$1 million Monday Gold Lotto win opens the door for Taigum family's first home!
A hardworking Taigum mum has begun shopping for her family’s first home after realising she is now a millionaire following last night’s Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw.
The woman was one of four division one winners nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3692 on Monday 4 September 2017, including two from Queensland, one from South Australia and one from Western Australia.
Speaking to a Golden Casket official this morning, the woman admitted she had been happily “freaking out” since she checked her entry at home immediately after the draw.
“We haven’t slept! I tried! I just couldn’t. I was freaking out!” the jubilant woman exclaimed. “We checked it online. We saw we had five numbers and then we had six numbers. I thought ‘you’re joking!’.
The winning mum said she knew exactly what she’d do with her new millionaire status. “We’ve worked hard but haven’t been able to get anywhere. We’ve been renting for decades and have never been able to save for a house deposit. So we’ll definitely buy a house!” she said without hesitation.
The happy winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her 24-game QuickPick from Taigum Lotto & Cignell, 320 Roghan Road, Taigum.
It’s been a winning year for Taigum Lotto & Cignell – earlier this year it sold an Instant Scratch-Its ticket that won a customer one of the top prizes of $250,000, while in July it sold the 1st Prize winning entry in a Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw that landed one customers $200,000.
Taigum Lotto & Cignell owner Nilesh Patel said the latest win confirmed their outlet was a “lucky” one. “It’s been a great year for our customers. In January we sold a top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket, then a winning Lucky Lotteries entry, and now one of our customers is a millionaire!” he said. “It feels very good that our customers are winning.
“We opened in this location about three years ago and we feel this has been a lucky location for us! Hopefully many more wins to come!”
