Rockhampton couple shocked and shaken following $1 million Saturday Gold Lotto windfall
A Rockhampton couple have their sights set on retirement and a few overseas adventures after realising they’d bagged more than $1 million in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
The elated winners held one of the five division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4393, drawn Saturday 26 August 2023 and took home a total division one prize of $1,033,085.50.
“We were a bit slow checking our entry but when my partner decided to take a look, I just remember her suddenly not being able to speak,” the winning man laughed when we confirmed their windfall.
“She showed me the win and I just said, ‘no, no, no, this doesn’t happen to me’.
“Yet here we are and we’re still struggling to wrap our heads around it.
“Once we do, we can both look forward to retiring as soon as possible and focus on really enjoying our lives.
“We’d love to travel overseas and plan on seeing a number of countries we’ve never visited.
“It’s certainly going to open up a lot of doors for us that otherwise would have remained shut and we’re so grateful for that.
“You never expect something like this to happen to you so when it does it’s just incredible.
“Thank you so much.”
Their winning entry was purchased at Glenmore News¸ Shop 2, 309-315 Farm Street, North Rockhampton.
