morning! Thankfully I bought a QuickPick entry into the Superdraw because I would have never picked those winning numbers!

“It’s wonderful to know that the division one prize pool was shared across the country. It makes me happy to know that there are nineteen other people who are feeling just like me today!

“It’s too early to say exactly what I’ll do with all my prize money but I would like to buy myself a home.”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The division one winning 18-game QuickPick entry was purchased from News Extra Everton Park, Shop 9 in Everton Park Retail Centre, 768 Stafford Road in Everton Park.

Throughout Australia, there were 20 entries that won a first division share of Saturday Gold Lotto’s $20 Million Superdraw on Saturday 31 October, each worth $1 million. Apart from the division one winning entry from Everton Park, two other first division winning entries were from Queensland, five were sold in New South Wales, one in the ACT, six in Victoria, two in Tasmania, one from South Australia and two were purchased in Western Australia.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3577 on Saturday 31 October 2015 were 20, 10, 19, 37, 14 and 27 with the supplementary numbers of 29 and 13.

There’s a combined jackpot of $75 million on offer this week!

Queenslanders will have the chance to share in a massive $75 million in first division prize money this week with two games jackpotting!

The excitement starts with tomorrow night’s Oz Lotto draw with $25 million jackpot up for grabs which will be followed by Powerball’s out-of-this-world $50 million jackpot draw on Thursday.

Golden Casket spokesperson Belinda McDougall said this week would be massive with such an enormous amount of prize money up for grabs.

“We expect the level of interest and excitement from our players will be extremely high. Hopefully we will be making a few phone calls to some excited new Queensland millionaires or even multi-millionaires this week,” Ms McDougall said.

“At times when we have such a huge amount of prize money on offer we often see Golden Casket outlet staff run off their feet with players rushing in to purchase their entries.”

Ms McDougall also offered some valuable advice to lottery players taking part in this week’s big draws.

“When purchasing lottery tickets our advice is to always register them to a Winners Circle card. It is an important step that will protect players from missing out on prizes and also should they win one of the big prizes on offer this week, Golden Casket will contact them with the good news.”
