‘Sweet’ $2 million win in Manly West!

A Bayside couple couldn’t contain their excitement when they discovered they’d become multi-millionaires after their entry in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto $30 Million Megadraw won a $2 million division one prize.

The winning wife broke out into cheers and tears of happiness in the background while her husband was on the telephone with a Golden Casket official who confirmed their total windfall of $2,024,170.40.

“That’s the biggest number I’ve ever seen!” the excited winner exclaimed as he jotted down his division one prize amount.

“Sweet! I took early retirement so I’m young enough to be able to enjoy this prize money! We’ve always had to watch our pennies but now we can relax.

“We take an entry in Saturday Gold Lotto each week and then I usually buy a QuickPick in the big draws like the Megadraw and I guess it worked this time!

“It’s too early to say what we’ll do with our prize money but we will take a really, really nice holiday. And I think my wife will have a shopping list with everything on it!” the new multi-millionaire jokingly added.

The division one winning System 8 QuickPick was purchased at Nextra Manly West, Shop T9 in Mayfair Village, Manly Road in Manly West.
