Old Lottery Tickets – Check and Claim Prizes
Many enquiries are received regarding old lottery tickets – Lotto, Powerball, OZ Lotto and various other old tickets – How to check and claim prizes on them? See the links below. If you hold old tickets unclaimed for decades, it is highly doubtful any claim on them would be successful – you could always try. The Lotteries field in Australia is highly changeable at the moment, and a claim that is validated by one State’s Lottery may be refused by another – check links below to claim prizes.
