A Mount Ommaney woman couldn’t contain her happiness after discovering that she is one of the seven division one winners in the Saturday Gold Lotto 3979 drawn on Saturday 7 September 2019.
The winner, whose name was withheld, purchased her winning entry at Middle Park News & Gifts, Shop 13 of Park Village Shopping Centre at 92 Horizon Drive in Middle Park.
She pocketed a division one prize worth $573,928.68 plus an additional prize for winning division three six times, making her $580,273.98 richer. She said that she did not believe her husband when he told her about it and had to look at the numbers for a while to be convinced.
“We’ve been playing these numbers for years and years. They’re special numbers – family birthdates and things like that,” she said.
“I’ve been waiting a long time for this! I feel very lucky because some people never get to see their numbers to come up.
“I’m so excited. It’s just wonderful. I’ve been jumping around a lot!”
“There’s a few places in Australia I’ve always wanted to see, and overseas as well. But I won’t decide or make any plans until I see it in my bank account and make sure I’m not dreaming.”
