The hunt is on for the winner of last night’s entire $30 million Oz Lotto jackpot prize, with Golden Casket narrowing the search for the state’s newest multi-millionaire to the Fraser Coast region. 

Earlier this morning Golden Casket revealed a Queensland entry had won the whopping prize but with still no sign of the mystery winner, the region the entry was sold has now been revealed. 

The winning entry, purchased at a Fraser Coast region Golden Casket outlet, was unregistered so the identity of the new multi-millionaire remains a complete mystery. 

The Fraser Coast entry was the only division one winning entry in Oz Lotto draw 1229 on Tuesday 5 September 2017, which offered a jackpot of $30 million – the fifth biggest Australian lottery jackpot so far this year. 

Golden Casket is urging all Fraser Coast region residents and visitors who purchased a ticket in last night’s Oz Lotto draw to check their tickets. 

Golden Casket spokesperson Matt Hart said he was eagerly waiting for Australia’s newest multi-millionaire to make contact so they could start the prize claim process. 

“It’s hard to believe, but someone out there woke up this morning a multi-millionaire – but they may not know it yet!” he said. 

“We can’t wait to confirm this whopping prize with our mystery winner!  Just imagine how $30 million could change your life and the lives of your nearest and dearest. 

“There are 30 million reasons why all Fraser Coast region Oz Lotto players who had an entry in last night’s draw should check their ticket this morning. 

“If you discover you’re holding the division one winning Oz Lotto entry, hold on tight to that ticket and phone 131 868 as soon as possible so that we can start the prize claim process!” 

Golden Casket reminds players of the importance of registering their tickets to a Winners Circle Card so all of their prizes are secure and they can be contacted directly with the good news of a big win. 

Recent division one wins in the Fraser Coast region 

It’s the second division one win to land in the Fraser Coast region during the past five days.  

On the weekend, a Hervey Bay retired woman won $1.6 million in the Saturday Gold Lotto $20 Million Superdraw. 

The woman purchased her winning 12-game QuickPick from Torquay News, 430 The Esplanade, Torquay. 

The Fraser Coast region also holds the record for having sold Australia’s single biggest individual lottery win. In January in 2016, Hervey Bay grandparents won the $70 million division one Powerball jackpot prize.  

The couple won the entire jackpot prize with a 6-game marked entry purchased at newsXpress Eli Waters, Shop 23, 2 Ibis Boulevard in Pialba. 

The winning numbers in Oz Lotto’s $30 million draw 1229 on Tuesday 5 September 2017 were 16, 45, 4, 35, 8, 28 and 27. The supplementary numbers were 22 and 34. 

Last financial year, 18 Oz Lotto winning entries across the Lott’s jurisdictions won more than $182 million.  

The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 291 so far this calendar year, including 78 won by Golden Casket customers.
