Gold Lotto rainbow delivers $1.5 million Superdraw win to Gladstone couple!

A Gladstone couple said they’re still coming to terms with their status as new millionaires after winning a first division share in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto $22 Million Superdraw!

The shocked couple discovered they were $1.5 million richer when they checked their 50-game QuickPick at home on Sunday afternoon.

“I got the winning numbers off the internet and after I realised we’d won, I jumped up and yelled out to my wife, ‘We’ve got the numbers! We’ve got the numbers!’” the excited winning husband explained.

“I always had a feeling I’d win one day but now we actually have won, it hasn’t sunk in. I still can’t believe it! We didn’t get much sleep at all last night.

“We’ve been so stunned since we discovered we’d won $1.5 million – this prize money is life-changing for us,” the winning wife said.

“We’ll have to sit down now and think about what we want to do with our prize money but I can say that we will spoil the kids a little!

“We’ve always said that we’d love to see a big jackpot shared around so it’s cool to know there were fourteen winners in the weekend’s Superdraw.”

The winners have chosen to remain anonymous.

The division one winning ticket was purchased at Park Street News, Shop 7 and 8 in the NightOwl Centre, 45 Dawson Road in Gladstone.

Aaron Cameron is the owner of Park Street News and was happy to be celebrating another division one win at his outlet.

“This division one win comes just three months after we sold a $1.1 million winning ticket in Saturday Gold Lotto. It’s incredible to have two division one wins so close together!” Mr Cameron exclaimed.

“It’s created a lot of excitement in the outlet and also in the wider community. Gladstone has been going through some tough times lately so it’s great to have some positive news like this.

“It’s terrific to know that you’ve helped create a millionaire – how many businesses can say they’ve done that?

“With two wins so far this year, we’re now hoping for the hat-trick! Maybe we can sell a multi-million dollar winning ticket in tomorrow’s Oz Lotto draw!”
