One Brisbane shopper is now Set for Life after winning the coveted First Prize, but has yet to discover the life-changing news they’ll now receive $20,000 a month for the next 20 years.
The Queensland winning entry won the First Prize in Set for Life draw 884 on Saturday 6 January 2018, however Golden Casket’s attempts to contact the registered ticketholder have so far been unsuccessful.
Golden Casket is urging anyone with an entry in last Saturday’s Set for Life draw to check their entries as soon as possible and if your phone is ringing answer it!
The weekend’s Set for Life winner is the fifth First Prize winner to land in Queensland during the past six months, and the 29th First Prize winner nationally since the game began.
The winning entry was purchased at Nextra Toombul News & Megabooks, Shop 14-17, Toombul Shopping Town, 1015 Sandgate Road, Toombul.
It’s the third major prize won during the past seven months from an entry purchased at Nextra Toombul News & Megabooks.
In June 2017, one of its customers won $6 million in Powerball, while another won more than $1.4 million less than a fortnight ago in Saturday Gold Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw on 30 December 2017.
While Golden Casket will continue trying to deliver the life-changing news, residents and visitors in the Brisbane region are urged to check their Set for Life tickets as soon as possible.
Golden Casket spokesperson Matt Hart said he was eager to confirm the First Prize win with the nation’s newest Set for Life so they could start receiving their $20,000 a month for the next 20 years.
“Our winner could be completely unaware that Golden Casket is trying to contact them with the dream come true news. I’m sure they’d love to discover they are now Set for Life!” he exclaimed.
“You may not think it’s possible that you could be the registered First Prize winner we’re unable to contact, but if you purchased a registered entry in Saturday’s Set for Life draw that you haven’t checked yet, you’re in with a chance!
“We’re urging all players to check their entries as soon as possible and if you discover you are holding the registered First Prize winning ticket to contact Golden Casket on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize.”
