Two Coast residents are millionaires and don't even know it
COAST lotto customers are missing out on millions of dollars as renewed calls are made for division one winners to claim their prizes.
A $2 million winning ticket was bought from Aussie News, on Frizzo Rd at Palmview, in the lead-up to the October 14 Saturday Gold Lotto draw.
Golden Casket is also trying to find the $1.024 million winning ticket holder who bought their entry at Cotton Tree News in Maroochydore in the lead-up to the December 19 Monday Gold Lotto draw last year.
Both entries were unregistered so Golden Casket must wait for the unsuspecting winners to check their tickets and make contact to start the prize claim process.
If you won $2 million, would you be at work today?
This poll ended on 30 October 2017.
Yes, I love my job
I would ... to quit
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
Aussie News owner Stephen Laing said it was the first division one winning entry his outlet had sold.
"We've been letting everyone know we've sold a division one and asking them to check their tickets," Mr Laing said.
"We've had lots of people coming in wanting to see if it's them but we're still waiting.
"Maybe it's a local, maybe it's a tourist or maybe it's one of the construction workers from the Bruce Highway upgrade.
"Who knows, but we'd love to break the news to them."
Golden Casket spokesperson Matt Hart said he urged all Gold Lotto players to check their tickets as soon as possible.
The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3781 on Saturday, October 14, 2017 were 39, 25, 18, 13, 6 and 34. The supplementary numbers were 42 and 9.
