A Deception Bay mum now believes dreams really do come true after discovering her $1.7 million win in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
The Brisbane resident held one of the three division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4317, drawn Saturday22. Each entry takes home $1,711,673.77.
“I’ve been playing since Saturday Gold Lotto first began. I can’t believe I’ve won division one!” she said.
“It really does happen! I’ll be able to pay off my mortgage! I’ll be debt free. What an incredible feeling.
“Most importantly, I’ll be able to help my family. For this to happen just before Christmas is the best present I could have possibly asked for.
“I was only recently talking to a friend about how I’d react if I ever won a prize like this.
“Now that it’s happened, I just feel numb! Thank you so much!”
'Over the moon'
Her winning 24-game QuickPick was purchased at Paperboxx Deception Bay, Deception Bay Shopping Centre.
The Paperboxx team said they’re over the moon for their winning customer and wished them all the best for the future.
