Gold Coast mum nearly $2,000,000 richer

A Gold Coast woman has been blown away by the news that she won nearly $2,000,000 in Saturday’s Gold Lotto draw.

The Surfers Paradise mum – who wishes to remain anonymous – held one of the two division one winning entries in the country, which won her $1,971,752.32.

She said the first thing on her wish list was a trip to the dentist, as well as paying off her mortgage and travelling Europe.


A Golden Casket official broke the life-changing news to the woman this morning, who had no idea she’d started the week a millionaire.

“Oh my god,” she cried with happiness.

“Jesus. That’s pretty flippin’ good!

“Thank you so much. Thank you!

“I’m amazed. Oh my gosh.

“My husband is going to be blown away.

“Oh wow! I had no idea.

“This is feels like a dream! I really can’t believe it. This is just amazing.”

When asked how she was going to enjoy her life-changing windfall, the mum had plenty of ideas.

“I’m going to go to the dentist!” she laughed.

“We will definitely pay off the mortgage, that’s on the top of the list.

“Maybe my husband will retire. I think that will definitely happen.

“He’s always dreamt of riding a bicycle around Europe and I’d love to take the whole family on a cruise.

“This is truly life changing. It’s amazing. I can’t believe it!”
