The Atlantic Lottery Corporation is holding a $30-million cheque belonging to some person or persons who purchased a lottery ticket in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The jackpot prize from the Jan. 25 draw remains unclaimed, now four days after the draw.

“As of this morning, we still haven’t heard from the $30 million dollar winners. Of course there’s lots of rumors, but no one has come forward with the ticket yet,” said Atlantic Lottery spokeswoman Tracy Kenney.

“Unfortunately, we’re still waiting but we’re excited and hopefully he, she, they will be in shortly.”

Kenney said there will be a formal presentation of the cheque to the winner or winners when they come forward, likely in St. John’s.

Rumors have reached The Telegram office of winners in Central Newfoundland, Labrador and at G.J. Cahill in St. John’s. No specific names have been stated in association with the regional rumors, while the G.J. Cahill office in St. John’s said there had been no word of a lotto winner there as of 9:30 a.m. today.

Meanwhile, a smaller prize from Friday’s draw, a prize of $400,000, has been claimed in the metro area, by Joe and Colleen Gulliver.

    I also heard a group of workers from Long Hr. Won that good for them,I am sure there are a lot of people got to be contacted before claiming that amount,investors,lawyers etc that's what anyone would do before claiming it.They have to be ready for phone calls from so call family,long time friends and charities.Their lives had just changed and they need to be ready for that.As to where the ticket was sold no big deal if ALC disclose that info.Who knows the ticket could have been bought online.

    I heard a group in Long Hr, ticket purchased on Burin Pen. A to why ALC dont specify where; it adds control and credibility to ensure those that claim the ticket can back up exactly where and when it was purchased. Remember the fraud in ONT, those that ripped people off, could not provide information where they bought the ticket. I think its a great thing ALC does .

    whats the big mystery here; why dont altantic LOTTO just anounce were ticket was sold; they have that information; right to second the ticket was time stamped at location it was sold; say fellow had winning ticket and washed out his clothes; would he have lawsuit because Atlantic LOTTO did not inform people living in area where ticket was sold; (AT WHATEVER STORE); i would say yes......this is very bad policy (THE SECRECY) on part of altantic lotto;....this should be investigated.....if winning ticket is never ever claimed which may be the case.....WHATS GOING ON HERE
