NORTH Mackay Newsagency has drawn their first major division one prize winner after Saturday's Gold Lotto $21 million Superdraw .

Golden Casket are still trying to make contact with the winners from their registered ticket who will be finding out they have won about $1.105 million.

"It's fantastic news," Mark Faulkner said, who owns the newsagency with his Partner Mariann.

There were 19 winners all together who shared the $21 million.

If you are feeling lucky there is a $40 million draw today, $30 million in Powerball on Thursday and $4 million to be won on Saturday.

Golden Casket spokeswoman Belinda McDougall said they are still trying to get in touch with the winner.

"It can take a couple days to get in touch with people because people are busy," she said.  

"They are registered so that's good we know who they are. 

"I'm just waiting to give them the life changing news that they're going to be millionaires' for Easter  

"It makes my day that's for sure."

A Gladstone couple say they are planning a quiet celebration after they too won a division one share worth more than $1.1 million.
