Brisbane bayside couple astounded by “amazingly awesome” $1.5 million Gold Lotto bounty
A couple from Brisbane’s bayside have declared their $1.5 million win in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto has made their month, their year and their life.
The Queensland couple held one of the 13 division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4307, drawn 29 October 2022. Each entry scored $1,538,461.54.
“It’s just surreal – the weirdest feeling in the world,” the winning husband exclaimed.
“I quickly looked at my ticket on Saturday night and I thought we’d won a couple of thousand.
“But then I went back and had a look and saw we’d got all the winning numbers.
“We were just walking around dazed after that. I just kept checking the app to make sure it was real.
“It’s amazingly awesome!
“I was supposed to get a ticket into the big Powerball draw last week, but I forgot. I was in a bit of trouble at home so thought I’d grab an entry into this draw.
“We’ll be helping our adult children get their mortgages. Otherwise, we’ll need a bit of time to strategise about what to do next. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
“You’ve made our month, our year, our life!”
The couple’s winning System 8 QuickPick entry was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
