Twin wins has Cairns woman leaping for joy on leap day!

Monday 29 February 2016 - The overjoyed winner declared she has an extra spring in her step today after her two Saturday Gold Lotto entries in the weekend’s draw scored a division one prize of more than $674,000 each.

“It was a mistake that has led to a big reward!” the ecstatic winner exclaimed.

“I only meant to buy one entry in the draw but when I was purchasing my ticket on my account, I accidently selected both of my registered Saturday Gold Lotto games!

“I saw the winning numbers yesterday and thought they looked familiar so I decided to log on to my account. When checked one of my entries and I saw that I’d won, I freaked out! I even called my sister and asked her to double check that I really had won.

“It wasn’t until after I got off the phone with my sister that I saw I had another winning entry in the weekend’s draw and I freaked out all over again! I picked those winning numbers because they mean something special to me.

“I spent yesterday wondering if it was a dream and whether I was going to wake up! Today I’ve got an extra spring in my step! I’m planning to use my prize money to buy a home and I’ll also share with family.”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.
