Maryborough woman’s mind blown over mortgage-busting Saturday Gold Lotto win
A Maryborough woman is thanking a spur-of-the-moment decision to grab a Saturday Gold Lotto entry for her $900,000 windfall.
The Queenslander held one of the 11 division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4327, drawn Saturday 7 January 2023. Each division one winning entry scored $909,090.91.
When we made contact with her to confirm her prize, the woman revealed she’d been eagerly awaiting the call.
“I just can’t believe it’s real! I’ve been waiting for this call.
“I was just opening the app and just looking at the ticket all day yesterday.
“I checked my ticket around 6am on Sunday morning when I was still in bed. I was definitely awake after that!
“I’ve been waiting for the shock to wear off!
“I was buying a ticket for Tuesday, but while I was there, I thought I’d get one for this draw. I’m glad I did! I wasn’t going to, but I thought, ‘Bugger it! Why not? You’ve got to be in it to win it!’.
“I’m just mind-blown at the moment. I’ve been pacing around the house, wearing out the carpet!”
The winning woman revealed the prize would make a welcomed dent in her house mortgage.
“It’s definitely going to be a happy new year,” she declared.
