Russian State Lottery Searching for $2.8 Million Jackpot Winner

Russian state-run lottery Gosloto said on Friday that the winner of an 87-million ruble (2.8 million) jackpot has still not put himself on the map. The lottery finds it significant to say that the winner has 180 days to claim his prize.

      The winner, a resident of the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, probably bought the lucky ticket just a few hours before the December 1 drawing, in a popular electronics hypermarket.

      “We hope the winner’s silence is not linked to shock caused by this happy turn of events,” Gosloto's representatives said in a press release.

      Earlier this week, a EuroMillions $102 million jackpot went unclaimed in the United Kingdom when the deadline expired on December 5. It is thought to be the biggest unclaimed lottery prize in history.
