$1.3 million Saturday Gold Lotto win sends Toowoomba region man's heart racing

A hardworking Toowoomba region man has confessed his heart has been “jumping all around the countryside” since he discovered he was the only Queensland division one winner in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
 
The happy man was one of three division one winners nationally from Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3745 on Saturday 10 June 2017, with each taking home a division one prize of $1,331,103.75.
 
Speaking to a Golden Casket official this morning to confirm his prize, the unregistered player admitted he had initially forgotten all about his entry in the draw, but finally remembered to check it yesterday.
 
“It’s just awesome!” the man exclaimed.
 
“It’s unreal! I couldn’t sleep last night. Oh my God!
 
“I’ll put my heart back in its place now. It’s been jumping around all over the countryside!”
 
The happy man will use his windfall of more than $1.3 million to plan for his retirement, help his family, and fulfil his long-held dream of travelling around Australia.
 
“It’s worked out really well,” the emotional man said.
 
“It’s going to relieve a lot of financial pressure and it will be great just not having to worry about money.
 
“I can look forward to having a retirement now!”
 
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 50-game QuickPick entry at Oakey Newsagency, 103 Campbell Street, Oakey.
 
Oakey Newsagency owner Sandra Pott said she was thrilled the winner had come forward to claim their prize.
 
“We’re stoked to sell another division one winning ticket!  We’re just over the moon!”  She exclaimed.
 
“We last sold a division one winning ticket about two years ago so it’s great to see another one of our customers win the big one!”
 
The six winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3745 on Saturday 10 June 2017 were 14, 24, 44, 22, 12 and 20.  The supplementary numbers were 32 and 6.
 
Across Australia, there were three division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3745 – one in Queensland and two in Victoria.
