Phuket Red Cross winners yet to claim more than B1mn in gold

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: One lucky person has yet to learn that he has won the top prize of 750,000 baht in gold from the lucky draw at the annual Red Cross Fair, which drew to a close on Sunday night.

Even the winner of the second prize has yet to step forward to claim 375,000 baht in gold bars, Sarawut Rukkaw of the Phuket Red Cross told the Phuket Gazette yesterday.

Phuket Governor Maitri Inthusut led the draw for the top prize at 10pm on Saturday at the central stage at Saphan Hin (map here), where the annual fair was held.

The lucky ticket number was 28563.

“The holder of the winning ticket has yet to contact us to claim the prize,” Mr Sarawut confirmed.

“Also yet to be claimed is the second prize – 375,000 baht in gold – to go to the holder of ticket number 36288,” he added.

The third prize of 187,000 baht in gold has been claimed by the holder of ticket number 10128, Mr Sarawut said.

“But organizers will wait until the top two prizes have been claimed before holding a formal handing over of the prizes by Governor Maitri,” he explained.

Some of the fourth-prize winners have already stepped up to claim their one gold bar valued at 37,500 baht.

“The winning ticket numbers were 30583, 29046 and 32661,” Mr Sarawut said.

The 30 winning tickets for the fifth-prize of gold necklaces, valued at 4,700 baht, were given as: 39686, 41126, 40812, 43720, 55120, 30126, 34035, 38389, 19620, 44712, 30409, 14138, 32310, 54999, 32350, 55255, 30758, 58980, 36308, 37117, 19982, 38862, 57602, 34401, 57476, 14611, 31774, 18389, 39966 and 53818.

“The lucky three-digit number was 379. Anyone who holds a ticket ending with 379 may claim the prize of an electric fan. Winners have until February 28 to claim their prizes,” Mr Sarawut said.

To claim a prize, winners may present themselves and the winning ticket at Phuket Provincial Hall (map here), the Phuket Red Cross office (map here), or any District Office in Phuket during office hours.
