“I’ve had a drawer full of unregistered lottery tickets sitting in my desk for years. I was pretty slack about checking them, I just never got around to it for one reason or another.

“I was virtually going to shred them in my shredder but because I was taking some old Instant Scratchies to claim I thought I’d take the other tickets in to be checked as well. So I filled up one of those green recycled supermarket shopping bags with tickets and took them in to NSW Lotteries head office at Homebush Bay on Monday.

“The staff there were wonderful, very helpful. I just told them I had all these old jackpot lottery tickets to be checked and they helped me fill in the form.

“The next day I get the call to say ‘are you sitting down, because we’ve got some good news, one of your tickets has won $100,000’. I’m glad I took notice of the warning to sit down – it’s quite a shock.”

      are you serious goldrush or you just bluffing? Because if is true, then is equivalent to winning the lottery : ) you won your version of Pick5...How are you receiving the news?

      What's your first thought?

        He is just posting a story from a website.

        Hey goldrush, if you live in the UK, what's with all the Australian stories?

          JS9, those are good instincts.  He is posting from an Australia IP.

          Goldrush please update your profile with your correct location.  The only hard and fast requirement here is that you enter a correct country.  There is no requirement to post a city or other more detailed info, but if you do post it, it must be accurate.  (See Rules on left.)
