A Sarina woman’s overwhelming feeling she’d just scored a big lottery win prompted her to check her Saturday Gold Lotto ticket and discover just that. 

The Queenslander held one of the eight division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4181, drawn Saturday 14 August 2021. Each division one winning entry took home $797,532.27. 

Confirming her life-changing prize with us, the winner explained she’d checked her ticket over the weekend. 

“Thank you, thank you,” she cried with happiness. 

“This is unreal. I’m still in shock. It certainly doesn’t feel real. 

“I had a feeling I had won something big, so I checked my ticket online and I couldn’t believe it. 

“I went into the store to get them to double-check it. 

“When they confirmed the news, I was shaking. It was such a shock. 

“I’ve been playing those numbers for years and years; they're special numbers, birthdays and anniversaries. 

“It’s amazing that they’ve been drawn.”

When asked how she thought she might enjoy her division one win, the generous mum thought of her children first. 

“I am going to help out my kids. It will be lovely,” she said. 

“Then I want to buy a caravan and travel around the country. 

“I’ll start with Queensland. It will be amazing!”
