Mackay woman’s last-minute tickets yields $1.5 million Saturday Gold Lotto win
A Mackay woman is thanking a last-minute decision to grab an entry into the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw for her $1.5 million win.
The Queensland winner held one of the 13 division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4307, drawn 29 October 2022. Each entry scored $1,538,461.54.
“I looked at my ticket, and I was like, ‘No!’,” she explained when talking with us.
“It’s very surreal.
“Now I’m crying. It’s just brought so much relief. It’s a blessing.
“I’m just speechless.
“I only bought the ticket at the last minute – just before the draw’s close on Saturday night. I thought I already had an entry into the draw but then I realised I hadn’t.
“I don’t play very often – just the big draws. But I’m glad I bought this entry!
“This just makes such a difference.
“There’s things I’ve wanted to do, some plans for the future, and now they can finally happen.”
Her winning System 8 QuickPick entry was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
