Retirement for Woombye's $1 million Superdraw winner!

Wednesday 4 November 2015 - A Sunshine Coast couple’s normally quiet household erupted into pandemonium this morning when they discovered they’d won a $1 million first division prize in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto $20 Million Superdraw.

The winners were completely unaware they were new millionaires until a Golden Casket official was able to get in contact with them today and break the life-changing news.

“You are kidding me? You’ve got to be kidding me?” the winning wife questioned.

“This is what people dream about and now I know that dreams really do come true!

“Luck really was with me the other day! I was walking past the newsagency and thought I’d better grab a Gold Lotto entry because there was $20 million on offer!

“Everyone is going crazy here at the moment! They’re all making phone calls and breaking the news that we’ve won Gold Lotto to other family members. My husband must have been shaving when you called because he’s still got shaving cream on half of his face! It’s a bit of a madhouse!

“Oh my goodness – it’s really starting to sink in now that I’ve won a million dollars. I’m starting to get the shakes!

“You have no idea what this means to us. This prize money will take so much pressure off us and I’ve been wanting to retire so this means I’ll now be able to!”

The winners have chosen to remain anonymous.

The division one winning 18-game QuickPick entry was purchased from Woombye Newsagency, 18 Blackall Street in Woombye.

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 Woombye, 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.

$50 million Powerball jackpot up for grabs!

There are more chances to win big this week with Powerball jackpotting to $50 million for Thursday’s draw!

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

“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 said.

Ms McDougall also offered some valuable advice to lottery players taking part in Thursday’s big draw.

“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.”
