Akureyri Sees another Lotto Millionaire

A resident from Akureyri, northeast Iceland, won ISK 23 million (USD 375,000, EUR 255,000) in the national lottery last weekend, but has not come forward to claim his or her prize. In October, another Akureyri resident got lucky when he won ISK 105 million (USD 1.7 million, EUR 1.2 million) in the Nordic lottery.

The main prize was sixfold this weekend and the correct numbers appeared on two tickets so the winning amount was split between the unidentified winner and a young couple with two children from the capital region, ruv.is reports.

A representative from Íslensk getspá, which operates the national lottery, said it is unusual that people don’t call in straight away to claim their winnings, so the new millionaire in Akureyri is likely not aware of his or her luck yet.
