$316,000 Saturday Gold Lotto prize won in Biloela

A BILOELA woman was shocked to discover she was more than $316,000 richer after winning a first division share in the weekend's Saturday Gold Lotto draw.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, was unaware of her first division prize until a Golden Casket official contacted her today and broke the dream-come-true news.

"You're kidding? That's incredible!" the stunned winner exclaimed.

"It's funny because I only said to my husband the other day, 'Wouldn't it be nice to win division one.

"I can even handle sharing with a dozen other people."

The winner said she was too shocked to say what she'll do with her Saturday Gold Lotto windfall but did want to pay off some debts.

The winning 12-game marked Saturday Gold Lotto entry was purchased from Biloela News, Shop 2B in Biloela Shopping World, Kariboe Street in Biloela.

Throughout Australia, there were thirteen entries that won a first division share of Saturday Gold Lotto's estimated $4 million division one prize pool on Saturday, April, 11, each worth $316,393.49.

There were five winning entries purchased in Queensland, four were sold in Victoria, one each in New South Wales and South Australia, and two in Western Australia.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3519 on Saturday 11 April 2015 were 13, 21, 30, 3, 24 and 7 with the supplementary numbers of 27 and 4.
