Young Logan man bowled over by Saturday Gold Lotto division one win!
A young Logan man in his 30s has admitted to feeling overwhelmed by the revelation he won division one in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
The man had no idea about his good fortune until a Golden Casket official contacted him this morning.
He was one of the six division one winners nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3767 on Saturday 26 August 2017. He takes home a division one prize of $684,957.29.
“That’s crazy! That’s insane!” the winner exclaimed when his win was confirmed.
“I had no idea! I’ve been using the same numbers for a while now. I think I just chose them at random at the time. They’ve really worked out!
“I can’t tell you – it couldn’t have happened at a better time. It’s just awesome.”
The happy man explained he has been playing Saturday Gold Lotto for a few years, scoring only minor wins along the way.
“At the moment, off the top of my head, I have no idea how I’ll use the money. It’s just wonderful news. It just hasn’t sunk in yet, but it’ll help set me up for the future.”
The man purchased his marked 12-game entry online from thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3767 on Saturday 26 August 2017 were 45, 20, 11, 38, 27 and 15 while the supplementary numbers were 18 and 42.
