Brisbane friends share $1.1 million prize in Superdraw!

Tuesday 22 March 2016 - Friends are known to share things like fun times, a joke and even a piece of cake, but two ladies from Brisbane have taken it up a notch and shared a $1.1 million division one prize!

The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, won a first division prize worth $1,105,263.16 in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto $21 Million Superdraw with their shared 12-game QuickPick entry.

“It was an absolute shock when we found out that we’d won,” one of the winning friends said.

“I’d taken our ticket into a newsagency on Sunday to get it checked and the staff member said it had won a big prize but I’d have to contact Golden Casket.

“When I got home I sat down to check our entry using the results in the newspaper. I couldn’t believe it when I circled three, four, five and then six numbers on our ticket! I had to call my friend straight away to tell her we’d won Gold Lotto!”

The other winning woman added, “It’s quite funny because earlier in the day I had to borrow a few dollars to buy a sausage at a sausage sizzle because I left my purse at home. Little did I know at that moment I was in fact rich!”

The winning women said while the prize money will be a big help to each of them, they’ll both take their time and think carefully about how they’ll spend their share of the windfall.

The winning 12-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Logan Road Newsagency, 1303 Logan Road in Mount Gravatt.

Manas Swain is the owner of Logan Road Newsagency and said he was so excited when he discovered his outlet had sold a division one winning entry.

“It’s such a good feeling to know that one of your customers is celebrating a big win,” Mr Swain said.

“It’s the first time I’ve had a division one win since I took over the shop in 2014. I often get asked by customers if I’ve had a first division win and now I can say I have!

“I have a small store but I have wonderful customers, and I wish my winners all the best for the future.”

Throughout Australia, there were nineteen entries that won a first division prize of $1,105,263.16 in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto $21 Million Superdraw. There were six division one winning entries from Queensland, four division one winning tickets sold in New South Wales, six in Victoria and three in Western Australia. The other division one winning entries from Queensland were sold in Gladstone, Toowoomba, Chinchilla, Mackay North and online via Tatts.com.
