It's off to work for Gladstone's $1.9 million division one winner!

A Gladstone woman still turned up to work today even though she’d become a millionaire over the weekend after winning more than $1.9 million in Saturday Gold Lotto.

The delighted winner admitted she hasn’t been able to wipe the smile off her face since she realised her 24-game QuickPick entry was only one of two first division winning entries in Australia and had won a division one prize of $1,969,658.04!

“I still can’t believe it! This sort of thing doesn’t happen to me! I’m still in shock but I did manage to go work today,” the ecstatic winner declared.

“The feeling is just so surreal. I found out I’d won on Sunday morning. I have the Lott App on my iPad so I checked my Saturday Gold Lotto ticket after I woke up.

“I really couldn’t comprehend what I was seeing. I woke up my husband and said, ‘I think I might have won Gold Lotto!’. We’ve been beside ourselves ever since!

“I haven’t been able to wipe this smile off my face! This win is just the best and it couldn’t have been better timed.

“Things have been tight recently so we’ll be able to pay off our mortgage, share with our family and take an overseas holiday. I’d also really love to do some random acts of kindness and help others out.”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The division one winning 24-game QuickPick entry was purchased from Nextra Valley News, Shop 15 in Centro Valley Shopping Centre, Goondoon Street in Gladstone.

Rosalie and Bob McPherson are the owners of Nextra Valley News and were overjoyed to discover they’d sold another division one winning ticket.

“I was so excited when I found out we had a first division win!” Mrs McPherson exclaimed.

“I’ve been saying to our customers for the last few months that it’s got to be our turn again soon.

“On Sunday morning as I was logging in to the lottery terminal I thought to myself, ‘I’m going to see Nextra Valley News on the division one report today,’ and I was over the moon when I did!

“We’ve been shouting it proudly since then and all our customers have been so happy for us.

“It’s been almost five years since we sold a $2 million division one winning ticket in Saturday Gold Lotto in November 2011. We’re now hoping we don’t have to wait too long for the next big win!

“We’d like to congratulate our division one winning customer and wish them all the best for the future as a new millionaire!”

Throughout Australia, there were two entries that won a first division prize of $1,969,658.04 in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw. Along with the winning entry from Queensland, the other first division winning entry was purchased in Victoria.

Rockhampton’s division one winner has yet to come forward!

For more than one week, a Saturday Gold Lotto player who purchased an unregistered division one winning ticket in the Rockhampton suburb of Allenstown has remained a mystery!

The Saturday Gold Lotto ticket which won a division one prize worth more than $800,000 in last week’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw was purchased at The Lucky Charm Allenstown, Shop 1 in Allenstown Plaza, Canning Street in Allenstown.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3673 on Saturday 1 October 2016 were 35, 6, 26, 14, 22 and 37, with the supplementary numbers 31 and 10.

Golden Casket is urging all Saturday Gold Lotto players to check their wallets, purses, drawers and even piles of papers stacked on the kitchen bench for any forgotten Saturday Gold Lotto tickets as they could be the missing division one winner.

Anyone who believes they are holding the unregistered division one winning ticket should keep it in a safe place and contact Golden Casket as soon as possible on 131 868.
