‘I’ll stop working immediately!’: Gold Coaster’s pledge after big lotto win

A Gold Coast woman is set to hand in her resignation and retire after winning a share in Saturday’s $20 million Gold Lotto draw.

The Nerang resident was one of 11 winners across the country, each taking home a cool $1,818,181.82.

The woman says she’s been on cloud nine after discovering on Sunday that she had a winning ticket.


“I couldn’t believe it. I had to run down to my son’s house and get him to double-check it.

“It couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s really wonderful!”

The lucky Gold Coaster has flagged some pretty big life changes following the win including paying off her mortgage and quitting her job.

“I’ll stop working immediately and finally be able to retire.

“I’ll be able to help the kids and grandchildren out. I am so, so grateful!”

The woman bought her winning entry at News Extra in Nerang Mall.
