IF these are the numbers on your Gold Lotto ticket from Saturday night, you've won yourself $533,755.46.
Staff from Golden Casket have been busy trying to track down the division one winner since Saturday night's draw and were last night still unsuccessful in their attempts.
But the winner is still a mystery to the newsagent that sold the winning ticket.
Kin Kora NewsXpress owner Ian Chapman said it was exciting to sell the ticket.
'It changes the perception of a normal working day, there is a lot of extra happy workers here today,' he said.
'It's not every day you can sell a first division winner.'
In fact, Ian said Saturday's ticket was just the fourth division-one winner from the newsagent in the 27 years it had been open.
But it doesn't mean the store is without its fair share of lucky winners.
He said about six months ago the newsagency sold three division two winners over a number of weeks.
'We also sold a division two winner three weeks ago,' he said.
'So at the moment we think we are a pretty lucky newsagency,' he said.
'It's all pretty exciting, but I would love to see the winner come forward so we can at least congratulate them.'
Golden Casket's media and communications executive Monica Fiumara said although the winner had a Winner's Circle card, the winning numbers were from a Quickpick.
'Golden Casket has been trying to contact the winner since Saturday night, and so far has had no luck,' she said.
