$1 million prize unclaimed
IF YOU live in Casino and you haven’t checked your message bank lately, you better do it because you might find a message from NSW Lotteries letting you know you are $1 million richer.
NSW Lotteries has been trying to phone a registered Lotto player who purchased their ticket at the Barkers Street Newsagency, Casino, to tell them they won Wednesday night’s draw, but they can’t get them on the phone.
Newsagency owner John Lane said selling the winning ticket was exciting.
“I’d be more excited if it was me who won, but it gives you quite a thrill,” he said.
It was the third time the newsagency had sold a winning Lotto ticket.
Mr Lane said a $1 million winning ticket had been sold 12 years ago and there had been another big win not long after Lotto started in NSW.
Mr Lane said word about the win had spread and people were coming in to the newsagency to check their tickets, but so far none held the winning ticket.
Wednesday’s $2 million Lotto was shared by the Casino winner and a 20-share NSW Lotteries network-wide syndicate, which saw each member win $50,743.
NSW Lotteries is urging all players who purchased their ticket from Barker Street Newsagency to check their entry.
The winning numbers were 4, 16, 23, 30, 36 and 38, with the supplementary numbers 31 and 29.
