Check your tickets Moranbah: someone is walking around $15 million richer
It’s likely a Moranbah resident or visitor to the town has woken up this morning and gone about their day as normal without checking their Oz Lotto ticket and discovering they’re $15 million richer.
The Central Queensland player held the only division one winning entry nationally in Oz Lotto draw 1361 on Tuesday 17 March 2020, taking home $15 million.
The ticket is unregistered, so we have no way of contacting the winner and have to wait for them to come forward to claim their prize.
The multi-million-dollar winning entry was purchased at Moranbah Newsagency, 3 Griffin Street, Moranbah.
Moranbah Newsagency owner John King said he was hoping the winner came forward soon.
“It’s incredible to know someone in our community has won this life-changing prize,” he said.
“We have a shop full of people waiting to check their tickets so hopefully we find this winner soon!”
The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney said she was eager to confirm the news with the winner and unite them with their prize.
“Someone in Moranbah could have gone to work this morning with no idea they’ve woken up $15 million richer,” she said.
“Just imagine planning all the ways you could enjoy that prize!
“Make sure you check your wallet, handbag, fridge door, or anywhere else you may have stored your tickets. Previous winners have found valuable tickets in all sorts of places.
“If you discover you’re holding the winning ticket, hold on tight to it and phone 131 868 as soon as possible so we can start the prize claim process!
“While we wait for our winner to come forward, it’s a great reminder to players to register their tickets to a Winners Circle card so we can call then directly if they win a major prize.”
