Griffith's Saturday Lotto winner yet to claim prize!

A Griffith resident or visitor won more than a quarter of a million dollars on the weekend in Saturday Lotto, but has yet to discover the happy news for themselves.
 
NSW Lotteries is waiting for the mystery winner, who purchased a ticket at Griffin Plaza Newsagency, Griffin Plaza, Cnr Yambil & Crossing Streets, Griffith, to check their ticket and come forward to claim their prize.
 
The entry was one of 15 division one winners nationally, and one of three in New South Wales, in Saturday Lotto draw 3731 on 22 April 2017.  Each won a division one prize of $271,775.57.
 
The winning ticketholder is urged to contact NSW Lotteries as soon as possible on 131 868 to begin the prize claim process.
 
NSW Lotteries spokesperson Matt Hart said the division one winning ticket had not been registered to a Players Club Card so officials had no clues or contact details for the winner.
 
“We all know the start of a new week can be a busy time as people head back to work and their daily lives.  Somewhere out there is our mystery winner who could have forgotten to check the Saturday Lotto ticket they bought,” he said.
 
“Imagine winning a quarter of a million dollars but not knowing it!  It’s the type of news that could really turn your week around – especially on a Monday!
 
“We’re putting the call out to help track down our mystery winner and share the happy news with them.  The winning ticket may have been stashed away for safekeeping in the car, the kitchen or even the sock drawer!
 
“If you purchased an unregistered entry in Saturday Lotto in Dubbo, check your ticket as you could be a quarter of a million dollars richer!”
 
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 division one winning entry was purchased from Griffin Plaza Newsagency, Griffin Plaza, Cnr Yambil & Crossing Streets, Griffith.
 
Griffin Plaza Newsagency owner Manjit Lally said the outlet was eagerly waiting for the mystery winner to come forward and check their ticket.
 
“How exciting!  We’d love to break the news to one of our lucky customers!” he said.
 
“It’s our first division one winner since taking over the store last year!”
 
The six winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3731 on Saturday 22 April 2017 were 30, 13, 11, 18, 24 and 21.  The supplementary numbers were 15 and 27.
