Sunnybank Hills couple celebrate “jaw dropping” Saturday Gold Lotto win!

A Sunnybank Hills couple has returned home from holidays to discover they won division one in Saturday Gold Lotto more than a week earlier.
 
The shocked but ecstatic couple had been oblivious to their $463,590.27 prize from Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3725 on 1 April 2017 until Golden Casket made contact with them.
 
“It was quite a shock!  We’re all jaw dropping!” the man exclaimed.
 
“We didn’t take the ticket away with us so we didn’t check it during the week.  It’s been a welcome surprise to come home to!
 
“We might just head straight back on holidays again,” he joked.
 
The winning man explained that he and his wife had been playing the same numbers since 1983.
 
“We’ve been putting in the same numbers religiously each week for 34 years,” he said.
 
“We’ve had some small wins but nothing as big as this!”
 
Apart from helping their family with their prize, the winners are also contemplating buying a unit at the coast.
 
“We’re trying to think of something big to do with the money, rather than lots of little things.  We might buy a unit at the coast for our retirement.  That will certainly help for that one!” he exclaimed.
 
The winners purchased their marked 10-game entry from Sunnybank Hills News, Shop 18, Sunnybank Hills Shopping Centre, Cnr Calam & Compton Roads, Sunnybank Hills.
 
Sunnybank Hills News owner Luke Sheehy said the outlet was thrilled to have sold another division one winning entry.
 
“How exciting!  We last sold two division one winning entries in 2014 so it’s about time our customers had another win,” he said.
 
“Congratulations to the winners!  We hope they enjoy their windfall!”
 
Throughout Australia, there were nine entries that won a division one prize of $463,590.27 in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3725 on Saturday 1 April 2017.
