I truly believed I had a winning ticket back in 2006!! I know the place I bought it the year roughly the month but sadly I can almost c me throw out the not checked ticket!! It was a system 7 and can roughly remember the numbers !! I remember reading in paper this outlet being an unclaimed prize I believe 2 million !! I guess there is nothing I can do ??it is a lesson learned maybe I just was never meant to have the monies but hope others get their unclaimed winning ??


When I click “full result” for any lotteries in the super jackpot 2015 or 2016 .. it simply opens a box stating the date .. ie no results for said lotteries is displayed

I have just found a SA Lotto ticket in a card I sent my Mum in Victoria in 2006-I have tried entering the numbers on the ticket but there is more than 11. Is there any other way I can check? Thank you. Jan


Hi, I’ve found some old tickets that I have tried checking online but it keeps coming back as unknown. I’m hoping that I can still check and claim. Some of the tickets are from back in 2005. How else can I check them.
