Computer problems prevented people from buying their tickets
Do you play Lotto 6/49?
If you purchased a ticket in Moncton for the Oct. 12, 2011 draw now is the time to make sure all of your tickets have been validated.
Why? There’s $1-million on the line!
As with all of Atlantic Lottery‟s draw tickets, players have 365 days from the draw date to claim their prize.
A huge Atlantic 49 prize of $1-million from that Wednesday night draw last October remains unclaimed - and time is a ticking, with roughly two weeks remaining to claim the prize.
“It‟s always very exciting to award a prize of this magnitude, so, we’re continuing to spread the word in hopes that the owner of this ticket will come forward to claim their prize,” says Jean-Marc Landry, category manager with Atlantic Lottery.
It is extremely rare that prizes go unclaimed – especially prizes of this size.
Last fiscal year Atlantic Lottery awarded $362-million in prizes to players, with only 1.2 per cent of total prizes available going unclaimed.
