Gold Lotto delivers million-dollar dream for Salisbury mother
A Salisbury mother who’d always told her husband she’d one day win a major lottery prize has become an overnight Gold Lotto millionaire.
The South-East Queensland resident held one of the five division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4203, drawn Monday 30 October 2021. Each division one winning entry scored $1,205,982.
When we contacted the winning woman this morning, she had no idea her life had changed forever.
“Oh my god! Oh my god! Wow!” she yelled.
“I’m shaking like a leaf. I’m going to cry. I can’t believe it. We all have these dreams, but you never know if it could happen.
“I’ve always said to my husband, ‘I’m going to win the lottery one day’. He always responded with, ‘You have more chance being struck by lightning than winning the lottery’. I’ve proved him wrong!
“He seriously won’t believe me when I call him. I might have to put my serious voice on. I’m in absolute shock.
“Surprisingly, I had a horrible weekend. I was in such a stressed mood. Maybe I had a premonition that something was going to happen.
“I’m currently on my way to work right now. I’m going to walk into work on cloud nine. It’s going to be so hard to concentrate today.
“I’m so grateful. This is exciting for my family and I.”
With over $1 million about to hit her bank account, the elated woman said she had a few things in mind for her prize.
“Our family has wanted to move house for a very long time. We always said, ‘We’ll just hang on’. We never thought it would be possible,” she shared.
“I’d love to go on a long-overdue holiday and visit my family in England. I haven’t seen them in seven years!
“I’m very close with my mother and cousin as well. I always told her that if I won Lotto, I’d help her.
“This is something definitely worth celebrating.”
The joyful winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning 12-game QuickPick entry from Lutwyche Nextra, Shop T3.06 Lutwyche City Shopping Centre, 543 Lutwyche Road, Lutwyche.
Lutwyche Nextra team member Amanda Danes said the team was excited to have helped change a customer’s life.
“We’re so excited to have sold another division one winning entry for 2021! We’ll be celebrating with balloons and streamers,” she said.
“We sold our last division one winning entry back in July, and one last year in June.
“The customers will be delighted to hear the news of a division one win. We needed a win for a very long time.
“We hope this prize helps the winner and their family through what has been such a difficult year. A big congratulations on behalf of all the team!”
