An Albany Creek woman has thanked her husband for the best birthday present she’s ever received - a Saturday Gold Lotto ticket worth more than $500,000.
The Moreton Bay Region resident held one of the 10 division one winning entries across the country in Saturday’s draw. Each entry won $511,318.20.
Confirming her win today with an official from The Lott, the woman says she had just checked her ticket on the app.
“I normally go to the newsagency to check my tickets a little later in the week, but for some reason, I thought I’d better check it just now,” she says.
“This is mind-blowing. It’s unbelievable. The ticket was a birthday present from my husband. It’s the best birthday present he’s ever got me and one I will never forget!"
When asked how she planned to enjoy her Saturday Gold Lotto fortune, the happy woman says she has a few ideas.
“We’ve got some work to do around the house, so this will definitely be going towards that,” she said.
“My husband and I are both still working, but when we can travel again, we will certainly be doing that. It’s going to be a big help!”
The winning entry was bought at Vapecloud News, Shop 8A, 1374 Gympie Road, Aspley.
Owner Jay Kumar said the win was a landmark for the outlet.
“This is the first division one winning entry we’ve sold,” he said. “It’s so exciting, our entire team is so happy.
“We certainly hope this is the beginning of many more big wins for our customers.
Congratulations to our winner!”
