Million dollar ticket sold in North Bundaberg


The winner of a Golden Casket ticket worth more than one million dollars is yet to come forward to claim their prize.

The new millionaire was one of four division one winners to win $1,051,524.97 in the Saturday Gold Lotto draw.

Golden Casket is calling on customers to check their tickets if they purchased them from North Bundy News, Shop 8, Northway Plaza Shopping Centre on Queen Street in Bundaberg.

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 winner.

“Our new millionaire could be a local resident or someone who bought the entry while visiting the region.  We don’t know, but we’d love to unite the winner with their $1 million windfall,” he said.

“With $1 million to be claimed, it could pay for you to have a look around the house, car or anywhere else you stash Lotto tickets.

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

North Bundy News owner Rolf Fuernsinn said the outlet was celebrating selling another division one winning entry.

“Its great news that one of our customers has won division one again!” he said.

“The last time was just after the floods in 2013 when one of our customers won $1 million.

“It’s exciting to think one of our customers is a new millionaire and we can’t wait for them to find out.  We’re asking everyone coming into the store whether they had an entry in the weekend’s draw.”

The six winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3727 on Saturday 8 April 2017 were 25, 38, 3, 32, 27 and 7.  The supplementary numbers were 28 and 21.
