A hardworking Coolum couple in their 40s has started their Monday with the dream-come-true news that they are more than $669,000 richer after winning division one in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
 
The happy winners couldn’t contain their excitement and laughter when a Golden Casket official broke the news to them first thing this morning as they were getting ready for work.
 
The couple was one of six division one winning entries nationally, and one of two from Queensland, in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3741 on Saturday 27 May 2017.
 
The happy woman admitted receiving the winning call from Golden Casket had been a great way to start to her week.
 
“You’re joking! No way! Really?!  How much?” she exclaimed when told of her win.
 
“Oh my God! Can you say it one more time? I love it when you say that figure!
 
“That’s unbelievable! I can’t talk any more. I’ve got to go have a beer!
 
“This has been a nice early Monday morning phone call!”
 
The woman confessed the couple wanted to buy a new house with their windfall.
 
“It’s crazy!  We’ve had butterflies in our bellies about loan repayments, but it will be all good now!” she exclaimed.
 
“Life is good anyway, but this win just makes it even better!”

The couple, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their winning 18-game marked entry at NewsExtra Bli Bli, Shop 8, River Markets, 314-328 David Low Way, Bli Bli.

“We’ve been here since 2007 and this is the fourth time we’ve sold a division one winning ticket.  But it’s been a little while so it’s great to have another one!” she said.
 
“We’ve put some balloons and a sign up in the store.  With word of mouth, news of the win is flying around!”
