Dear Santa, where are our Necker Island winners?

Dear Santa, where are our Necker Island winners?

NZ Lotteries is looking for three Necker Island trip winners who are yet to claim their luxury travel packages.

There are fantastic prizes at stake and we want to make sure they get to the rightful winners, says NZ Lotteries Chief Executive Todd McLeay.

"I'm encouraging people to go through pockets, look behind the couch, in the glove box, in the back of your purse, even check under the fridge and clear out the wood box – you never know where you may have stashed those vouchers," he said.

"Necker Island is the location for royalty and rockstars to holiday in. The Necker Island competition was Lotto's most luxurious holiday competition ever with 12 lucky players winning a trip for two to this fantastic resort.

"On top of this amazing trip for two, each of the 12 winners also gets $100,000 cash. What a fantastic Christmas that would make," he said.

"Of the twelve prizes drawn on 20 October, three are still to be claimed. The three unclaimed voucher numbers, stores, and locations are:

Voucher Number Store Location
117093 Cambridge Cards and Copy Centre Cambridge
127210 Woolworths Taupo Taupo
199529 Park Avenue Bookshop Lower Hutt

"All players who purchased a Lotto Triple Dip between Sunday 07 October and 7pm, Saturday 20 October 2007 at any of the above stores should make sure they check their vouchers at any NZ Lotteries' retailer as soon as possible," says Mr McLeay.

Background on Necker Island:

Necker Island is a luxurious private island in the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean and is owned by Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson. The entire island has been secured by NZ Lotteries for this very special prize offer. The prize package includes all flights, transfer costs, food and the full range of beverages. The week's holiday on Necker Island will take place in May 2008. Full details of the prize package can be found in the promotional terms and conditions.
