WINNER WINNER: It’s the second time in three weeks a Caboolture entry has won division one.

A HARDWORKING woman from the Caboolture region has been left stunned after last night winning division one four times on a single Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto entry, giving her a total prize of more than $2.77 million.

Last night's multi-million dollar windfall capped off a winning week for the woman, who on Monday won $17,000 in a lower divisional prizes in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto.

It's the second time in three weeks a Caboolture entry has won division one.  

The woman's extraordinary winning entry for last night's draw, purchased online at thelott.com, consisted of four marked System 12 games of identical numbers. 

Apart from winning division one four times - once for each marked game on her entry - she also won division 3 144 times and division 4 900 times.

In total, her system entry won 1048 times across all divisions.

She was one of three division one winners nationally in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3661 on Wednesday May 17.

Two winners were from Queensland, while the other winner was from New South Wales.

Speaking to a Golden Casket official this morning to confirm her win, the ecstatic woman admitted she felt she had been on a lucky roll in recent weeks.

"I've been waiting to hear from someone from Golden Casket all my life," she exclaimed.

"It's just unreal!  I've had two wins in the past few weeks and now last night I won $2.77 million, it's crazy.

"It's like you get your lucky time in your life and it all happens, that's how it feels to me.

"It's been a bit of a roll of wins lately, I thought my luck may have run out but it's just got better. 

"This is the icing on top of the cake."

Explaining her unique entry, the woman said she had simply wondered whether it was possible to win division one four times on a single ticket by having four games of identical numbers.

With the win still sinking in, the winner hinted it could expedite her retirement plans. 

She is also looking forward to not having to worry about money and playing a few games of golf.

"All we want to do is play golf a couple of times a week and kick back," she said.

"We've worked hard our whole lives.  It's time to put the boots down.  It's just amazing.

"It's just unreal.  This is more than I can even get my head around.

"I could not sleep last night.  This means we don't have to worry about paying bills and we can help our family out.  It's just beautiful."

A Caboolture couple won $792,331.85 with their entry in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3733 on 29 April 2017.

The six winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3661 on Wednesday 17 May 2017 were 30, 5, 25, 11, 27 and 18.  The supplementary numbers were 21 and 19.

The Lott's division one winning tally has now reached 365 so far this financial year, including 89 won by Golden Casket customers.
