Teary Toowoomba woman overjoyed by $1 million Wednesday Gold Lotto win!
A Toowoomba woman who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis says her life has changed after today discovering she won $1 million in Wednesday’s Gold Lotto draw.
The emotional woman held one of the four division one winning entries nationally in Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3857, drawn Wednesday 3 April 2019.
Each winning entry took home a division one prize of $1,000,000.
When we broke the news to the elated woman this afternoon, she said the win would make her life easier.
“Is that a joke?” she questioned.
“Oh my gosh! This is amazing!
“I’m having my third cup of coffee for the day, but I certainly don’t need it now!
“I have goose bumps. I tell you what, it is a bit of a shock!
"When my daughter comes over I will tell her that I’m a millionaire. She’s going to be so happy.
“My goodness, I am a bit shaky!
“I am starting to cry. I just wish my husband was still here to enjoy this with me.”
When we asked how she planned to spend the win, the Queensland woman said she would donate to a charity that helps Multiple Sclerosis sufferers.
“I have MS, so this will make life easier and a lot more comfortable. It really will change my life,” she admitted.
“I will donate to a Multiple Sclerosis charity, so that I can help people like myself.
“Then I will get some renovations done on my house. I’ve needed to do a few things around the house for a while but haven’t been able to, so now I will.”
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning four-game marked entry at newsXpress Gatton, Shop 6, 6 Railway Street, Gatton.
newsXpress Gatton co-owner Darryl Spicer said he was thrilled the winner had come forward to claim her prize.
“We are thrilled to have sold a winning division one ticket! It’s been a while since we sold one, so we are really glad we have again.
“I am ecstatic that she’s come forward to claim her prize. She sounds like a very deserving winner.
“We are very happy for her and hope she truly enjoys her prize.
“It’s excellent news.”
