Mum to help family with $1.7m Lotto win
Words by Nick Crockford

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.

Best present

“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.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4317 on December 3, 2022 were 39, 4, 15, 12, 10 and 8. The supplementary numbers were 45 and 37.

Three winners

Across Australia, there were three division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4137 – two in Queensland and one in Victoria.

The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 404 so far this calendar year, including 95 won by Golden Casket customers.

There are more chances to win big with tomorrow’s Oz Lotto offering $30 million, while Thursday’s Powerball has $20 million up for grabs.

Last financial year, Australia’s Official Lotteries contributed more than $1.6 billion via state lottery taxes and donations to help community initiatives, such as hospitals, health research, disaster relief and education.
