$200,000 winning ticket unclaimed

A $200,000 winning Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot ticket bought at Yagoona has remained unclaimed for two years.

The first prize winning ticket was bought at Yagoona Newsagency and drawn on April 15, 2019.
It is one of eight currently unclaimed division one and major lottery prizes across NSW worth $7.8 million.
These winning tickets were not registered to a player card or an online account, so lottery officials have no way of identifying or contacting the mystery winners to unite them with their prize.
The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney said lottery players had six years to claim their division one prizes but hoped no one would wait that long to come forward.
She has urged players to keep their eyes peeled for any old tickets they might find around the home, car or office.
“From old shopping bags and fridge doors, to car gloveboxes and sock drawers, Aussies certainly have a history of storing winning lottery tickets in weird and wonderful places,” she said.
“We’ve had past division one winners come forward months and even years after the draw after finding an old ticket in the back of a drawer, in the central console of their car, and at the bottom of their handbag.”
Ms Cooney said it makes sense to register your entry to a player card or online account.
“We’re in the business of paying prizes and should you win big, you’ll want us to be able to reach out to you with the winning news,” she said.
