“There is still no one com­ing to claim the prize. We’re so wor­ried!”

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - WORD MATTERS -

So said a ven­dor at No.105 lot­tery shop near the Si­jiqing Bi­tongyuan com­mu­nity in Haid­ian dis­trict. On Septem­ber 6, the of­fi­cial draw date of the dou­ble-color ball lot­tery, five peo­ple from across China won first prize, with the high­est prize at 8.63 mil­lion yuan ($1,238,821). One of the win­ners is a Bei­jing res­i­dent who bought a ticket at No.105 lot­tery shop. How­ever, over the month past, the win­ner has not shown up to claim their prize. Ac­cord­ing to the shop as­sis­tant, if no­body claims the prize, it will be­come in­valid 60 days af­ter the of­fi­cial draw. (Source: Bei­jing Youth Daily)
