The £1million lottery prize has still not been claimed
An incredible lotto prize worth £1,000,000 has yet to be claimed for a ticket purchased in Herefordshire.
National Lottery players are encouraged to check and recheck their tickets for the chance to claim this life-changing prize.
The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, purchased in Herefordshire, which matched five main numbers and the bonus ball in the May 14, 2022 lotto draw. The winning lotto numbers on that date were 12, 15, 21, 24, 39, 50 and the Bonus Ball was 35. The lucky ticket holder has until November 10, 2022 to claim their prize.
Anyone who is not in possession of their ticket, for whatever reason, but who believes they have a legitimate complaint can always make a complaint in writing to Camelot, but this must be within 30 days of the draw.
Andy Carter of Camelot, Senior Advisor to Winners at the National Lottery, said: “We are desperate to find this mysterious ticket holder and unite them with their winnings, this incredible prize could really make a huge difference in someone’s life. ‘a. We urge anyone who has purchased a ticket in this area to re-check their old lotto tickets – the easiest way to do this is to scan your ticket through the national lottery app – and look wherever a missing ticket could hide.
“Try to check in the pockets of clothes, in wallets, bags and the back of the sofa. We have champagne on ice and fingers crossed that the lucky winner shows up to claim their victory.
“We encourage everyone to check their tickets online by downloading the National Lottery app or at national-lottery.co.uk. Players can also purchase and check tickets in retail. Playing online through the app or website means your ticket is verified and you receive an email notification if you win a prize. You can also scan your retail tickets on the national lottery app to check if you are a winner.
If no one presents the winning ticket by the prize claim deadline, the prize money, together with any interest it has generated, will go to National Lottery funded projects across the UK. By playing any National Lottery game, players generate over £30 million every week for National Lottery funded projects. This money helps support everything from the local charity that makes a difference where you live to helping our country’s athletes win medals at the Olympic and Paralympic Games. To date, over £45 billion has been raised for National Lottery good causes, with over 660,000 individual grants awarded.
Thanks to National Lottery players, over £1.2billion is being used by charities and organizations affected by the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, which includes over £600million in support funding from the National Lottery Community Fund which is being used to help groups best placed to support people and communities during the crisis.
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 with questions or who thinks they have the winning ticket for one of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day period should call National Lottery Line on 0333 234 5050 or email [email protected].
