A QUEENSLANDER is today $2.77 million richer after a remarkable winning run over two days this week.
A woman from the Caboolture region, north of Brisbane, won $2.77 million on last night’s Gold Lotto.
The woman, who has not been named, won division one four times on a single Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto entry.
It followed her $17,000 win in a lower divisional prizes on Monday.
“I’ve been waiting to hear from someone from Golden Casket all my life!” she told a Golden Casket official who rang with the news.
“It’s just unreal! I’ve had two wins in the past few weeks and now last night I won $2.77 million. It’s crazy!
“It’s like you get your lucky time in your life and it all happens. That’s how it feels to me.
“It’s been a bit of a roll of wins lately. I thought my luck may have run out but it’s just got better. This is the icing on top of the cake!”
The winning entry was bought online at thelott.com and consisted of four marked System 12 games of identical numbers.
Apart from winning division one four times — once for each marked game on her entry — she also won division 3 144 times and division 4 900 times. In total, her system entry won 1048 times across all divisions!
“All we want to do is play golf a couple of times a week and kick back,” she said.
“We’ve worked hard our whole lives. It’s time to put the boots down. It’s just amazing.
“It’s just unreal! This is more than I can even get my head around.
“I could not sleep last night! This means we don’t have to worry about paying bills and we can help our family out. It’s just beautiful!”
It’s the second time in three weeks a Caboolture entry has won division one. A Caboolture couple won $792,331.85 with their entry in Saturday Gold Lotto on April 29.
