“That’s certainly better than a meat tray!”
Geoff* from Aspendale, Victoria didn’t have much luck in the Melbourne Cup. But the very next day, he was onto an even bigger winner!
The RSL Art Union team could barely contain their excitement as Deborah Pescott, Head of Lotteries Commercial Operations, told Geoff the fantastic news.
He’d just won the $3.4 million Multi-State Trifecta – an apartment each on the Gold Coast, in Sydney and in Melbourne, plus $350,000 in gold!
“My God!” Geoff exclaimed in disbelief. “That’s certainly better than the last thing I won, which was a meat tray.
“I’m amazed. Thank you!”
Three Homes Across Three Cities
Geoff quickly put Deborah on speakerphone so his wife Sally* would believe him.
“Gosh! That takes a bit of digesting, doesn’t it?” Sally said, after some shocked silence. “So I shouldn’t whinge that my $10 bet on the races yesterday didn’t come home?”
With three homes across three states to play with, Geoff and Sally now have the keys to a world of lifestyle choices.
They can now spend endless summer holidays by Surfers Paradise Beach; enjoy the best of inner-Sydney life in trendy, colourful Darlinghurst; soak up all the amazing food, culture and entertainment of Melbourne Docklands – or all of the above!
And because they bought a $80 ticket book, their $350,000 gold prize will be $80,000 bigger!
“Hang on, I’m just getting off the floor!”
Geoff and Sally have been proud to support RSL Art Union over the years, especially as Sally’s father is an RSL member. And now they have 3.4 million reasons to celebrate.
“Happy hour at home starts at 5.30, but it may start early this afternoon.” Geoff joked.
Congratulations, Geoff and Sally – we wish you all the best for the future!
A massive thanks to both of you, and to all our amazing supporters. Every ticket sold helps veterans in Queensland and throughout Australia.
