Retired Buderim Couple Wins $1 Million at the Saturday Gold Lotto Draw

A retired Buderim couple has become part of the line-up of Lotto millionaires, after winning the Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3971 last 10 August 2019.

The couple, who wishes to remain anonymous, held one of the four division one winning entries at the Saturday Gold Lotto draw⁠— allowing them to take home a total of $1,017,643.37. The other winners for this draw were from Victoria (2 winners) and from South Australia (1 winner).

The winning numbers in the Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3971 were 39, 9, 6, 37, 1 and 38, whilst the supplementary numbers were 11 and 45.

Even after checking and confirming their winning ticket through a Golden Casket official, the retired Buderim couple were still in shock over their new millionaire status.

Still overwhelmed with joy, the couple expressed how much this win would change their plans for retirement. According to the woman, “It’s turned our lives upside down and inside out. This is fantastic. Unbelievable. It’s sinking in very slowly.”

When they were asked about how they are planning on using their lotto prize, the couple mentioned on travelling the world, doing some charity work, and sharing their win with their family.

Winning Streak

The couple purchased their winning entry at the outlet of Wurtulla Newsagency. 

Wade Broderick, owner of the said outlet mentioned how they have been on a winning streak recently. 

Just a week before the Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3971, Wurtulla Newsagency had just sold a division two winning entry. And upon knowing the news that the new millionaire also came from a Wurtulla Newsagency entry, they were all shocked and super excited about it. 

According to Broderick, “they have been eagerly waiting to sell a division one winning entry since taking over the outlet 18 months ago.” He further mentioned how all their customers were extremely happy for the outlet and of course, for the lucky winner.
