Jingle Bells promotion deadline is Friday, Jan. 4
The clock is ticking (jingling in this case).
Check those tickets!
The number one $5,000 Jingle Bells ticket holder has not yet come forward to claim the prize, nor have five of those holding the first tickets drawn for the 11 $500 prizes, as of Thursday morning.
Friday, Jan. 4 at 12:01 p.m. all remaining Jingle Bells prizes will be awarded, unless the number one ticket holder - or simply a higher number in some cases - comes forward before that date and time.
Each prize has a ticket holder who's registered. But for the 10th $500 prize, for example, it's the person holding the sixth ticket drawn.
The $5,000 winning Jingle Bells number is 3756484. The person holding the second number drawn for the prize has registered and will claim it Friday, unless first place arrives at the Chamber.
Ticket holders for two and three have stepped forward.
Tickets four - 6909301 - and five - 8344150 - both have second winning number ticket holders hoping to claim the loot.
Six has been claimed. Seven has the third spot registered. Ticket number one for the seventh $500 prize is 8578731; number two ticket is 8513998.
Ticket eight has the second holder waiting in the wings; first number is 8440712.
Nine has been claimed.
And the 10th ticket - 8660471 - has the sixth ticket holder counting the days. Second number drawn for the prize was 8614352, third is 8486972.
The 11th ticket holder claimed the prize.
