Check your tickets Pittsworth: new mystery millionaire at large!
One Pittsworth shopper became a millionaire in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw, but may not even know it yet.
The mystery Queensland winner held one of the two division one winning entries across Australia in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3697 on Wednesday 20 September 2017. Each won the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.
The winning ticketholder is urged to contact Golden Casket as soon as possible on 131 868 to begin the prize claim process.
The search for the newly-minted Pittsworth millionaire comes as Golden Casket outlets are experiencing a surge of traffic today as customers line up for an entry in today’s out-of-this-world $50 million Powerball draw.
Golden Casket spokesperson Matt Hart said the Pittsworth division one winning entry had not been registered to a Winners Circle card so officials had no clues or contact details for the winner.
“If you bought an entry in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto in Pittsworth, there’s more than a million reasons why it would pay to check, and double check, your entry,” he said. “Imagine winning more than a million dollars but not knowing it!
Discovering you’re a new millionaire is bound to change your plans for the rest of the week. “We’re putting the call out to help track down our mystery winner and share the happy news with them. The winning ticket may have been stashed away for safekeeping in a wallet, the car glovebox or be hiding in plain sight on the fridge door!”
The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3697 on Wednesday 20 September 2017 were 17, 13, 5, 24, 37 and 26. The supplementary numbers were 28 and 40.
Across Australia there were two division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3697 – one from Queensland and one from South Australia.
Last financial year, there were 82 division one winning Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto entries across the Lott’s jurisdictions, which collectively won more than $80 million.
