Gold Lotto millionaire still wanted after three months
What would you do with $1 million?
That’s the question Golden Casket officials are patiently waiting to ask a Maroochydore resident or visitor who bought the sole winning entry in a Monday Gold Lotto draw three months ago, but has yet to come forward and claim their prize.
Golden Casket has this week renewed calls for customers to check any tickets they bought from Cotton Tree News, 1/9 King Street, Maroochydore, in December last year.
Maroochydore’s unclaimed $1 million prize was won from Monday 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 Matt Hart 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.
“Our missing millionaire could be a local resident, someone who was holidaying in Maroochydore, or simply someone who was visiting family and friends in the region. We don’t know, but we’d love to unite the winner with their $1 million windfall,” he said.
“We haven’t lost hope that the unaware Maroochydore winner will be found. Just recently a man found an old Lotto ticket while cleaning his car and discovered he’d won a million dollars more than a year earlier!
“With $1 million to be claimed, it could pay for you to have a clean-up around the house, car or anywhere else you stash Lotto tickets.
“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.
It was the only entry that won a first division prize in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3618, which offered 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 279 so far this financial year, including 68 won by Golden Casket customers.
