Family ends the week $474,000 richer

A PARK Avenue family has come forward this afternoon to claim their $474, 094.13 division one prize from last Saturday's Gold Lotto draw.

The family bought the ticket from the Park Avenue News and Convenience Store, where they are regualr customers.

"We always buy our lotto entries from park Avenue News and Convenience," they said.

"We've been playing Gold Lotto for almost thirty years now, so we've had plenty of time to think about what we'd do if we won."

"We'll start by paying off the mortgage, then we'll invest the rest for our retirement."

The family said they would be thanking the store's staff by buying them a carton of beer.

"That way they can celebrate with us too!" they said.

The family was one of four division one winners in Queensland for Saturday's draw.
