$1.9 million winning Superdraw ticket discovered while on holidays!

While most Gold Lotto winners say they plan to take a well-deserved holiday after winning first division, a Brisbane family reversed the process by holidaying first then winning division one!

The family were on a spring holiday away from their hometown of Brisbane when they discovered their entry in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto $21 Million Superdraw had won a first division prize of $1,909,090.91.

“We’re in shock! To be honest we just want to get home now so we can start sharing our prize money with family so everyone benefits from our win!” the overjoyed wife declared.

“It was about 9pm last night and my husband was on the internet and saw that Newmarket News and Gifts had sold a division one winning entry. He turned to me and asked if I’d bought a Saturday Gold Lotto ticket at that newsagency.

“After I said that I had, I grabbed the ticket out of my purse and he read out the winning numbers. I couldn’t believe it when I saw that my ticket had all six of them!

“We were in shock! We were shaking and couldn’t believe it! We did laugh a lot last night and I cried a bit. It’s quite funny because for the last few weeks I just had this feeling that I was going to win Gold Lotto!

“While we plan to share our windfall with family, we’ll use the rest to pay off our mortgage.”

The division one winning couple have chosen to remain anonymous. The division one winning 36-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Newmarket News and Gifts, Shop 118, 400 Newmarket Road in Newmarket.

Throughout Australia, there were eleven entries that won a first division prize of $1,909,090.91 in the weekend’s $21 Million Superdraw.

Along with the winning entry from Newmarket, there was another Queensland winning entry sold on the Sunshine Coast, four division one winning entries were purchased in New South Wales and five in Victoria.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3665 on Saturday 3 September 2016 were 40, 32, 36, 23, 28 and 7, with the supplementary numbers 39 and 41. The weekend’s winners take the Lott’s division one winning tally to 75 so far this financial year, including 18 in Golden Casket.
