Who is the lucky Roma Gold Lotto winner?

CHECK your pockets, search your glove box and look into the deep dark chasms of your sock drawers for the winning million dollar Gold Lotto ticket purchased at Nextra Roma News.

One lucky Roma News customer has won $1,615,384.62 from an unregistered QuickPick in Saturday night's draw and has yet to come forward to claim the winning prize.

Nextra Roma News owner Gail Henricks said nobody has been in to claim the winning prize.

"Someone has bought a QuickPick for Saturday night's draw and it is unregistered so they probably don't know they have won it," she said.

"I had a feeling someone was going to win a big one because there had been a lot of people winning smaller divisions in the last 12 months and it had been building up.

"Someone from Emerald came through six months ago and won $35,000 and somebody won $10,000 a couple of weeks ago."

Roma News worker Julie Leeson said she hoped it was a local lady that came in last week.

"This lady came in the other day and bought a drink but didn't have enough money to use the eftpos," she said.

"I suggested she buy a QuickPick and she did so I hope it was her."

Gail Henricks said this is the third time somebody has won a big prize at the newsagency.

"Somebody has won $828,000 in the last six years and before that somebody won $1,142,000," she said.

"If anyone has any tickets they haven't checked come into the store because you might just be the winner."
