Saturday Gold Lotto lightning strikes twice: Stafford couple celebrate second division one win!

A retired Stafford couple is today celebrating their good fortune after the revelation they had won division one in Saturday Gold Lotto for the second time less than four years.
 
The couple was one of 13 division one winners nationally who each took home a first division prize of $329,266.60 in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3757 on 22 July 2017. 
 
But it was a case of déjà vu for the winning couple, who confessed they also won a division one prize of more than $500,000 in 2014.
 
“That’s unreal!” the winning man exclaimed when his Gold Lotto win was confirmed this morning.
 
“I checked my ticket yesterday and I was sitting there marking the numbers.  I checked it again and again. I said to my wife ‘we’ve got six numbers in the Lotto!’.
 
“She was over the moon!” 
 
The couple don’t know what the secret to their Gold Lotto success is, with the latest win coming from the random numbers on a 24-game QuickPick entry, but they plan to use their new division one windfall to enjoy their well-earned retirement.
 
 “I worked hard all my life and it was all manual work.  Now we can relax and enjoy our retirement,” the man explained.
 
“We’ll share it with our family, buy a new car, and just and try and keep breathing!
 
“Money isn’t everything, but it can make you smile a bit wider!"

The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their 24-game QuickPick entry from West Stafford News, 611 Stafford Road, Stafford.
 
It’s the second time in less than 12 months West Stafford News has sold a division one winning entry.  In October 2016, one of their customers walked away with more than $1.9 million from a Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
 
The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3757 on Saturday 22 July 2017 were 32, 42, 27, 44, 11 and 22, while the supplementary numbers were 7 and 39.
 
Across Australia there were 13 division one winning entries for Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3757, including three from Queensland, two from New South Wales, six from Victoria and three from Western Australia.
 
Last financial year, there were 275 division one winning Saturday Gold Lotto entries across the Lott’s jurisdictions, which collectively won more than $283 million. 
 
The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 220 so far this calendar year, including 61 won by Golden Casket customers.
