A Gold Coast resident or visitor has kick-started the week as a multi-millionaire after scoring division one in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw – they just don’t know it yet.
The Queenslander held one of the four division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4189, drawn Saturday 11 September 2021. Each division one winning entry took home $2,500,000.
However, the winning entry is unregistered, which means officials from The Lott have no way of contacting the winner to break the life-changing news. Instead, they’re waiting for the ticketholder to come forward to claim their prize.
Their life-changing entry was purchased at Palm Beach Newsagency, Shop 5A, Pavilions on 5th, 6 Fifth Avenue, Palm Beach.
Palm Beach Newsagency owner John Scanes said he was hoping to hear from their latest winner soon.
“We are so excited for our lucky customer, and we’re really hoping this prize has gone to one of our locals,” he said.
“We’ve sold six division one winning entries over the years. Here’s hoping our winning streak will continue with many more big prizes in the future!
“We hope our winner checks their ticket soon and realises they are a multi-millionaire!”
The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney said she was eager to unite the Gold Coast’s latest division one winner with their prize.
“It’s likely this winner has been going about their weekend as normal with no idea they’ve just won $2.5 million!” she said.
“We’re urging all players who purchased a Saturday Gold Lotto ticket from Palm Beach Newsagency to check their tickets today.
“Imagine how exciting it would be to realise on a Monday morning you’ve just won $2.5 million!
“If you discover you are holding the winning ticket, contact The Lott on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize.”
