$3 MILLION goes wanting in NSW – could it be yours?

Wednesday 6 February, 2013 - There is $3 million worth of Monday Lotto prizes still unclaimed in NSW! Are you a rightful winner?

Winning tickets worth $2 million and $1 million were purchased from Gladesville and Plumpton respectively, and the winners have yet to contact NSW Lotteries to claim their windfall.

The $2,000,000 Monday Lotto prize was purchased from Office ‘N’ News, Shop 1 in Gladesville Shopping Village, Gladesville and has now gone unclaimed for one full year after it was won on 23 January 2012.

More recently, the $1,000,000 unclaimed prize was won in this week’s Monday Lotto draw, purchased from Plumpton Marketplace Newsagency, Shop T19 on Jersey Road, Plumpton.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Zoe Knobel said the winners are likely to be totally unaware of their major wins.

“As the mystery owners of these winning tickets did not register their entries to a Players Club card, we have no way of contacting them with the good news,” Ms Knobel said.

“It’s incredible that the $2 million Monday Lotto prize purchased in Gladesville has still not been claimed after one year. If I’d ever purchased Lotto entries from Office ‘N’ News in Gladesville I’d be checking everywhere today in case I’d misplaced that winning ticket.

“I’d be looking in my handbag, the glove box, even under the car seats!”

Ms Knobel said that anyone who thinks they may have the winning ticket should contact NSW Lotteries as soon as possible.

“If you have checked your Monday Lotto numbers and think you may be holding the winning ticket from either Gladesville or Plumpton, ensure that you keep the ticket safe and contact NSW Lotteries as soon as possible to begin the prize claim process.”

Lotto players are encouraged to always register their lottery purchases to a NSW Lotteries Players Club card. Not only does registration ensure your prizes are secure it also ensures you can be contacted directly with news of a big win.
