A lottery prize worth more than £1.3m bought in Carlisle is still unclaimed.
National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets for the chance to claim a prize worth £1,388,344.
The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, bought in Carlisle, who matched five main numbers and the bonus ball in the special £20M Lotto ‘Must Be Won’ draw on May 22.
The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 9, 20, 41, 43, 46, 48 and the Bonus Ball was 7. The lucky ticket-holder has until November 18 to claim their prize.
In a Lotto ‘Must Be Won’ draw, if the jackpot isn’t won, the prize amount is shared out amongst the other prize tiers, meaning lots of players could win lots more.
Camelot’s 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.
“In the special £20M Lotto ‘Must Be Won’ draw, one lucky ticket-holder, who would normally have won £1m for matching five main numbers and the bonus ball, has had their prize boosted as no ticket-holder matched all six numbers to scoop the jackpot. Now all this lucky winner needs to do is check their ticket and claim this amazing prize.
“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.”
The National Lottery is encouraging everyone to check their tickets online at national-lottery.co.uk or by downloading the National Lottery app, and to buy or check their tickets in retail in line with government guidance.
Playing online via the website or app means that your ticket is checked, and you get an email notification if you win a prize. You can also scan your retail tickets on the National Lottery app to check if you’re a winner.
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.
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 0333 234 5050 or email [email protected]
