Leagues Club visit makes Gold Coast woman $1.8m richer

A quick stop at the local leagues club has turned a Gold Coast retiree’s ordinary Monday into a very rich one.

The woman dropped into Tugun Leagues Club on Monday morning and bought a Keno ticket using her favourite ten numbers.

She didn’t stick around to wait for her draw though, but did return later in the day to check her ticket.


That’s when she was hit the with the news that she had won $1,844,400.10.

“It’s so surreal, it really is,” the woman said.

“I feel like $1.8 million has just fallen from the sky!”

“I feel so weird. It hasn’t hit me yet. Honestly, it is unbelievable.

“It’s one of those things you dream of happening but you never actually think it will happen to you!”

The woman says she has yet to decide what to do with her winnings but will take her time to work it out.

But she plans to share some of it with her family.

Tugun Leagues Club duty manager Tia Gill said it was a winning moment she would never forget.

“She was so excited when she came in and checked her ticket,” she said.

“It was such a great feeling to see this prize go to a local.

“Congratulations to her. We wish her all the best.”
