Are you a millionaire?
Halldóra María Einarsdóttir, the head of marketing at Íslensk Getspá, says it is unusual for it to take so long to identify lottery winners. Usually, they get in touch within several days. “We’ve been doing well at getting winnings paid out and we therefore call on people to look closely. Winners have a year in which to claim their money,” Halldóra says. “Several years ago, the time was running out and we had been searching for a winning ticket with a high value for a long time. That ticket was bought in a rural town and everyone was asked to look for it. In the end it was found and we were able to pay the winner their millions.”
Halldóra says it takes four weeks after a draw for payments to be made. The missing winner could, therefore, receive their money on Monday, if they come forth now.
The person who famously won 1.27 billion krónur last month awoke this morning to a much, much fatter bank balance than when they went to bed last night.
The winning numbers on 12th June were: 17, 25, 28, 29, and 37. The bonus number was 16.
