Taigum fam­ily wins $1m in Lotto

Bayside and Northern Suburbs Star - - NEWS | OPINION -

A TAIGUM mum has be­gun shop­ping for her fam­ily’s first home af­ter win­ning $1 mil­lion in Gold Lotto.

The woman was one of four di­vi­sion one win­ners na­tion­ally in Mon­day & Wed­nes­day Lotto draw 3692 on Mon­day, Septem­ber 4.

Speak­ing to a Golden Cas­ket of­fi­cial the fol­low­ing morn­ing, the woman said she had been hap­pily ‘freak­ing out’ since she checked her en­try at home im­me­di­ately af­ter the draw.

“We haven’t slept. I tried, I just couldn’t. I was freak­ing out,” she said.

“We checked it on­line.

“We saw we had five num­bers and then we had six num­bers. I thought ‘you’re jok­ing’.”

The mum said she knew ex­actly what she’d do with her new mil­lion­aire sta­tus.

“We’ve worked hard but haven’t been able to get any­where,” she said.

“We’ve been rent­ing for decades and have never been able to save for a house de­posit.

“So we’ll def­i­nitely buy a house.”

The win­ner pur­chased her 24-game Quick-Pick from Taigum Lotto and Cignell on Roghan Road.

It’s been a win­ning year for the out­let – ear­lier this year it sold an In­stant Scratch-Its ticket that won a cus­tomer one of the top prizes of $250,000, and in

July it sold the 1st Prize win­ning en­try in a Lucky Lot­ter­ies Mega Jack­pot draw that landed one cus­tomer $200,000.

The win­ning num­bers on Septem­ber 4 were 13, 8, 16,

24, 37 and 7, and the sup­ple­men­tary num­bers were 5 and 20.
