A Helensvale woman says she’s always hoped and dreamt of one day winning the lottery and on the weekend that dream finally came true. 

The Gold Coast retiree held one of the seven division one winning entries across the country in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4095 on Saturday 17 October 2020. Each entry won a division one prize of $928,717.17. 

Sharing her excitement with us this morning, the woman explained it had been a weekend to remember. 

“Oh god,” she laughed. 

“Thank you. Thank you so much! 

“It’s just starting to sink in. 

“We checked the ticket yesterday at the newsagency. We couldn’t believe it. 

“We’ve been playing for such a long time, so to have a win like this is unreal. 

“You hope and you dream but you never really think it will happen to you!” 

When asked how she thought she might enjoy her division one windfall, the Gold Coast woman said it had arrived at a great time. 

“We’re both retired so we will certainly be able to enjoy this throughout our retirement,” she explained. 

“My husband has a few projects in mind that he’s finally going to get done! 

“We can’t wait!” 

The life-changing entry was purchased at Golden Lucky News, Shop 1040 Westfield Helensvale, 1-29 Millaroo Drive, Helensvale. 

Golden Lucky News manager Lin Zhou said she hoped the prize would change their customer’s life in a big way. 

“It’s great to see another one of our customers win division one,” she said. 

Congratulations to them! 

“This is the second division one winning entry we’ve sold in three years. “

We hope our winner really enjoys their prize.”
