UPDATE: Officials desperate to contact Gympie millionaire
Update: Authorities are desperately trying to contact a Gympie lotto winner.
While the winning entry is registered, Golden Casket's attempts to deliver the news as been unsuccessful.
Golden Casket's matt Hart said the winner could very well be on holiday or on the beach or shopping.
"You may not think it is possible that you are the winner we're looking for but if you have purchased a ticket and not checked it you are in with a chance," he said.
"We are urging all players to check their entries as soon as possible and if you discover you are holding the registered division one ticket, contact Golden Casket on 131 868."
Before: SOMEONE in Gympie is now a millionaire and may not even know it.
While most in Gympie today are starting their countdown to midnight tonight, the holders of the 21 winning Saturday Lotto Megadraw entries can start counting their cash after choosing the six winning numbers and winning their share of $30 million.

The ticket was purchased from NewsXpress Gympie on Mary St.
