UPDATE, 4PM: Hervey Bay has cemented its place as one of hot-spots for big lotto wins.
Golden Casket narrowed the state-wide search for Queensland’s $30 million winner to Hervey Bay late this afternoon, sparking even more interest in the win.
The $30 million win is the second division one win to land in the Fraser Coast region during the past five days.
On the weekend, a retired Hervey Bay woman won $1.6 million in the Saturday Gold Lotto $20 Million Superdraw.
UPDATE, 11AM: Golden Casket narrowed the state-wide search for Queensland’s mystery millionaire to the Fraser Coast.
The Fraser Coast region also holds the record for having sold Australia’s single biggest individual lottery win. In January, 2016, Hervey Bay grandparents won the $70 million division one Powerball jackpot prize.
The couple won the entire jackpot prize.

Golden Casket has urged all Queenslanders to check their tickets.
“It’s hard to believe, but someone out there woke up this morning a multi-millionaire – but they may not know it yet!” Golden Casket spokesperson Matt Hart 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 Queensland 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.”
