Chook count delivers Gold Lotto division one win to Warner family
A cluck of chickens roaming the backyard has helped a Warner family land a division one win in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
The Moreton Bay family held one of the 27 division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Gold Lotto’s $20 Million Superdraw, draw 4061 on 20 June 2020. Each entry won a division one prize of $740,740.75.
Speaking to us this morning, the winning mum confessed she hadn’t slept much since the exciting revelation.
“I’m so sleep deprived,” she laughed.
“We found out early on Sunday morning and I don’t think we’ve slept since.
“I keep thinking this isn’t real, but hearing you say it just now makes it real. It makes me teary.
“This is going to make a huge difference to us. I feel very blessed.
“We’re going to buy a house. Nothing crazy, just our first family home. Oh my goodness, this has literally changed our lives.
“We marked the entry with numbers like birthdays, lucky numbers and special numbers. We even put down the number of chickens we have and other things around the house.
“These were actually our Powerball numbers and it was only on Saturday I thought I should use some of them for our Saturday Gold Lotto entry.
“I’m so glad I did! This is really going to set our family up for the future.”
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning marked 12-game entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
