PUNTERS, look in your wallet and under the car seat.

Search behind the couch cushions and check your pockets.

Take extra care when you are doing your laundry and check your coat before you drop it off at the dry cleaners.

Have a look through the yellow bin because...

Pape Fall and Judy Emery of Grafton Lotto Plus in Prince St sold the first prize ticket in the $2 Lucky Lotteries Draw this week and as yet the prize remains unclaimed.

In fact Lotto Plus must be a lucky premises because Pape has 21 gold plates in the shop, one for every time someone has won first prize with a ticket they bought at the shop.

"We're very excited to find out who the winner is," he said

"The Lottery Company rang us to say that we'd sold the winning ticket and I'm looking forward to getting another gold plate."

The draw number was 9743 and first prize is a very tidy $100,000.
