Sack stuffed with lottery tickets handed to Hague tram driver
A tram operator in the Hague made the surprising discovery of a bag filled with more than 330 Staatsloterij lottery tickets. The driver found the bag thrust into his hands while navigating his Line 17 route near the Kalvermarkt-Stadhuis stop, according to newspaper AD. Many of the lottery tickets had ink scribbled on them. He turned the bag and the tickets over to the HTM, the public transportation firm in the area. If nobody claims the tickets they will be returned to the tram operator. The Staatsloterij currently has a jackpot of 8.1 million euros.
