Is love in Ayr this Valentine's Day for mystery Powerball jackpot winner?

Golden Casket is putting its heart on the line this Valentine’s Day to try and unite the mystery Ayr Powerball jackpot winner with their beloved $15 million prize.

As the appeal for the missing multi-millionaire enters its fifth day, officials have renewed their call for North Queenslanders to check their tickets.

The mystery winner is the sole division one winning Powerball entry from last Thursday’s draw, winning the entire jackpot prize of $15 million.

The entry was purchased from Tosh’s Convenience Store, 9 Chippendale Street in Ayr, but was not registered to a Winners Circle card.

Golden Casket spokesperson Matt Hart said it was bound to be love at first sight for the mystery winner and their precious prize.

“Roses are red, violets are blue, if you’re our missing Powerball winner, we’d love to hear from you!” he said.

“Forget the box of chocolates or red roses, what better Valentine’s Day gift could you receive than a cherished $15 million?

“While the winner still has plenty of time to claim their prize, the clock is ticking. The sooner our winner claims the prize, the sooner we can start the process for them to be united with their treasured jackpot.

“This Valentine’s Day we’d love to pop the special life-changing question: are you our mystery Ayr winner? That’s why we’re calling on anyone who bought a lotto ticket in Ayr recently to find and check those tickets!

“If you believe you are holding the division one winning entry, we urge you to keep it in a safe place and contact Golden Casket on 131 868 as soon as possible to start the process of claiming your life-changing prize.”

The mystery $15 million Powerball winner is the second customer of Tosh’s Convenience Store to become a multi-millionaire in just 15 months. In November 2015, an Ayr family won a $23.3 million division one share in a Powerball jackpot.

It’s also the second jackpot win in North Queensland within the past week, with a Mareeba farmer claiming a $15 million Oz Lotto division one prize.

The winning numbers in Powerball draw 1082 on Thursday 9 February 2017 were 11, 23, 16, 33, 31 and 21. The all-important Powerball number was 2.

The recent spate of Queensland winners has taken the Lott’s division one winners tally to 253 so far this financial year, including 59 won by Golden Casket customers.
