Six Lotto Bonus Prizes Still Unclaimed

Lotteries-Commission

The Lotteries Commission is urging all Lotto players to carefully check their tickets because it has six unclaimed bonus prizes from recent Lotto draws.

All six prizes were determined by the unique serial number of the tickets.

Still unclaimed is a brand new VW Beetle car which was a prize in the New Year's Eve Superdraw (draw number 651). The winning ticket was sold at Botany Downs Pak n Save in Manukau City. The ticket number is 931-65300234-2014.

Another lucky Lotto player also stands to earn $2000 each week for the whole of this year. The player bought their ticket at Swanson Lotto in Henderson for draw number 652 which was held on 5 January, 2000. The ticket number is 936-29519893-2071.

"The prize will of course be backdated to the beginning of the year but we would really like the winner to come forward," Commission spokeswoman Lesley Meadows says. "Once we've confirmed the details of the ticket we can arrange for the money to be deposited each week into their nominated account."

Four Lotto Double Dip players still don't know they've won the trip of a lifetime to watch Team New Zealand race in the America's Cup. All the tickets were sold as part of the Commission's Million Dollar Views promotion.

Each prize for two people also includes a night's accommodation at the Sheraton Hotel in Auckland, dinner and breakfast, some Team New Zealand clothing and $250 spending money.

"The four as-yet unclaimed prizes were all sold in the Auckland area." Ms Meadows says. "The best thing for players to do is to take their tickets into a Lotto outlet for checking. People are used to checking the numbers on their tickets but they're less accustomed to checking the serial numbers. We're keen to find owners for these prizes so are encouraging everyone, especially those in Auckland, to have their tickets checked."

The ticket details are:

Draw 654 on 15 January - ticket number 924-67010855-2045 Sold by Papatoetoe Plaza Lotto, Auckland

Draw 655 on 22 January - ticket number 954-52379930-2026 Sold by Whitcoulls at the domestic terminal, Auckland Airport

Draw 656 on 29 January - ticket number 960-10630933-2086 Sold by Big Fresh Penrose, Auckland

Draw 656 on 29 January - ticket number 961-14430502-2039 Sold by Mahurangi 4 Square, Warkworth

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940.

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
