SOMEONE who purchased their Saturday Gold Lotto entry in Noosaville is going to get a great surprise when they discover it has won a division one prize.

That ticket is now worth $428,098.10.

Golden Casket is waiting for the owner of the registered division one winning Gold Lotto entry from Saturday Gold Lotto draw number 3181 to come forward and claim their prize.

Public relations manager Elissa Lewis said it was possible the winner was completely unaware of their windfall and that they are carrying the equivalent of $428,000 cash in a wallet or hand bag.

"The entry was registered to a Winners Circle card, however we have not been able to get in contact with the winner to let them know the amazing news," Ms Lewis said.

"If you purchased an entry in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3181 from Noosaville Village News, we suggest you keep your ticket in a safe place and have it checked at a Golden Casket outlet as soon as possible.

"You could be starting 2012 more than $428,000 richer."

Noosa Village News owner Greg Hales said he is thrilled to have sold the division one winning entry - the first in eight years.

"As a Noosa business owner, I hope that this is the start of things to come," Mr Hales said.

"And that there will be many more division one winning entries sold from my outlet."

There were 10 division one winners nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3181.

Four of these came from Queensland, three from Victoria, and three from West Australia.

The winning numbers were 19, 28, 13, 18, 23 and 16 with supplementaries 37 and 8.
