Inglewood woman revealed as region's Wednesday Gold Lotto winner!
Five days after her winning numbers were drawn, an Inglewood woman has been revealed as the winner of the $1 million prize from last week’s Wednesday Gold Lotto.
The retired woman was one of only two division one winners nationally in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3747 on Wednesday 14 March 2018. Each won a division one prize of $1 million.
When a Golden Casket official made contact with the winner today to deliver the dream-come-true news, she had no idea she was the region’s newest millionaire.
“That’s wonderful! Terrific,” she exclaimed.
“I had heard there had was a million-dollar win. I was wondering if that was me.
“When I went to pick up the phone just now I thought ‘oh, another nuisance call’.
“Tell you what - I do need it! It’s come at a good time.”
The regular player explained her marked System 8 entry consisted of numbers she had been playing for many years.
“We’ve just kept the same ones over the years. I kept saying we should change but then my husband said ‘no, no, no, we’ll win one day’,” she laughed.
“I’ll have to break the news to him and I’m sure we’ll both be very happy.”
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning marked System 8 entry at Sutto’s Inglewood Newsagency, 72 Albert Street, Inglewood.
Sutto’s Inglewood Newsagency owner Trish Christy said she was pleased the winner had been found.
“It’s fantastic news! It’s the first division one winning entry we’ve sold. It’s been busy in here as word had spread around town that we’ve had a win and everyone was wanting to know who it could be,” she said.
“It makes your job feel worthwhile to know you’ve helped someone become a millionaire.”
