Tuesday 1 July, 2014 - The timeline of events is staggering! Golden Casket can confirm that during the past week, 11 division one Lotto prizes have been won by players in Cairns!

Golden Casket spokesperson Zoe Knobel said this result is incredible for Cairns Lotto players.
“There has been a division one Lotto prize won in Cairns in consecutive draws for the last week,” Ms Knobel said.
“Given there are no Lotto draws that take place on Friday or Sunday, there has been a division one Lotto prize won on every possible day since last Wednesday. This is an unprecedented result, particularly for an area outside of Australia’s capital cities.
“Cairns is no stranger to Lotto luck. Last year, the coveted title of ‘Queensland’s 2013 Lotto Hotspot’ was awarded to postcode 4870 in Cairns.
“The winning trend in 2014 could continue with tonight’s $10 million Oz Lotto draw!” Ms Knobel added.
Golden Casket advises that the $1.29 million prize from Saturday Gold Lotto’s $22 Million Superdraw on the weekend has now been claimed by a man in Cairns.
“I can hardly talk right now,” the winning man told a Golden Casket official through his tears.
“I’m going to start my retirement mortgage and bill-free. We’ll buy some new vehicles now too; ours are on their last legs.”
The man purchased his winning Saturday Gold Lotto 36-game QuickPick entry from Raintrees Newsagency, Shop 24 in Raintrees Shopping Centre, 1 Koch Street in Cairns. He won a total prize of $1,294,129.55 in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3437 on 28 June, 2014.
Overnight, a Golden Casket Central Syndicate of 90 players around Queensland shared in a total prize of $2,287,173.90 thanks to the Monday Gold Lotto Double Win Monday draw which doubled all of their prizes from divisions one to six!
Each of the Monday Gold Lotto players who purchased entries across the state from Cairns to the Sunshine Coast to Brisbane will take home a prize of $25,413.04.
