Lotto millions still unclaimed

Posted: 10am 15 Jun 2021

Lottery players are being urged to check old tickets as there are 10 unclaimed division one and major lottery prizes in Queensland worth $7.4 million - and one is from the Moreton Bay Region.

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.

The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney said lottery players in the sunshine state had seven years to claim their division one prizes but hoped no one would wait that.

Morayfield winner

“The oldest division one winning entry we have unclaimed in Queensland is a Saturday Gold Lotto prize worth $1 million from a draw in June 2015,” she explained.

“This ticket was purchased at Nextra Morayfield Village in Morayfield and we haven’t heard a peep from this winner in six years. They have just one more year to claim their prize.

“More recently, we have an unclaimed $1 million Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto prize from just last week.

Unclaimed millions

“This division one winning entry was purchased at news extra Mossman in far north Queensland and we are certainly hoping to speak to this person soon.”

Ms Cooney said Queensland lottery players were being urged 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.

Years later

“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.

“With more than $7.8 million waiting to be united with their rightful winners, it’s worth checking any old lottery tickets you might come across! You can check your tickets at any licenced lottery outlet, online at or via The Lott app.”

Ms Cooney said the list of unclaimed prizes was a great reminder for players grabbing an entry into this weekend’s Saturday Lotto $20 Million Superdraw to register their 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.
