Search on for Coast's latest instant millionaire
A MILLION dollar Christmas present via a Gold Lotto ticket purchased in Bli Bli has yet to be claimed.
Golden Casket is yet to hear the winning scream of delight from the Wednesday Gold Lotto player who purchased their entry at NewsExtra Bli Bli on David Low Way.
The Sunshine Coast entry was one of two division one winning entries nationally in Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3725 yestereday. Each took home the guaranteed division one prize of $1m.
As the winning entry was not registered to a Winners Circle card, Golden Casket officials have no way to contact the winner to deliver the dream-come-true-news. Instead, they must wait for the ticketholder to check their ticket and come forward to claim their prize.
Golden Casket spokesperson Matt Hart said he was eager to confirm the division one news with the Sunshine Coast's newest millionaire and urged all Wednesday Gold Lotto players to check their tickets as soon as possible.

"Our winner could be on holidays over the festive season and relaxing at a beach nearby completely unaware they are now a millionaire. I'm sure the news would really kick start their new plans," he exclaimed.
"You may not think it's possible that you are the division one winner we're looking for, but if you purchased an entry in Wednesday's Gold Lotto 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 division one winning ticket to contact Golden Casket on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize."
