“I’m going to buy a Tesla!”: Greenslopes woman feeling the need for speed after $1 million Saturday Gold Lotto windfall
A Greenslopes mother screamed so loud when she discovered her $1 million win in Saturday Gold Lotto that her daughter was worried the neighbours would hear.
The Brisbanite held one of the 10 division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4397, drawn Saturday 9 September 2023. Each division one entry pocketed $1,000,000.00.
The winning woman admitted she hadn’t slept a wink for more than two nights since discovering her newfound fortune on Saturday.
“I haven’t slept for two nights! I’ve just been sitting by the phone waiting for this call and confirmation that it’s real,” she exclaimed.
“It’s always been a dream of mine, but I’ve just sat back and left it in fate’s hands.
“Now I can dream. I screamed my lungs out when I saw I’d won, and my daughter told me to stop in case the neighbours thought something was wrong!
“I’m going to buy a Tesla! I can’t wait.
“It’s been my dream car forever and now I can’t stop thinking about it.
“It’s such a blessing. We’ll also pay off some of our mortgage and put some away for the future. We certainly don’t want to blow it all!
“This is incredible!”
