Time running out for lottery winner

THE race is on to find a 7.05 million yuan (US$1.13million) lottery winner before the deadline of June 30. Shanghai Welfare Lottery Center said it has opened a 24-hour hotline for the winner to claim the jackpot.

"If the winner contacts us, we will have staff to help him or her to claim the money immediately," said Wang Yulin, an official with the center.

The center said the winning ticket was sold on May 2 on Yanji Road M. in Yangpu District. But more than a month has passed and the winner has not come forward.

Under China's lottery management regulations, a prize must be claimed within 60 days of the winning number is drawn.

The winner can cash out the winning ticket at the Shanghai Welfare Lottery Center at 321 Sichuan Road M. The money will be given to the social welfare fund if not claimed in time.

In June 2011, a 10-million-yuan lottery prize went to the city's social welfare fund as the winner failed to show up.
