Long-running Sunshine Coast syndicate scores $2.8 million Saturday Gold Lotto win
Ten Sunshine Coast shoppers are sure to be sporting winning smiles this week after their syndicate entry scored a multi-million dollar division one prize in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto Superdraw.
The store syndicate, called “Bream Creek”, held one of the seven division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3889 on 27 October 2018, scoring a division one prize of $2,857,142.86.
In addition to winning division one, the Kawana syndicate’s 10-game System 10 QuickPick entry also won division three 6 times, bolstering the syndicate’s total prize to $2,864,394.46.
Each member of the syndicate is set to receive a share worth $286,439.45.
The winning store syndicate entry was set up by Kawana News & Gifts, Shop 353, Kawana Shoppingworld, 119 Point Cartwright Road, Buddina.
Kawana News & Gifts owner Jono Milligan said his outlet had been running the “Bream Creek” syndicate for more than 30 years.
“It’s named after one of my favourite bottles of pinot noir from Tasmania. Hopefully the winners will be enjoying a few bottles of it with this win,” he said.
“Many of the syndicate members go into this each week. This syndicate has won division two before so it’s great to see it win division one.
"Some of the syndicate winners have already popped in and discovered the news.One didn’t know so it was a bit of a shock for him.
“It’s great to see another win in store. This is the second division one win we’ve had during the past eight years.”
No doubt Bream Creek will become a favourite drop amongst the winning syndicate members from now on.
