National Lottery: Time is running out to collect unclaimed £1m lotto prize

National Lottery players are being urged to check and double check their tickets after the winner of £1m prize failed to come forward.

The search is now on for the mystery prize-winner, who matched five main numbers and the bonus ball in the Lotto draw on 24 November 2018.

The winning ticket was bought in Birmingham – but time is running out for them to collect the windfall.

They have until 23 May 2019, Birmingham Live reported .

The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 15, 27, 30, 32, 42, 43 and the bonus ball was 10.

Earlier this week, a Euromillions jackpot winner came forward to claim their prize worth £76million.           

The lucky winner had bought their ticket in the Boston and Skegness area for the draw on Friday, November 2

The new-look Lotto draw has seen bigger cash prizes on offer across the board and all winners in the five plus the bonus ball prize tier are now guaranteed millionaires.

Anyone not in possession of their ticket, for whatever reason, but who believes they have a genuine claim can still make a claim in writing to Camelot, but it must be within 30 days of the draw.

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

The National Lottery changes the lives of individuals as well as communities – players raise, on average, around £30 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week.

Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings, this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life.

“We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old Lotto tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding, so that this prize can turn someone into the newest member of the lottery millionaire club.

“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa.

"We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.”
