A Narangba woman has confessed she almost missed scoring $1 million in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw, but a good feeling prompted her to grab a ticket. 

The Queenslander held one of two division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 4389 on Wednesday 8 May 2024. She pocketed the division one prize of $1 million.

When we called to confirm the wondrous news, the gleeful woman revealed she hadn’t slept a wink.

“Thank you so much!” she cheered.

“I’m so tired. I got no sleep at all last night but for the best reason!

“It’s funny, actually, I always play Saturday Gold Lotto but never Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto.

“I won about $24 on my Saturday entry and had a good feeling so I decided to put one on for Wednesday’s draw.

“Because of that, my husband was a bit confused at first. I woke him up and said, ‘I’ve got something to tell you.’. He looked panicked, and I said, ‘Don’t worry, it’s good news, we won the Lotto!’.

“This entry was also a bit different because I normally do a QuickPick but this time I chose a few numbers – birthdays and things, then I closed my eyes and picked completely random for the rest.”

With $1 million about to boost her bank account, the Moreton Bay local couldn’t help but dream of how she’d be using it.

“Honestly, I’ve already spent it all in my head!” she laughed.

“Of course, we’ll use it towards the mortgage and share some with our older kids.

“We also have a family overseas holiday planned soon so I think that will be a lot nicer now!”

The winning marked 36-game entry was purchased from The Lott app – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
