$1.4m prize shocks lotto winner
MURPHYS Creek's luckiest resident has picked up a $1.4 million lotto prize after buying a ticket from Toowoomba's luckiest newsagency.
The woman in her early 60s, who wished to remain anonymous, said she was in shock yesterday morning when she received the call from the Gold Lotto crew telling her she had won division one in Saturday's $4 million jackpot.
“Are you sure? I don't know what to say ... I'm in a state of shock!” the woman said when she received the phone call.
“I thought I'd won only about $400,000 and I was over the moon with that, now you're telling me I've won an extra $1 million?”
The woman said she never missed the lotto and planned to buy some land with her win.
Ed Grace, owner of the Wilsonton Newsagency where the woman bought her ticket, said it was the ninth division one winner the newsagency had sold.
“I believe we're Toowoomba's luckiest newsagency,” he said.
