“So look in your wallet, purse, pockets, drawers, glove box and even on the fridge door for any forgotten tickets in the weekend’s draw because you could be the winner!”
The winning ticket was purchased from Benowa Gardens Newsagency, Shop 39 in the Benowa Gardens Shopping Centre on the corner of Ashmore and Benowa Roads.
Gold Lotto players are encouraged to always register their entries to a Golden Casket Winners Circle card because not only does it ensure their prize is secure, but it also means they can be contacted directly with the news of a big win.
