Six numbers - that is all it takes to win big in Gold Lotto and that’s just what happened for three mates from Highfields in Saturday night’s Gold Lotto draw #3833.
The entry was one of seven division one winning entries across the nation with each winning ticket scoring their owner $580,653.79.
Speaking to a Golden Casket official after the win the syndicate’s leader said:
"I was dumbfounded. I was watching the football and thought I better check our numbers. I started ticking them off and then I said to the missus 'can you check this?'
"Then I had to ring everyone up. We're all over the moon.
"It's great, I was nervous as anything. I couldn't sleep Saturday night and I had about an hour's sleep."
"We've been playing those numbers for 22 years. We've each got a few things we're going to do with our share," he said.
"It's beautiful. I didn't think it would ever happen."
The friends' winning marked 12-game entry was purchased at Highfields News at Highfields Village Shopping Centre.
The numbers were 38, 17, 7, 18, 9 and 10, the supplementary numbers were 20 and 35.
