Grandmother sees winning lotto numbers in dream

A TOOWOOMBA grandmother who won a first division prize of more than $624,000 in Saturday Gold Lotto said her winning numbers came to her in a dream.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, was overjoyed when Golden Casket confirmed yesterday that she had won a share in division one worth $624,516.12 in the weekend's draw.

"Is this true?" the winner questioned. "I'm trembling at the moment!

"I dreamt those winning numbers more than 10 years ago.

"I remember I woke up in the morning and thought I better write the numbers down before I forgot them.

"I've been playing them ever since!

When asked what she planned to do with her Saturday Gold Lotto windfall, the excited winner replied, "Who knows at this stage. But I'd say I'll most likely invest in property and perhaps do some travel."

The winning 12-game marked entry was bought at Wilsonton Newsagency.
