Draw 357 - Winners

Victorian police officer wins a $3.7 million prize

Blissfully unaware of what was to come next, Jonathan Matthews*, from Darley Victoria, was sitting at a course for work when he received the unexpected phone call from RSL Art Union General Manager, Tracey Bishop, telling him that he had won Draw 357 and was now the proud owner of two beachfront villas in Bilinga, on the Gold Coast.

“Are you pranking me?” exclaimed Mr Matthews with bewilderment upon hearing the news that he was the winner of this $3.7 million prize. Thanks to Mr. Matthew’s $100 ticket purchase he also received an extra $135,000 in gold bullion as a book buyer’s prize.

This was not the first time Mr. Matthews had dreamt of a relaxing beach lifestyle, he also purchased a $100 ticket in the Art Union’s last beach house draw. At 51 years old, police officer Mr. Matthews now has the life-changing decision of whether to move to the sunshine state with his wife or whether to rent out the properties until the couple retires. With an estimated rental return of $156,000 a year, this would certainly make a difference to the couple, as well as the rest of the family currently living in Melbourne.

Included in the prize is $232,500 worth of state-of-the art furniture and appliances, making it easy for the family to slide straight into beachside living. Mr. Matthews will also receive a $2,000 travel voucher to spend as he pleases, perhaps using it for his trip to visit his villas!

Congratulations to Mr Matthews and all the winners of Draw 357. From all of us here at RSL Art Union, thank you for your support and good luck in the current lottery, Draw 358, where supporters will have the chance to win a $2.4 million prize – the choice between a waterfront property in Sydney or the Gold Coast!

This incredible $3.7 million prize not only offers two breathtaking beachfront homes, but a relaxing lifestyle that’s second to none.

Imagine waking to the sound of the ocean waves lapping the shore in your airy master room situated on the third floor, before stepping onto your private balcony. Greeted with 180-degree views of sparkling blue water and pristine beach, you’ll feel like you’ve left your life and been transported to a permanent lavish beach holiday. Downstairs and you’ll find the gourmet chef’s kitchen and entertainers deck, where you can create a mouth-watering breakfast, as you watch enthusiastic beachgoers kick off their day in the surf.

Once breakfast is sorted, why not venture out of this coastal sanctuary and explore the spectacular South-East Queensland coastline? Enjoy a bike ride taking on spectacular Gold Coast beaches, grab some fresh fish and chips at Kirra Beach, or cool off from your ride by hiring a paddle board and floating down tranquil Currumbin Creek.

As the evening approaches you could treat yourself by discovering the local eateries, with Allure in Currumbin Beach being the perfect place to start! Perhaps a celebratory dinner to welcome you to your new home?

Prize at a glance:

  • 2 luxury house sized villas with sweeping ocean views from the second and third floors.

  • Only 20 meters to the nearest patrolled family friendly beach
  • Rent both for an estimated $156,000 a year or sell and enjoy your millions however you please!
