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
