A young Gold Coast woman has had a birthday to remember after discovering she is now a millionaire after winning division one in Monday’s Gold Lotto.
When a Golden Casket official phoned to confirm the win, the woman had no idea she had won and admitted she was too emotional to talk.
“Are you joking? Oh my god, I can’t talk,” the woman, who is from Robina, exclaimed through tears.

“Oh shivers, thank you so much! We’ve just had such a rough time lately, you have no idea how much this will help.
“Happy birthday to me!”
When asked how she planned to spend her birthday windfall, the woman immediately declared she would help her family.
“I’ll be buying a house for me and my mum! She’s pushed herself to put a roof over our heads and now she doesn’t have to go back to work.”
Remarkably, not only did the woman win on her birthday, but she also used her birthdate as one of the numbers on her marked System 7 entry, which she purchased online from thelott.com.
