The major prize draw was held on Sunday night (Jan 6), with winning ticket number 38476 for the top prize – a semi-detached “townhouse” at The Wish 3 housing estate in Pa Khlok – being drawn.
The winner, 27-year-old Pantipa Choosuk, presented herself – and her winning ticket – at the Phuket Regional Blood Centre (PRBC) at 10 am today (Jan 8).
The prize will be officially handed over to the winner at an event to be held at 10am Thursday next week (Jan 17).
“I was so surprised. I never thought that I would have this chance,” Ms Pantipa told The Phuket News.
“My boyfriend, Peeradon Kwansansit, bought two tickets and gave this one to me,” she said.
“I think that I will be moving into the house soon after next Thursday,” she added.
Meanwhile, a staffer at the PRBC this morning called on all other winners to come forward and claim their prizes.
“So far no one else has presented themselves with their winning tickets to collect their prizes, even though we published the winning number s after the draw on Sunday,” the staffer, who asked not to be named, said
