Retired couple celebrates second division 1 lotto win

A RETIRED couple from Brisbane's northside is celebrating their second win in division one in Saturday Gold Lotto in less than four years.

The Stafford couple was one of 13 division one winners nationally who each took home a first division prize of $329,266.60 in Saturday's Gold Lotto.

The couple also won a division one prize of more than $500,000 three years ago.

"That's unreal!" the winning man exclaimed when his Gold Lotto win was confirmed this morning.

"I checked my ticket yesterday and I was sitting there marking the numbers. I checked it again and again. I said to my wife 'we've got six numbers in the Lotto!'.

"She was over the moon!"

"I worked hard all my life and it was all manual work. Now we can relax and enjoy our retirement," the man explained.

The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their 24-game QuickPick entry from West Stafford News.
