Jumping for joy after $2 million Saturday Gold Lotto win!

A woman from the Moreton Bay Region couldn’t help but giggle every time she was reminded by a Golden Casket official that she’s now a multi-millionaire after winning a staggering $2 million first division prize in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.

The winner in her 40s said she was overwhelmed when she looked at the winning numbers and recognised some of her favourite numbers straight away!

“My husband and I were out on Saturday night and for some reason I decided to get out my phone and look up the Saturday Gold Lotto numbers on the Golden Casket website,” the excited winner explained.

“I’ve played my favourite numbers for 26 years so I know them really well and when I looked at the results, I knew I had five winning numbers and I was pretty sure I had all six.

“I wanted to get home so I could get my ticket and check it. Once I looked at it, I shouted to my husband, ‘Check this – I think we’ve won Gold Lotto!’

“After he looked at my ticket he said, ‘It can’t be. We couldn’t have won?’, so then we woke up our adult son and asked him to check it!

“When it finally sunk in that my ticket had won first division, my husband did a ‘Oh what a feeling’ leap in the air! I was a basket case and cried tears of happiness. As you can imagine, I didn’t get any sleep on Saturday night!

“We took all our family out for lunch on Sunday to celebrate! You always hear about people winning but you just never think one day it will be you!

“To win is amazing! I don’t think I’ll get used to being called a multi-millionaire,” the overjoyed winner giggled.

“We’re small business owners and it’s been a little quiet lately so this division one win has just taken all the stress away. We’ll now be able to take a much-needed and long overdue holiday and I’ve already been on the internet this morning looking at new cars!”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The winning System 8 marked entry was purchased at TSG Burpengary News, Shop 22 in Burpengary Plaza, 177 – 183 Station Road in Burpengary.

Prakash Balia is the owner of TSG Burpengary News and was excited to be celebrating a division one win.

“We’re all ecstatic!” Mr Balia exclaimed.

“This is absolutely wonderful. We opened the outlet in November last year and in eight months we’ve had a number of division two wins, we’ve also had a Winners Circle Card Bonus Draw win and now a first division win.

“We really feel like we’re on a winning roll and we’d really like to keep it going with another big win in this weekend’s $20 Million Superdraw.

“In the meantime, we’d like to congratulate our winning customer and wish them all the best for the future as a new multi-millionaire.”

Throughout Australia, there were two entries that won a first division prize of $2,049,462.85 in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw. Along with the winning entry from Burpengary, the other division one winning ticket was purchased in Tasmania.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3653 on Saturday 23 July 2016 were 7, 10, 15, 22, 32 and 4, with the supplementary numbers 6 and 38.
