Clock ticking for Gladesville ticket holder to claim $2 million lotto prize

A NSW Lotteries player who bought a ticket in Gladesville and won $2 million in Monday & Wednesday Lotto five years ago has just 12 months remaining to come forward and claim the prize before their win expires.

Despite numerous appeals for the unregistered winner to come forward, no one has claimed the division one windfall that was won on Monday 23 January 2012.

The winning ticket was sold at Office ‘N’ News in Gladesville Shopping Centre, Flagstaff Street, Gladesville. The winning numbers for Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3106 on 23 January 2012 were: 41, 25, 39, 17, 38 and 10, with the supplementary numbers 2 and 44.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Matt Hart said time was running out for the winner to come forward as NSW Lotteries players have six years to claim their lottery prizes.

“We’re making one last annual appeal on the fifth anniversary of the win for anyone who may have bought a ticket in Gladesville in early 2012 to check any old tickets they may have lying about the house,” he said.

“Our mystery winner could be someone who lived in Gladesville at the time of the draw, or was just visiting Gladesville Shopping Centre and decided to take a chance and purchase an entry.

“$2 million is a life changing amount of money and something NSW Lotteries players would love to get their hands on. If that were me, I’d be checking all the drawers, down the back of the couch, the car glovebox, and anywhere else I may have stashed a ticket five years ago.

“It’s rare to have a prize of this size remain unclaimed for so long, but we’re still holding out hope that the winner will come forward so we can unite them with their long-lost prize.”

NSW Lotteries reminds players of the importance of registering their tickets to a Players Club Card so all of their prizes are secure and they can be contacted directly with the good news of a big win.

The Lott’s division one winning entry tally has now reached 233 so far this financial year, including 67 won by NSW Lotteries customers.
