$2.7 million goes wanting in Queensland – is Golden Casket looking for you?

Friday 14 February, 2014 - Who are you because Golden Casket really, REALLY wants to know! 

Three division one prizes worth more than $2.78 million remain unclaimed in Queensland! Days, weeks and even years after three Queenslanders won the valuable prizes, Golden Casket is still waiting for these mystery winners to come forward and claim their lottery windfall. 

One missing winner may not be aware they’re now a multi-millionaire after their unregistered Wednesday Gold Lotto entry they purchased at NewsExtra DFO Cairns won a division one prize worth $2 million three weeks ago on 22 January 2014. 

More recently, a division one prize of $684,316.45 was won in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3395 on 1 February 2014. The ticket was not registered to a Winners Circle Card and was purchased at Supanews Keperra

Finally, a $2 Casket winner who purchased their winning ticket from Woodridge News and Casket Agency has allowed more than three years to pass without claiming their $100,000 top prize. 

Golden Casket spokesperson Belinda McDougall said she prompting lotto customers to search for and check any old lottery tickets in a bid to find the three missing winners. 

“With three mystery winners still out there, Golden Casket is encouraging people to check their wallets or purses, dig around in cupboards and even glove boxes for any forgotten Gold Lotto or $2 Casket tickets,” Ms McDougall said. 

“This is why we encourage Golden Casket customers to register their lottery purchases to a Winners Circle Card because it ensures their prizes are secure and that we can give them that dream-come-true phone call if they win division one. 

“So if you believe you are holding any of these winning tickets, we encourage you to keep it in a safe place and contact Gold Casket as soon as possible to start the prize claim process.”
