TAB Winners Still To Come Forward

Tuesday 18 June 2001

Two lucky TAB customers have won a Philips Home Cinema system and more than 20 others have won $1,000 cash – but they may not know it.

They are winners in the TAB’s $4 Wheel Deal promotion but are yet to come forward to claim their prize. Anyone who puts on a bet of $4 or more at the TAB this June goes into the draw to win:

- Two daily $1,000 cash draws
- Six bonus prizes of a Philips Home Cinema system, worth $4,000 each
- All Black Christian Cullen’s Ford Falcon XR6 or $50,000 cash.

“We’ve had 14 cash winners come forward to claim their prize as well as one of the bonus winners,” TAB spokesperson Joe Locke said.

“But there are more than 20 other cash winners as well as two Philips Home Cinema winners still out there.”

Joe Locke said a full list of the winning tickets and where they were sold is listed on the TAB’s website,, as well as on Teletext page 610.

“Hopefully, the winning tickets are buried in jacket pockets, wallets and purses and haven’t been thrown away,” Joe Locke said.

People have until Friday July 6 to claim their prize. All winning tickets will then go into the draw on July 7 to win Christian Cullen’s car.
