$1m winner

ONE lucky Gladstone resident has started the new year more than $1 million richer, but may not even know it yet.

Just two weeks after a Gladstone resident won $533,755 in Saturday Gold Lotto, another resident has scooped a share in the huge prize pool.

Park Street Newsagency and Gifts owner-manager Angela Corones said she received a phone call from "extremely excited'' staff yesterday who told her the store had sold a division one winning ticket in Saturday night's $32 million mega draw.

"We are extremely excited, but we have no idea who has won, and we won't get to find out unless they come in to cash their ticket here,'' she said.

The $32 million jackpot was shared between 28 winners across the country, with just four in Queensland.

They each received 1,142,857.15.

But as yet, the winner of the ticket sold in Gladstone has not come forward and may not even know he or she has won the prize.

"All we know at this stage is that the ticket was sold by us and that it was an unregistered quick pick ticket,'' Angela said.
