Man left scratch­ing head after $422,000 win

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

A MAN from Eidsvold said he had a lot to think about after scor­ing a first-di­vi­sion win worth more than $422,000 in The Pools.

The win­ner, who wishes to re­main anony­mous, was over­whelmed when a Golden Cas­ket of­fi­cial con­firmed he’d won a di­vi­sion-one prize of $422,436.41 in the draw.

“I only checked my ticket after I found out the newsagency had sold a di­vi­sion-one win­ning ticket in The Pools!” the stunned win­ner ex­plained.

“I re­ally don’t know what I’m go­ing to do with the prize­money. I’m go­ing to have to think about it!”

I re­ally don’t know what I’m go­ing to do with the prize­money.

There was only one en­try that scooped the en­tire first-di­vi­sion prize.

The win­ning 12-game Quick­Pick en­try was pur­chased at Eidsvold News, 46 More­ton St in Eidsvold.

Ber­nice An­der­son from Eidsvold News said she knew the gen­tle­man but could not dis­close his name.

“We are over the moon with hap­pi­ness that we sold another win­ning ticket,” Mrs An­der­son said.

“We sold a $4000 scratchie in the past two weeks and now this.”

Eidsvold News sold a $10 mil­lion di­vi­sion-one win­ning ticket in Powerball in 2010.

The win­ning num­bers in The Pools draw 1526 were 6, 2, 19, 17, 12 and 3. The sup­ple­men­tary was 30.
