Saturday Gold Lotto prize will 'buy a couple of meat pies'!

Tuesday 9 June, 2015 - Forget the fancy dinner or bottle of bubbly, a first division winner from the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw could only think about meat pies when he discovered he’d won more than $739,000 with an entry he purchased on the Gold Coast.

The retired Brisbane man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was unaware he’d won first division and other divisional prizes totalling $739,894.73 in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw until Golden Casket contacted him this morning.

“Are you calling me with good news?” the winner initially asked.

“I’ve won how much? Well that’ll buy a couple of meat pies! In all seriousness, I’ll carry on as normal but I’d like to use my Saturday Gold Lotto windfall to help my children!”

The registered winning System 8 recorded entry was purchased at News Extra Highland Park, Shop 13, 104 – 106 Alexander Drive in Highland Park.

News Extra Highland Park has now scored a hat trick with this latest division winning entry bringing the outlet’s tally to three in a little more than 12 months.

The same outlet sold a $1.1 million division one winning entry in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3425 in May last year, and just ten days later sold a $15 million winning entry in Oz Lotto draw 1058.

Division one winning ticket sold in Victoria Point

A division one winning Saturday Gold Lotto ticket from the weekend’s draw was purchased in the Bayside suburb of Victoria Point, but the winner has not yet come forward to claim their first division prize!

The winning unregistered Saturday Gold Lotto ticket was purchased from News Worx, Shop 28, 2 – 34 Bunker Road in Victoria Point.
