Brisbane woman predicts Saturday Gold Lotto division one win!

A woman from Brisbane’s northside said she was astonished when she discovered her prediction she’d win Gold Lotto this year came true!

The excited pensioner won a first division share in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw worth $572,766.07.

“I went into a newsagency on Sunday to check my Saturday Gold Lotto ticket using the ticket checker,” the happy winner explained.

“It said on the screen that I’d won but it didn’t show how much so I thought I’d won division three or maybe even division two!

“I was so excited but I didn’t think to get the winning numbers to check my ticket. It was only this morning my husband asked me if we should work out what divisional prize I’d won.

“So he sat down with the results from the newspaper and began checking my numbers. After a short time he announced to me that he thought I’d won first division! All I could say to him was, ‘Ohh! Ohh – truly?’.

“You know I said to my husband at the beginning of the year that I was going to win Gold Lotto this year! I’ve played Gold Lotto for years but it was the first time I’d ever had such a strong feeling.

“They say good things happen in threes and two weeks ago I won a few dollars, then last week I won about $100 and thought that was incredible, and then on the weekend I won first division! So three wins in three weeks!

“I’m not too sure what we’ll do with my prize money just yet. It will be a lovely boost to the retirement fund and it means we can do what we want to do without worrying about the cost.”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The division one winning Saturday Gold Lotto entry was purchased at Lawnton Market News, Shop 3 in Lawnton Country Markets, 718 – 728 Gympie Road in Lawnton.
