$1 million Tweed Lotto win unclaimed

A TWEED person could be a millionaire and not know it after an entry purchased at Tweed City News hit jackpot during Monday night’s Lotto draw.

But just who won the magic amount to blast away the winter blues remains a mystery, as the division one winner didn’t register their Monday Lotto entry on a NSW Lotteries Players Club card.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Belinda McDougall said the new millionaire purchased their division one winning entry from the newsagents inside the Tweed City shopping centre in Tweed Heads South.

“We’re eager to hear from our newest millionaire, so anyone who purchased an unregistered Monday Lotto ticket in Tweed heads South should check it immediately because they could be a new millionaire,” Ms McDougall said.

“As the ticket was purchased in an area that is popular with tourists, it’s possible the mystery winner could be a holiday maker.

“You may not think it’s possible that you could be the mystery millionaire, but if you had an unregistered entry in last night’s draw that you haven’t checked, you’re in with a chance.”

This is the second big win so far this year for the Tweed City outlet - which sold a $2 million division one winning entry in January.

It is the third millionaire winner for the Tweed in the eight months, after a Banora point truck driver snared $2.34 million in a Keno jackpot at Twin Towns Juniors last October.

“We’re urging all Monday Lotto players to check their ticket as soon as possible and if you discover you are holding the division one winning ticket, contact NSW Lotteries on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize,” Ms McDougall said.

The winning numbers in Monday Lotto draw 3566 were 24, 45, 29, 14, 39 and 35, with supplementary numbers 30 and 16.

NSW Lotteries recommends customers register their entries to a Players Club card.
