Gympie strikes gold with $2 million Powerball win!

Imagine getting an extra $2 million in your weekly pay packet? That’s exactly what’s happened for a Golden Casket customer who scored a division one share worth a whopping $2 million in last night’s Powerball draw with a ticket they purchased in the regional town of Gympie!

While the winner who’s struck Powerball gold did register their $2 million winning ticket to a Winners Circle card, they’ve missed out on receiving their dream-come-true phone call this morning because it appears their contact details are not up to date.

Golden Casket spokesperson Belinda McDougall said instead of being able to phone the winner this morning, she’ll be the one waiting by the phone.

“While there’s no question who the winner is, we can’t deliver the life-changing news to them that they’re now multi-millionaire because they haven’t updated their contact details,” Ms McDougall explained.

“So there are two million reasons for registered Powerball players who purchased an entry into last night’s draw in the town of Gympie to check their ticket immediately.

“We’re eager to break the life-changing news to this new multi-millionaire so they can start making all their Powerball dreams a reality. Just imagine how your plans for the weekend could suddenly change if you discovered you’d won $2 million.

“Any Powerball players who purchased an entry in last night’s draw from Nextra Gympie should check their entry as soon as possible as they could be changing their plans for not only the weekend but for the rest of their lives!

“Anyone who believes they are holding the $2 million division one winning Powerball ticket should contact Golden Casket immediately on 131 868 to start the process of claiming their life-changing prize!”

Golden Casket reminds customers to keep the contact details registered to their Winners Circle card up-to-date so they don’t miss out on that dream-come-true phone call if they win first division.

The division one winning Powerball entry was purchased at Nextra Gympie in Gympie Central Shopping Centre, Excelsior Road in Gympie.

Around Australia, there were three entries that won a first division prize in last night’s huge $6 million Powerball jackpot draw worth $2 million each. Along with the winning entry from Gympie, the other division one winning tickets were purchased in New South Wales and Western Australia.

The winning numbers in Powerball draw 1060 on Thursday 8 September were 31, 25, 9, 28, 17 and 10. The Powerball number was 2.

Powerball will offer a $3 million division one prize pool for next Thursday’s draw.
