A Gold Coast woman has confessed she still gets goosebumps thinking about how she is now more than $670,000 richer after winning division one in Saturday’s Gold Lotto draw.
The woman, from Varsity Lakes, was one of six people across Australia who took home a whopping $672,883.61 after scoring the division one prize.
When a Golden Casket official made contact with the winner this morning, she admitted she had been standing by the phone waiting to confirm the life-changing news.

“Wow! Goose bumps! Yahoo,” she exclaimed.
“I found out yesterday morning! I went to the computer and typed in the numbers – I couldn’t believe what I was looking at.
“I was thinking ‘I hope I won $20, that would be great’. So it was very surprising!
“It’s a bit overwhelming!”
The woman, aged in her 50s, declared she knew exactly show she would spend her Gold Lotto windfall.
“No more mortgage! That will be great,” she said.
She also plans to treat her family, who are at the top of her Lotto List, with a holiday.
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her 12-game QuickPick entry at NewsXpress Treetops Plaza in Burleigh Waters.
