Young Goondiwindi couple’s favourite numbers score them a multi-million-dollar prize
Just months after they started playing Saturday Gold Lotto with their favourite numbers, a young Goondiwindi couple are now reeling from their multi-million-dollar win.
The regional Queenslanders held one of the seven division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4187, drawn Saturday 4 September 2021. Each division one winning entry took home $2,857,142.86.
Confirming their win with us this morning, the pair explained they checked their ticket late last night.
“Thank you,” they laughed.
“We’ve been trying to contain ourselves since we checked the ticket last night.
“We didn’t want to get too excited until the news was confirmed. But I suppose we can now!
“It certainly hasn’t sunk in. We both feel so overwhelmed.
“We only recently decided to start playing a couple of months ago. We marked our numbers with our birthdays.
“This is so surreal!”
With a multi-million-dollar prize about to hit their bank account, the duo said there’s no doubt things were about to change in an incredible way.
“It’s going to be awesome,” they declared.
“We’re not too sure at the moment and with Covid. We’re a little bit stuck but we will certainly start travelling as soon as we can.
“It’s going to really set us up. It will be amazing.”
Their life-changing marked 12-game entry was purchased online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
