A Mackay woman is thanking a last-minute decision to grab an entry into the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw for her $1.5 million win.

The Queensland winner 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.

“I looked at my ticket, and I was like, ‘No!’,” she explained when talking with us.

“It’s very surreal.

“Now I’m crying. It’s just brought so much relief. It’s a blessing.

“I’m just speechless.

“I only bought the ticket at the last minute – just before the draw’s close on Saturday night. I thought I already had an entry into the draw but then I realised I hadn’t.

“I don’t play very often – just the big draws. But I’m glad I bought this entry!

“This just makes such a difference.

“There’s things I’ve wanted to do, some plans for the future, and now they can finally happen.”

Her winning System 8 QuickPick entry was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
