Two Burleigh residents have had the best start to their week after discovering they scored more than $450,000 in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.

The Gold Coast players each held one of the 12 division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4295, drawn Saturday 13 September 2022. Their total division one prize is $451,772.22.

Both of the division one winning entries were unregistered, which means we had no way of contacting the individual ticketholders and had to wait for them to come forward.

Holiday hullabaloo for Burleigh Waters couple with $450,000 Gold Lotto win

Just when a Burleigh Waters couple thought their lavish holiday away couldn’t get any better, their family welcomed an exhilarating $450,000 win in Saturday Gold Lotto.

The Queenslanders admitted they checked their ticket on Sunday morning but decided to have some time to themselves to absorb the winning moment while they’ve been away on holiday.

“I’m shaking like a leaf!” the winning woman admitted when speaking with an official from The Lott.

“I can’t believe it. It’s a dream come true.

“It’s a great start to our holiday away from home!

“We decided to check our ticket on Sunday, and we couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw the winning numbers appear.

“We thought to ourselves, ‘Is it real? Is it true?’

“We told our daughters straight away, and they took a photo of the original winning ticket for us while we’re not home so we could ring The Lott head office.

“We’ve had the past two days to think about it and process it all!

“It’s actually a ticket shared amongst us and our daughters. We’re so happy to have won together as a family!”

When asked how they planned to enjoy their bounty, the merry mother revealed they would prioritise their daughters and help them with buying a new house.

“We would love to assist our daughters with purchasing new homes for their families. It’s been tough with inflation and this will really go a long way,” she shared.

“We’ll pop open a bottle of champagne when we return home!”

Their division one winning entry was purchased at Treetops Plaza News, Shop 5 7 Classic Way, Burleigh Waters.
