Jane has a chance to win her share in $30 million tomorrow

IF SHE won big in the $30 million Megadraw Gold Lotto tonight, Toowoomba woman Jane Creevy would have a perfect start to the New Year.

"I always buy a lotto ticket," she said yesterday at South Street Newsagency.

"I've only ever won little things though, nothing too big."

If she won her share in the draw tonight, Ms Creevy said she would take a holiday.

She was one of many Toowoomba residents who rushed into their local newsagents to purchase a ticket in the $30 million Megadraw.

South Street Newsagency owner Robert Reid said the newsagency had been quite busy during the days leading up to the draw.

"We've sold thousands of tickets," he said.

Golden Casket public relations manager Elissa Lewis advised players to purchase their ticket early to avoid disappointment.

"Around one in three Queensland adults already have an entry, however, we expect to see that figure increase to around one in two in the hours leading up to the draw," she said.

She said players had the choice of picking their own numbers or playing a QuickPick, where the lottery terminal randomly selected numbers.

She said the most popular entry type was the Mega QuickPick, which costs $15.80.

If you buy a ticket in the draw, don't forget to register if to your Winners Circle card.

That way Golden Casket will contact you should you be one of the division one winners.

Tickets are currently available at all Golden Casket retailers or online at tatts.com/goldencasket.
