At least one Queenslander was a winner last night: Toowoomba has a new millionaire!
While the Maroons may not have been victorious last night, another Queenslander – a woman from Toowoomba – fared much better, winning division one in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw.
The unsuspecting woman received the surprise of her life this morning when a Golden Casket representative called with the news she was a newly-minted millionaire.
“Wow! That’s amazing!” she exclaimed.
“I’ve won some small prizes in the past, but nothing like this.
“I don’t begrudge anyone getting a little win. I hope they won’t begrudge me!
“Of course, I won’t be acting any different. I just look forward to not having to scrimp and save anymore.
“It also means I can now renovate my house!”
Toowoomba’s division one winning entry was one of three nationally in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3771 on Wednesday 6 June 2018. Each entry scored the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.
The excited winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning 12-game QuickPick entry from South Street Newsagency, 136A South Street, Toowoomba.
“I used to choose my own numbers, but decided a while ago that they’d gone stale,” the winner explained.
“It seems my switch to a QuickPick has paid off!”
South Street Newsagency owner Robert Reid said he was thrilled another one of his customers had won division one.
The outlet sold a division one winning store syndicate in a Saturday Lotto Superdraw in August last year.
“Every time we finish a store refurb, we sell a division one winning ticket!” he explained.
“It’s amazing! That’s now two division one prizes within the past 12 months!
“We’re absolutely stoked for our winner and want to say a massive congratulations.”
Mr Reid is now busy decorating his outlet in celebration.
The six winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3771 on Wednesday 6 June 2018 were 35, 21, 19, 8, 36 and 37, while the supplementary numbers were 2 and 15.
Across Australia, there were three division one winning entries – two from Queensland and one from New South Wales.
The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 172 so far this calendar year, including 38 won by Golden Casket customers.
