Monday 23 April, 2012 - A lucky Gold Lotto player who purchased their ticket in the inner city Brisbane suburb of Windsor won $1,369,698.34 in Saturday’s draw, but it seems they don’t yet know it.
Golden Casket Public Relations Executive Zoe Knobel said Golden Casket is still waiting for the winner to come forward and claim their prize.
“It’s possible the winner is at work today, with the winning ticket in their wallet or handbag, completely unaware that they are now almost $1.4 million richer,” said Ms Knobel.
“Unfortunately the entry was not registered to a Winners Circle Card, so Golden Casket has no way of making contact with the winner to tell them their life-changing news.
“If you purchased an unregistered entry in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3209 from Homezone Newsagency in Homezone on Newmarket Road, have your ticket checked at a Golden Casket outlet as soon as possible.
“You could be the mystery missing millionaire we are searching for!”
Homezone Newsagency owner Steve Adams said he was very happy to have sold a division one winning entry.
“I hope the lucky winner is one of our regular customers, it would be great to see one of them have such a life-changing win,” Mr Adams said.
“If you purchased an unregistered entry in Saturday’s draw, come in and see us to have your ticket checked.”
The mystery winner was one of three division one winners nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3209, with all three winners hailing from Queensland.
Ms Knobel said it was a great weekend for Queensland Gold Lotto players.
“Three Queensland winners shared in a $4 million division one prize pool, meaning they’re all now millionaires!”
The winning numbers were 1, 15, 16, 21, 28 and 2 with supplementary numbers 35 and 40.
