Hardworking Bayside dad wins Saturday Gold Lotto division one... again!

A hardworking dad from Brisbane’s bayside is looking forward to upgrading his house and car, and spending more time with his young family after winning more than $2.625 million in Saturday Gold Lotto!
The happy winner confessed it was his second division one Gold Lotto win, having won a smaller top prize almost two decades ago.
His entry was one of eight division one winners nationally, but the only Queensland winner, in Saturday’s $21 Million Superdaw, draw 3737 on 13 May 2017.  Each won a division one prize of $2,625,000.
Speaking to a Golden Casket official this morning to confirm his prize, the man admitted he couldn’t believe his luck at winning division one in Gold Lotto twice.
“Thank you very much!  That’s sensational!  I do enjoy these phone calls!” he exclaimed.
“I happened to check my ticket yesterday morning and I couldn’t believe it.  I had to get my wife to check it.  I said ‘this doesn’t look right, there’s something not right here’.
“I’ve won division one before.  It was many years ago and I shared it with about 11 other winners on a Saturday so the prize was quite a lot less than this one! 
“But the odds of winning division one twice would be pretty slim I wouldn’t have thought!”
The man couldn’t pinpoint what his secret to division one success was, but he said the win had come at a “perfect” time for his family.
“I did try my magic numbers for a few years and didn’t win, so I just went with QuickPicks and that’s done the trick both times now,” he explained.
“This couldn’t have worked out at a better time.  It’s been a bit of tough year for my family but this will sort us out for a quite a while now.  It’s sensational.
“We’ll be upgrading the house and the car for the family and I’ll be able to spend more time with my family.”
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 36-game QuickPick entry online via the Lott – Australia’s official lotteries.
The six winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3737 on Saturday 13 May 2017 were 21, 1, 40, 30, 16 and 35.  The supplementary numbers were 7 and 2.
The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 361 so far this financial year, including 87 won by Golden Casket customers.
