Are you a mystery multi-millionaire? Two National Lottery winners have yet to come forward and claim their multi-million pound prizes. The winning tickets, worth £1.8m and £3.7m, were both purchased in EuroMillions draws on October 4 and 8 respectively.
£3.7m National Lottery Winner
The £3.7m prize was won with a ticket from South Gloucestershire. This ticket matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the October 8 EuroMillions draw. Lottery officials are urging local players in the area to check their tickets. Fortunately, the lucky National Lottery winner has until April 5 2020 to claim their prize. But that’s no reason to linger – £3,696,996.80 is waiting!
The winning EuroMillions numbers on October 8 were 7, 10, 15, 44, and 49, plus Lucky Star numbers 3 and 12.
£1.8m National Lottery Winner
The second National Lottery winner will take home £1,844,973.60 in prize money with a EuroMillions ticket purchased in Dorset. The ticket holder matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the EuroMillions draw on 4 October. The Dorset winner has until April 1 2020 to claim their prize. That’s no April Fool’s joke!
The winning EuroMillions numbers on October 4 were 6, 9, 35, 41, and 44, plus Lucky Star numbers 6 and 9.
Once the EuroMillions jackpot reaches its cap of 190m Euros, players matching the five main numbers and one Lucky Star win bigger prizes in all draws with a jackpot over that cap. Prize money that would otherwise go to boosting the jackpot, will instead go to players in the next winning prize tier.
Missing National Lottery Tickets
In the case of lost or misplaced tickets, National Lottery winners can still make a claim in writing to Camelot. However, it must be within 30 days of the draw. Lottery officials had some great advice for those in search of missing lottery tickets.
“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa – someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune! We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.”
If the prize claim deadline expires without a winning ticket, then the prize money plus interest will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK. The National Lottery changes the lives of individuals as well as communities – around £30M goes toward National Lottery-funded projects every single week!
