Someone in West Sussex could be a Euromillions millionaire – without even knowing it.
Every week, EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker guarantees to create four millionaires – two on Tuesday and two on Frida. But one of the lucky winners from the draw on Friday, March 10, has yet to claim their prize.
Players in the Arun are being urged to check and double-check their unique EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker code for the chance to become an instant millionaire.
The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, which was bought in the Arun district. For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket. The winning code on Friday, March 10, for this prize was XGRQ 43149 and the lucky ticket-holder has until September 6, 2017, to claim their prize1.
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 EuroMillions 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.”
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, over £30 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week.
With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket. Anyone who has any queries or who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0844 338 7551 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
