Hunt on for EuroMillions and National Lottery winnersWednesday January 5th 2011
UK National Lottery organisers have made a last ditch attempt to find a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle player who won £1million last July. The person has just a matter of hours to make the claim, so officials are urging players to check their tickets now. According to the Luton Herald and Post newspaper, the prize must be claimed today (5) otherwise the money will go to help charities and good causes.
The ticket was bought on July 9, 2010 in Central Bedfordshire and has the winning combination ZSW270497.
The hunt is also on for the owner of a lottery ticket purchased in the Vale of White Horse, Oxfordshire. After deciding to buy lottery tickets, the player went on to match all six winning numbers in the draw on Saturday, December 18.
The owner doesn’t need to rush quite so much though, as they have almost 160 days to come forward and claim their jackpot prize of £956,813.
A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing lottery prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life.”
