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!
