Unclaimed $1.5m lotto ticket sold at Gladstone news agency

GLADSTONE has a new millionaire, and he or she doesn't even know it yet.

Park Street News & Gifts sold a quick pick in Saturday's division one $22 million Lotto Superdraw which has won $1,571,428, the second winning ticket sold at the news agency in three months.

It's now one of the city's luckiest news agencies after it sold a winning ticket worth $1.1 million on March 20.

Aaron Cameron, co-owner of the business, said he waited three years before sell a winning ticket, but it's exciting they are now rolling in and he hopes they keep coming.

He said a much wider pool of customers throw down a bet in the Superdraw, meaning it could be anyone, including outside of their regular customer base.

"With Superdraws you do get an influx of customers, not your typical person who plays every night," he said.

"But we will be happy if it's a regular customer needing the money.

"There's not many businesses where you can make someone a millionaire overnight, and change their life."

Golden Casket, the news agency chain which Park Street News is a part of, is expected to release more details about the winning ticket shortly.
