A Goondiwindi woman in her mid-twenties says her life has changed forever, after winning division one in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto.
The young woman held one of six division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3915, drawn Saturday 26 January 2018. Each winner takes home a division one prize of $678,118.79.
Confirming her win with a Golden Casket official five days after the draw, the woman explained how she discovered she had won division one.
“I realised late on Saturday night,” she explained.
“I scanned the ticket on my phone. I saw the amount come up but I obviously couldn’t believe it!
“I had to scan the ticket another four times to be sure.
“All I could scream is ‘mum, mum, I’ve won the Lotto!’
“Mum wouldn’t even listen to me but then dad heard me screaming and jumped out of bed and he scanned the ticket twice.
“Then we realised it was true, I’d won Gold Lotto!”
The young woman revealed from that moment she knew her life had changed forever.
“I’m going to build a house out at Goondiwindi, buy a car and pay off my parent’s mortgage!” she exclaimed.
“That’s the plan!”
“I’ll keep working, I absolutely love my job.
“But I’ll be able to set myself up for the rest of my life.
“I won’t have to borrow money to build a house, I’ll never have a mortgage!
“This has changed my life!”
The winning entry was purchased from Bishops Goondiwindi, 70 Marshall Street, Goondiwindi, which just celebrated 50 years of helping locals’ lottery dreams come true, who seem to be on a winning streak after they sold a division one ticket back in June last year.
The winning numbers were: 36, 18, 8, 19, 38 and 42, while the supplementary numbers were 39 and 4.
