WINNER FOUND: Cairns man claims $1 million prize!

Thursday 4 July, 2013 - A man in Cairns has come forward to claim his $1 million division one prize from last night’s Wednesday Gold Lotto draw! 

The winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, was overwhelmed when he spoke to a Golden Casket official and said he’s going to think carefully about how to spend his windfall. 

The man purchased his winning 12-game marked Wednesday Gold Lotto entry from Goldies On McManus at 180 McManus Street in Whitfield, Cairns. 

Owner of Goldies On McManus Duncan Reynolds said he’s almost as excited as the winner. 

“This is the third division one lotto win we’ve sold in the eight years I’ve owned the outlet,” Duncan said. 

“I was just saying yesterday it’s about time we sold another big win!” he laughed. 

“I’m really happy for the winner and glad the prize has gone to a local, it’s great news for him.” 

Golden Casket spokesperson Zoe Knobel said last night’s win has placed Far North Queensland in second place for the coveted title of ‘2013 Lotto Hotspot’. 

“Far North Queensland is one of 2013’s Lotto Hotspots so far, with four division one wins this year already, behind the Brisbane region which has clocked up a total of seven major lotto wins,” Ms Knobel added. 

The winning numbers in Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3334 on 3 July 2013 were 11, 19, 41, 44, 5 and 28 with the supplementary numbers 22 and 29.
