FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 25 2015 NEWS 09 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Models to battle for party isle trip DARWINS top bikini models will strut their stuff at Monsoons on Sunday for the Grand Final of this years Miss Ibiza competition. Finalist Tiana Haste said she expected the competition to be hot, with the winner taking home two return tickets to Ibiza and $1000 in prizemoney. Ms Haste, 23, represented the Territory at a national swimsuit modelling competition in Queensland earlier this year, where she finished equal second. She said nearly all the models in Sundays final were a realistic chance of winning the trip to the Spanish party island. I actually had no idea where Ibiza was before the competition, she said. But I looked it up and it looks amazing, the beaches there look absolutely incredible. Finalists have already progressed through a series of heats. At the end of the day its all about having enjoyed yourself up on stage, Ms Haste said. For me the most important thing is to have fun. Organiser Chalotte Carlsen said 10 models will compete in the final. A lot of them have been V8 grid girls or won modelling competitions in the past, she said. She said the competition is expected to bring in hundreds of spectators. She said the competition is one of the most popular nights on Monsoons calendar.

But the biggest monetary prize that remains unclaimed is for $2,136,327.52 from the TattsLotto draw on July 4 this year. The $2 million ticket was purchased in the Victorian town of Sunbury, with a population of more than 33,000, northwest of Melbourne. Tatts Lotteries spokeswoman Elissa Lewis said the most prize money was claimed. Fortunately, it is rare for a division one prize to remain unclaimed for an extended period of time unclaimed prizes are generally for small prize amounts, she said. (Though) we have had customers who havent been able to present their lotto ticket and believe they have won a prize. Some of the excuses they have given include they threw it in the bin by mistake, the dog ate it, their ticket went through the wash or that it blew out the car window. She said the best piece of advice for players was to register their entries to a player card.
