Lottery ticket holder urged to claim prize

http://www.dreamstime.com/-image4295942A $ 270,000 lottery prize is still waiting to be claimed and the Dominica National Lottery (DNL) is urging the holder of the lucky ticket to come forward.

The lucky Super Six ticket was bought in a shop at Grand Bay since November 2014, Sales and Marketing Representative of DNL Ken George has said.

“We at the Dominica National Lottery are sending a plea to the general public with interest and lottery players to pay close attention to their ticket of various games. We are particularly interested in the winner of the super six games of $270,000 that was won on the 14th of November 2014 and has not presented their winning ticket,” he stated.

George said that the winner has 90 days (3 months) to claim the prize, but he pointed out that it should be redeemed the soonest.

“While the winner has 90 days to present their winning ticket, it is our responsibility to encourage the playing public to kindly redeem their tickets at the earliest,” he pointed out.

George added that for such a sum to be lost in the “current economic climate” would be sad.

    You only give three months to claim the prize? This is not much time.
    It is not me as much as I wished it were so. I am too far away! :lol:
    Yes! It would be sad indeed if the person is unaware that the ticket is a winning one or that it is lost. Probably the person is making plans to leave Grand Bay or the area where he/she resides prior to claiming the prize. I hope the person is OK, alive and is in D/ca and the ticket was not thrown away by mistake.
    What if the person is overseas? You should give some concessions for that. It should not be a loss for the winner.
    I heard on the News today, Sunday that someone bought a winning ticket worth millions in either Ontario or the rest of Canada (did not hear the place) almost a year ago. The person has a few days to claim the winning prize. Otherwise the money will remain with the Lottery Corporation. I do not think it is me. If I purchase tickets I usually check them the same evening or the following day or during the week. We have one year to claim any prize.
    I hope this person in Dominica shows up to claim his/her prize. We are all looking forward to hearing about it and who is that fortunate person and to wish him/her good luck. :)

    The person has up till 3 months to claim their cash so the person it just allow things to lay low for the moment before claiming.
    What would be the outcome if no one comes forward to claim?

    The winner, a downtrodden, brainless voter, was putting Justina before self in the heat of the campaign and the ticket disparu. Now, if the person does not find it, then it means the red clinic is a better option than to having your own.

      For you: Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “What will it profit a man to gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul for all eternity?”
      If you are indeed a rich Barbadian (I wonder), I hope you do not live a selfish life and that you assist the poor, those who are really in need of. Do some good with the money. I hope you did not bilk others by getting rich.
      It was also stated in Holy Scripture: “Tell the rich in this present age to do good so as to amass spiritual wealth.” The Word of the Lord. Take good note.

      It depends how long ago the person bought the ticket. It crossed my mind, I wonder if it was a visitor who bought the ticket and has since left Dominica? We hope the person comes forth to claim the prize.
