Someone in the Murgon area – or maybe a visitor to town – won $2 million in Saturday’s Gold Lotto but they still haven’t come forward to claim their prize.
The mystery South Burnett player held one of the 10 Division One winning entries nationally in the $20 Million Superdraw.
Each entry won a Division One prize of $2 million.
The ticket, which was bought at Robinson’s Murgon News, is unregistered so officials from The Lott have no way of contacting the winner and have to wait for them to come forward.
Murgon News owner John Robinson said he was asking everyone in the region to check their tickets.
“We’re certainly hoping the winner comes forward soon,” he said.
“It would be lovely if it was a local person from around the region. People have been doing it tough here lately so this is such a welcome piece of news.
“We’ve sold a few Division One winning entries over the 47 years we’ve been here, but we haven’t had a win for quite some time, so we’ve broken the drought now.
“Congratulations to our winner!”
The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney said she was eager to confirm the news with the winner and unite them with their multi-million-dollar prize.
“Someone in Murgon could have gone to work this morning with no idea they’ve woken up $2 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 13-18-68 as soon as possible so we can start the prize claim process!”
