A jovial group of 10 Strathpine shoppers have had their lives changed after their syndicate scored division one in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
Each lucky winner will take home roughly $70,000 each after their syndicate won a total of $73,601.87 in prize money.
Shares into the winning syndicate were sold at Nextra Strathpine, Shop 36 & 37 Westfield Strathpine, 295 Gympie Road, Strathpine.
The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4269 on 19 June 2022 were 37, 11, 27, 1, 22, 34, while the supplementary numbers were 44 and 43.
However, as some of the syndicate members were unregistered, they may have yet to discover their division one winning news. Players are being urged to check their tickets today.
Nextra Strathpine owners Deb and Emmett Bailey say they are thrilled one of the store’s regular weekly syndicates had hit it big.
“This is absolutely incredible, and we’re so excited,” Deb says.
“The syndicate is made up of games for each night of the week and there are still four more draws to come so more chances for the syndicate to win another prize!
“Our last division one winning entry was sold right before COVID hit. We were just saying this week that we would love to see one of our syndicates win a major prize.
“Our team are so excited to share in the winners’ great news and are so happy we’ve been able to make some of our customers’ dreams come true.
“This will be great for the Moreton Bay community! Congratulations and all the best to our winners.”
