Three Saturday Gold Lotto division one winners in Queensland!

It was triple treat for the Sunshine State with three Queensland entries each winning a division one prize worth more than $500,000 in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto.

The division one winning tickets were purchased from the Gold Coast, Killarney and Logan Village.

Gold Coast grandmother’s $500,000 grin!

A Gold Coast grandmother said she hasn’t been able to wipe the smile off her face since she discovered her entry in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw had won more than half-a-million dollars.

The winning grinning grandmother said she almost didn’t win first division as her entry was a last-minute purchase.

“I rarely buy Saturday Gold Lotto tickets,” the stunned winner explained.

“I’d had a small win on another game and when I was at the newsagency I considered getting another ticket but then walked away.

“After I’d done some shopping, I thought no I will go back and get myself a small ticket in Saturday’s draw and it won!

“I’ve been in a state of shock since I found out I’d won $500,000 on Sunday. I haven’t stopped smiling!

“It’s such a bonus to know that I’m sharing first division with seven other winners around the country who are feeling like I am today!

“I haven’t really thought about what I’ll do with my prize money. Apart from knowing my family will be having a pretty nice Christmas, I think I might buy a new car.”

The division one winning 12-game QuickPick was purchased at newsXpress Treetops Plaza, Shop 20, 7 Classic Way in Burleigh Water.

Jing Li is the owner of newsXpress Treetops Plaza and was over-the-moon to discover her outlet had sold a first division winning ticket.

“This is my first division one win since I took over the store about two years ago!” Ms Li exclaimed.

“I think I’m just as excited as the winner! Our customers have been so happy for us and congratulating us on selling a division one winning ticket.”

Killarney woman dumbstuck by division one win!

A Killarney woman wasn’t expecting to hear she was half-a-million dollars richer when she answered her phone this morning.

The winner was stunned when a Golden Casket official was on the other end of the line and broke the life-changing news that she’d won a first division prize worth more than $500,000 in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.

“I can’t believe it! I hope this is not a joke!” the winner exclaimed.

“Look I never ever thought… This is just… I really don’t know what to say – I’m speechless!

“I sometimes say to my husband, we didn’t get a phone call from Golden Casket so we mustn’t have won! I really am dumbstruck by this news.

“We’re retired so we have to watch our pennies and we’ve been wondering how long our savings will last. I can’t say what we might do with our division one win but I’d love to do some renovations.”

The division one winning 18-game marked entry was purchased at Killarney Newsagency, 28 Willow Street in Killarney.

 Division one win in Logan Village!

A Saturday Gold Lotto entry purchased in the South-East Queensland town of Logan Village has scored a first division prize in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.

But just who is celebrating winning more than $500,000 will remain a town secret as the winner has chosen to remain completely anonymous.

The division one winning 18-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Logan Village News, Shop 4 in Logan Village Shopping Centre, corner of Albert and North Streets in Logan Village.

Rosalind Leong is the owner of Logan Village News and excited to be celebrating her first division one win since owning the outlet.

“We’re just so happy!” Ms Leong said.

“This is our first division one win since we took over the outlet years ago so we’re extremely excited.

“We’re buzzing and so are our customers who’ve been congratulating us on selling a winning ticket. Now that we’ve had our first big win, we’d like to add to our tally and sooner rather than later!”

Throughout Australia, there were eight entries that won a first division prize of $500,809.20 in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
