A Kingaroy woman was shocked on Monday afternoon to discover she had became an overnight millionaire after winning more than $1.4 million in Saturday’s Gold Lotto.
The South Burnett resident, who wants to remain anonymous, held one of the 14 Division 1 winning entries nationally in Draw 3963.
Each Division 1 winner took home home $1,428,571.43.
She bought her winning entry at Robinson’s News & Gifts in Shoppingworld.
When her win was confirmed by an official, she screamed: “Oh my god! Oh my god!”, A Golden Casket spokesperson said.
“What the hell? Can you repeat that to my family? Wow! Are you sure?
“Holy sh**, I am shocked. I’m a millionaire? That is amazing!
“I had no idea this is what you were calling about. This is ridiculous.
“I can’t wait to tell the rest of my family.”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her prize, she said she needed time to think but did have a few ideas.
“I want to pay my house off and I’d love to go on a holiday to New Zealand.”
Newsagency owner John Robinson said he was thrilled to have made one of his customers a millionaire.
“It’s been fantastic,” he said.
“What a great way to start the week. We are thrilled for our winner and wish her all the best.
“This is the first Division 1 win we have sold at this store.
“Hopefully this is the start of a winning streak and we make more of our customers millionaires.”
