Sunshine Coast quickly becoming lottery hotspot after $770,000 Saturday Gold Lotto win
A Sunshine Coast shopper has skipped into the working week with a pep in their step after discovering they’d won more than $770,000 in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
The Queensland player held one of the seven division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4399, drawn Saturday 16 September 2023 and took home $772,961.41.
It’s the second division one win on the Sunshine Coast in the past fortnight, leaving many coastal lottery players hoping they might be next.
However, how they plan to spend their windfall will forever remain a mystery as they have chosen to remain completely anonymous and celebrate in private.
The winning ticket was purchased at Noosa Office Choice, 107 Poinciana Avenue, Tewantin.
Noosa Office Choice owner Richard Rudledge said the team were over the moon at having sold a second division one winning entry in the space of three months.
“We’re amazed! It was only a couple of months ago in July that we sold another division one winning entry,” he said.
“Our customers have already started saying there must be something at play in our shop but we’re just happy that we’re playing a part in changing someone’s life.
“We’ll be celebrating for weeks to come!
“Congratulations to our wonderful winner and we hope this win is life-changing.”
While we don’t know how the Sunshine Coast’s latest lottery winner will celebrate their extraordinary prize, there’s no doubt their head was spinning when they realised they’d become a division one winner and were taking home more than $770,000.
Other division one winners regularly tell us they use their prizes to buy their dream home, help their nearest and dearest, and enjoy a long-overdue holiday.
However our winner chooses to use their prize, we hope they enjoy their winning feeling as long as they can!
