“The next thing I heard was him yelling and screaming from the other room that we’d won Gold Lotto!” his thrilled wife added.
“We were so excited so we decided to head out to celebrate winning first division! We didn’t get home again until 4 o’clock in the morning so we were pretty tired yesterday!
“We’re still stunned by our win so we’re not too sure what we’ll do with our windfall just yet. We’ll put it in the bank at this stage but we now know that retirement down the track will be a lot easier.”
The winners, aged in their 50’s have chosen to remain anonymous.
The division one winning System 9 marked entry was purchased from Paradise Point News, Shop 1, 11 Grice Avenue in Paradise Point.
Paradise Point News owners Peter and Kathy Chistlett were over the moon when they found out they’d sold another division one winning entry.
“We’re just so excited! This is the second time this year that we’ve sold a first division winning entry in Saturday Gold Lotto. Back in March, one of our customers won a $473,000 division one prize,” Mr Chislett said.
“We feel like we’re on a roll now and we really want it to continue, so we’re hoping to make it a hat-trick in 2015!
“Right now though we want to congratulate our latest division one winners and wish them all the best in the future as new multi-millionaires!”
