“Our dreams have come true” rejoice Tewantin grandparents following Gold Lotto $1 million win
A Tewantin couple are over the moon after hearing the news they’re the latest Saturday Gold Lotto division one winners and the state’s newest millionaires.
The shocked grandparents held one of the four division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3899, drawn Saturday 1 December 2018, with each winning entry scoring a division one prize of $1,004,705.27.
When we spoke with the husband to confirm the win, he initially struggled to put his excitement into words.
“Good heavens,” he finally rejoiced.
“Goodness gracious me.
“I can’t scratch myself, that’s absolutely amazing!”
As the life-changing news sunk in, the couple revealed they were passionate volunteers and planned to put some of the prize towards causes close to their hearts.
“We’ve been dedicated to welfare work for years, looking after the people we care so much about will be a whole lot easier now,” he shared.
“You’ve made my dreams come true!
“I never imagined this would happen to us.”
While the couple was still recovering from the shock of their win, the regular players said they would also use their windfall to do some home renos.
“We do have a lot of work to do around the house, so we will get a few contractors around here, instead of me having to do all the work” he laughed.
“It will be a different Christmas this year, that’s for sure.
“I just can’t believe it.
“You’ve taken my breath away.”
The winning entry was purchased from Tewantin Newsagency, 107 Poinciana Avenue, Tewantin.
