The Queenslander held one of two division one winning entries in Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 4389 on Wednesday, May 8.

She pocketed the division one prize of $1 million.

When an official from The Lott called to confirm the wondrous news, the gleeful woman revealed she hadn’t slept a wink.

“Thank you so much!” she cheered.

“I’m so tired. I got no sleep at all last night but for the best reason!

“It’s funny, actually, I always play Saturday Gold Lotto but never Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto.

“I won about $24 on my Saturday entry and had a good feeling so I decided to put one on for Wednesday’s draw.

“Because of that, my husband was a bit confused at first. I woke him up and said, ‘I’ve got something to tell you’.

“He looked panicked, and I said, ‘Don’t worry, it’s good news, we won the Lotto!’

“This entry was also a bit different because I normally do a QuickPick but this time I chose a few numbers – birthdays and things, then I closed my eyes and picked completely random for the rest.”

With $1 million about to boost her bank account, the Moreton Bay local couldn’t help but dream of how she’d be using it.

“Honestly, I’ve already spent it all in my head!” she laughed.

“Of course, we’ll use it towards the mortgage and share some with our older kids.

“We also have a family overseas holiday planned soon, so I think that will be a lot nicer now!”

The winning numbers in Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 4389 on Wednesday May 8 were 28, 43, 4, 37, 38 and 15, while the supplementary numbers were 16 and 33.

The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 356 so far in FY24.
