New multi-millionaire for Gold Coast glitter strip!

The Gold Coast is growing a new reputation as ‘the glitter strip of Gold Lotto winners’ with another division one jewel worth more than $4 million added to its crown in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw!

But just who is the Gold Coast glitter strip’s newest multi-millionaire is still a mystery as the winner did not register their entry to a Winners Circle Card.

The only information Golden Casket has to go by is that the winning ticket was purchased from Surf News, Shop 30 Marina Mirage in Main Beach.

Kay and Ken Byrnes are the owners of Surf News and were delighted to discover their outlet had sold the only division one winner entry in the weekend’s Saturday’s Gold Lotto.

“It’s fantastic! It’s really good news to know one of your customers won multi-millions – no matter whether it’s a local or a holidayer!” Mrs Byrnes exclaimed.

“Perhaps it was someone doing their shopping at the Marina Mirage Farmers markets, or even someone holidaying and visiting Seaworld!

“The Gold Coast is known for the number of division one winning tickets sold here. We get a lot of southerners coming in and buying their tickets saying they’ve heard it’s a lucky strip.

“It’s wonderful to be adding another plaque to our wall. Five years ago, we sold a $250,000 winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket and only one week later we sold a $1.8 million division one prize in Saturday Gold Lotto.

“But we’ve got a great big white wall to fill up with more winning customers, so fingers crossed we can do it again in Gold Lotto’s $21 million prize pool this Saturday 29 October!”

Golden Casket spokesperson Claire Taylor said she was eager to speak with the division one winning Saturday Gold Lotto ticket holder so that they could kick off their week in multi-million dollar style.

“Someone has purchased an unregistered ticket in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw from the Gold Coast’s glitter strip that is now worth more than $4 million!” Ms Taylor exclaimed.

“That extremely valuable ticket could be anywhere - floating around in someone’s handbag, stuffed in the glove box of the car, pinned to the fridge or even sitting in someone’s pocket!

“That’s why we’re urging everyone in the Gold Coast’s glitter strip who was in with a chance to win in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw to check their ticket without delay.

“If you discover you’re holding the division one winning ticket that’s worth multi-millions – please keep it in a safe place and phone Golden Casket immediately on 131 868 to start the process of claiming your prize!”

Each Saturday, Gold Lotto offers an estimated $4 million first division prize pool and in draw 3679 on Saturday 22 October, there was only one division one winning entry across the nation purchased from Queensland’s iconic Gold Coast that scooped the entire division one prize pool totalling $4,114,177.70!

The last time one winner won the entire Saturday Gold Lotto prize pool was 31 draws ago, in draw 3615 on 12 March 2016, and was won by a Brisbane man in his 30s.

The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3679 on Saturday 22 October 2016 were 37, 35, 16, 22, 42 and 39 with the supplementary numbers 43 and 29.

The weekend’s winners take the Lott’s division one winning tally to 132 so far this financial year, including 36 from Golden Casket.
