Maroochydore's $1 million Monday winner still missing after one month!

In the madness of the Christmas/New Year period, it appears someone has forgotten to check a Monday Gold Lotto ticket they purchased in Maroochydore and are yet to realise they’ve become a millionaire.

Golden Casket has now been waiting 28 days for the customer who purchased a ticket in the Sunshine Coast suburb of Maroochydore to check their Monday Gold Lotto ticket and realise they won a cool $1 million!

Maroochydore’s unclaimed prize was won in Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3618, which was drawn just before Christmas on Monday 19 December 2016, and revealed the winning numbers: 4, 10, 6, 33, 11 and 38.

Golden Casket spokesperson Claire Taylor said the division one winning ticket was not registered to a Winners Circle card so officials had no clues or contact details for the mysterious missing winner.

“It’s incredible to think that someone could be holding on to an unregistered Monday Gold Lotto ticket worth $1 million and still not know it after almost one month!” Ms Taylor exclaimed.

“It could have been someone holidaying in Maroochydore or visiting family ahead of Christmas, or simply a local customer – but since the winner didn’t register their ticket to a Winners Circle Card it’s anyone’s guess!

“We’re all guilty of shoving that pile of papers in a drawer or cupboard in a quick tidy-up and being a bit slow to unpack from holiday, so the division winning ticket could be just waiting for rediscovery.

“You may not think it’s possible that you could be the mystery millionaire we’re searching for, but if you purchased an unregistered entry in Monday Gold Lotto in Maroochydore that you haven’t quite got around to checking, you’re in with a chance!

“We recommend anyone who believes they are holding the division one winning entry to keep it in a safe place and contact Golden Casket as soon as possible on 131 868 to start the prize claim process.”

The division one winning entry was purchased from Cotton Tree News, 1/9 King Street in Maroochydore.

Throughout Australia, it was the only entry that won a first division prize in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3618, which offers a guaranteed division one prize of $1 million for up to four winners in each draw.

The six winning numbers in Monday Gold Lotto draw 3618 on Monday 20 December 2016 were 4, 10, 6, 33, 11 and 38. The supplementary numbers were 28 and 23.

The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 225 so far this financial year, including 53 won by Golden Casket customers.
