Brisbane Couple Wins Second Top Saturday Lotto Prize

A man and woman from Brisbane have defied astronomical odds to win the Australia Saturday Lotto jackpot for the second time in three years. The retired couple bagged AU$329,267 in Saturday’s draw after buying one of the 13 tickets to match all six numbers drawn, having previously won more than AU$500,000 in the same lottery in 2014.

The lucky winners purchased their Quick Pick ticket for Saturday’s draw from West Stafford News and were astonished to discover that they had pocketed a share of the AU$4.2 million Division One prize. The man said: “I worked hard all my life and it was all manual work. Now we can relax and enjoy our retirement. We’ll share it with our family, buy a new car, and just and try and keep breathing. Money isn’t everything, but it can make you smile a bit wider!”

The Brisbane residents are not the first lottery players to achieve multiple wins. Back in April 2015, David and Kathleen Long from Scunthorpe in the UK won their second EuroMillions prize of £1 million, just a couple of years after their first success. Earlier this month, Californian teenager Rosa Dominguez managed to win two six-figure sums in the space of a week after buying a couple of scratchcards.

While such stories are still rare, they do show that it is possible to win fantastic prizes at any time, whether you have been lucky in the past, are playing for the first time or are a regular player waiting for that big breakthrough. The odds of winning a Saturday Lotto jackpot are better than for many lotteries as you only have to select six numbers from a choice of 45, and barely a draw goes by when there are not multiple winners of the top prize. Take a look at the Saturday Lotto Results for recent winning numbers.

Saturday Lotto also offers special Superdraws at various times throughout the year, raising the jackpot to a guaranteed amount. There is one such event this Saturday, with AU$20 million up for grabs in Division One. Anyone who fancies their chances can buy tickets from authorised retailers in Australia or by choosing numbers online.
