EuroMillions win is left unclaimedMonday September 14th 2009
A EuroMillions win is left unclaimed today and bosses from Camelot, who run the UK National Lottery and the UK side of the EuroMillions, are urging everyone to dig out old tickets and re-check them as they may well hold the ticket for an unclaimed prize of almost £5 million.
The EuroMillions draw, which took place on Saturday 29th August still has a prize of £4,908,817 left to be claimed, for a ticket bought in the Sheffield area. The winning EuroMillions numbers are 9, 18, 34, 37, 39 and 47. So if you bought a lottery ticket for the EuroMillions draw on 29th August, then check your pockets for old tickets or anywhere else you might possibly stash a lottery ticket, you could be the one who is holding the winning ticket and not even know it. The winner has until 25 February 2010 to claim this prize. So check, check and double check those lottery tickets.
Don’t forget the EuroMillions Superdraw that is being drawn this Friday. With a jackpot of £85 million, it is advisable to buy lottery tickets online for this one. Such huge lottery draws always create a frenzied last minute ticket rush at retailers, so it is also advisable to get your lottery tickets for this Superdraw as soon as you can.
Remember this EuroMillions Superdraw does not roll over if there is no jackpot winner. It is simply passed down to the next prize tier, so one way or another, this prize will be won.
