A Cairns grandmother is planning on spending plenty more time spoiling her grandchildren after winning division one in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw. 

The Far North Queensland resident held one of the 10 division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4213, drawn Saturday 4 December 2021. Each division one winning entry took home $587,281.03. 

Confirming her prize with us this morning, the woman explained the excitement had kept her awake all weekend. 

“I’ve been in shock, and I just keep looking at my account!” she laughed. 

“I haven’t slept since I checked the ticket on Saturday night. 

“I am elated. I honestly can’t believe it. 

“My husband and I have worked all our lives, so to have a big win like this is life-changing. 

“It is honestly so incredible.” 

With her division one lottery fortune about to hit her bank account, the Cairns grandma knew exactly what she’d be doing with her win. 

“We will pay the mortgage off before Christmas!” she exclaimed. 

“Then we will help our children, which will be such an amazing feeling. 

“We will be able to relax  and spend more time with the grandchildren.” 

Her winning 24-game QuickPick entry was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
