Glen Innes Saturday Lotto winner yet to claim $2.625 million prize!

A Glen Innes resident or visitor won $2.625 million 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 their entry at Schafer’s Glen Innes Newsagency, 276 Grey Street, Glen Innes, to check their ticket and come forward to claim their prize.
 
The entry was one of eight division one winning entries nationally, and one of three in New South Wales, in Saturday’s $21 Million Superdaw, draw 3737 on 13 May 2017.  Each won a division one prize of $2,625,000.
 
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 $2.625 million but not knowing it!  It’s the type of news that could really turn your week around!
 
“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 Glen Innes, check your ticket as you could be $2.625 million 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 Schafer’s Glen Innes Newsagency, 276 Grey Street, Glen Innes.
 
Schafer’s Glen Innes Newsagency owner Guy Schafer said the outlet was eagerly waiting for the mystery winner to come forward and check their ticket.
 
“We’d love to break the news to one of our lucky customers!” she said.
 
“It’s the first division one winner for our store since we took over the business nine years ago. Hopefully it’s the first of many more wins for our customers.”
 
The six winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3737 on Saturday 13 May 2017 were 21, 1, 40, 30, 16 and 35.  The supplementary numbers were 7 and 2.
 
The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 361 so far this financial year, including 102 won by NSW Lotteries customers.
