A young Robina woman has had a birthday to remember after discovering she is now a millionaire after winning division one in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3696 on 18 September 2017. 

The thrilled winner won the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million as well as other divisional prizes, bolstering her total win to $1,002,555.70. 

Remarkably, not only did the woman win on her birthday, but she also used her birthdate as one of the numbers on her marked System 7 entry. 

When a Golden Casket official phoned to confirm the win, the woman had no idea she had won and admitted she was too emotional to talk. “Are you joking? Oh my god, I can’t talk,” the woman exclaimed through tears. “Oh shivers, thank you so much! We’ve just had such a rough time lately, you have no idea how much this will help. “Happy birthday to me!”

When asked how she planned to spend her birthday windfall, the woman immediately declared she would help her family. “I’ll be buying a house for me and my mum! She’s pushed herself to put a roof over our heads and now she doesn’t have to go back to work.” 

The regular player confessed she doesn’t check the Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto results, so the win had come as a huge shock. “I play regularly using my birthdate and the birthdates of mum and friends,” the happy woman explained. “I don’t even check the results any more, I just buy them and file them away in my emails. 

“It’s always a bit of a hit and a miss when I play, but now I’ve won!” 

The happy winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her marked System 7 entry from thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.  

The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3696 on Monday 18 September 2017 were 13, 43, 9, 14, 4 and 18. The supplementary numbers were 2 and 37. 

Across Australia there were two division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3696 – one from Victoria and one from Queensland. 

Last financial year, there were 82 division one winning Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto entries across the Lott’s jurisdictions, which collectively won more than $80 million. 

The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 307 so far this calendar year, including 82 won by Golden Casket customers.
