From Coins to Jackpot: Redcliffe Woman’s $10,000 Windfall

In an extraordinary stroke of luck, a Redcliffe woman has described herself as the “luckiest person in Australia” after the gold coins rattling around her bag turned into a $10,000 windfall.

“When something like this happens, you struggle to believe it!” she exclaimed, still in disbelief after receiving a call from an official at The Lott confirming her win.

Her winning ticket, a $5 Cash Path Instant Scratch-Its, was purchased at The Lucky Charm Redcliffe, located at Shop 7B, Bluewater Square Shopping Centre, 20 Anzac Avenue, Redcliffe.

“I just keep thinking, ‘Oh my god, am I the luckiest person in Australia?'”

“My kids and I are still gobsmacked,” she shared.

“None of us can believe that this has happened, but we’re all so grateful. I’m going to share it with them, and it’s going to be such a help for us all given how expensive things are getting now.”

Additionally, she intends to set aside a portion of the prize money for added financial security.

“It’s just wonderful to know I can put a little bit away and I can have some security moving forward,” she explained.

For this lucky Redcliffe resident, the $10,000 windfall was more than just a financial blessing; it was a reminder of the joy that comes from a simple scratch.

“I love scratching away at an Instant Scratch-Its ticket! It’s a bit of fun and this just shows that you never know what’s going to happen.

“Thank you so much for this!”

Redcliffe Player Holds Unregistered Ticket That Won $2 Million in Saturday Gold Lotto

A mystery player from Redcliffe holds one of Saturday Gold Lotto’s multi-million winning entries. Could you possibly be the holder of the unregistered ticket that won $2 million?

“Someone in Redcliffe could have gone to work this morning with no idea they’ve woken up $2 million richer,” The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney said.

“Just imagine planning all the ways you could enjoy that prize!”

The mystery Moreton Bay Region player, who could be a Redcliffe resident or visitor to the region, held one of the10 division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto’s $20 Million Superdraw last Saturday 31 October 2020.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4099 were 19, 4, 26, 27, 34 and 13, and the supplementary numbers were 6 and 15. Each of the winning entries won a division prize of $2 million.

The Lott said that the ticket is unregistered making it impossible for officials to contact the winner and so they will have to wait for someone to come forward and claim the prize. The multi-million-dollar winning entry was purchased at Redcliffe Discount Drug Store and it’s the outlet’s first division one winning entry.

“We were absolutely delighted and so excited when we first heard the news,” Redcliffe Discount Drug Store manager Jodie Schuler said.

“We’re celebrating the milestone in store and asking all of our customers to check their tickets. We hope they come forward soon.

“A massive congratulations to our winner. We all hope they have a blast for the rest of their life, without any stress.”

Cooney advises everyone who might have bought the winning entry to make sure to  “check your wallet, handbag, fridge door, or anywhere else you may have stored your tickets” as previous winners have found valuable tickets in all sorts of places.

“If you discover you’re holding the winning ticket, hold on tight to it and phone 131 868 as soon as possible so we can start the prize claim process!”

She also suggests for players to register their tickets to a Winners Circle card so The Lott officials can call them directly in case they win a major prize.
