Maroochydore man’s Super 66 division one birthday surprise!
A Maroochydore man has almost 80,000 extra reasons to celebrate his birthday today after discovering he won division one in last weekend’s Super 66 draw.
The happy and surprised man held the only division one winning entry in Super 66 draw 3841 on Saturday 12 May 2018. He takes home the division one prize of $79,060.35.
As the entry was not registered to a Winners Circle card, Golden Casket had no way to contact the ticketholder with the winning news.
The man discovered his good fortune today – just as he was celebrating his birthday. He also admitted he had been so busy last weekend he almost didn’t end up buying his winning entry.
“Cool! Laughin’,” the man exclaimed when his win was confirmed by a Golden Casket official.
“We always register our entries, but last weekend we were ducking into town on Saturday and the wife said ‘don’t worry about putting it in’, but I said ‘no, I got to put it on’.
“It’s meant to be! It’s my birthday today! It’s great stuff.”
The regular Super 66 player joked he enjoyed playing the game for one special reason.
“I like saying to the people in the outlet ‘I’ll have a Super QuickPick with two Super 66 please’ because of all the Ss,” he laughed.
Apart from celebrating his birthday, the man said he would also be happily planning how he might use his Super 66 windfall.
The man, who wants to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry at Maroochydore Newsagency, Shop 45, Big Top Shopping Centre, Duporth Avenue, Maroochydore.
Maroochydore Newsagency owner Ian Busch said the Super 66 division one win took his outlet’s division one tally to 12.
“The winner was pretty excited when he checked his ticket! What a great way to celebrate your birthday,” he said.
“It’s always good to sell a division one winning entry and we hope to do it again soon.”
The winning numbers in Super 66 draw 3841 on Saturday 12 May 2018 were 0, 4, 5, 1, 5 and 8.
Super 66 is an add-on game played with Gold Lotto, Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto, Oz Lotto, Powerball and The Pools.
The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 371 so far this financial year, including 88 won by Golden Casket customers.
