The sun is shining on the Sunshine Coast today, especially for ten Cotton Tree lottery players who picked up a share of a division one winning syndicate in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw. 

The ten-member syndicate held one of the seven division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4159, drawn Saturday 29 May 2021. Each division one winning entry won $852,722.91. 

Each member of the syndicate scored a share worth $85,794.96. 

Shares into the division one winning entry were purchased at Cotton Tree News, 1/9 King Street, Maroochydore. 

Cotton Tree News employee Sarah Bruton explained the syndicate was aptly named “The Big One”. 

“We’re so happy for our 10 customers who had bought one of these entries,” she said. 

“This syndicate has been running for a long time and it’s not always the same 10 people who buy into it. 

“They are always a mixture of regular players and not regular players. Last year the syndicate won division two, so it was only a matter of time before it scored the big one. 

“The last time we sold a division one winning entry was back in 2016 and it’s never been claimed. 

“We still hope this winner will come forward one day!” 

Imagine starting the working week unaware you’re more than $85,000 richer!

We’ll be reaching out to the registered syndicate members, but for those who didn’t register their syndicate entry to a player card, we’ll be eagerly waiting for them to check their tickets and discover the winning news themselves.

If you purchased a syndicate entry at Cotton Tree News, then today would be a great day to check it! You can do this by popping in to any Golden Casket outlet, visiting, or by scanning your ticket with The Lott app.
