The National Lottery is asking Southwark players of the EuroMillions to check their pockets as a winning ticket bought in the borough has yet to be claimed.
The hunt is on for the lucky winner of the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker after a winning ticket was drawn on October 25.
Players in Southwark are now being urged to double-check if their codes match JMDB 77565 – while it is valid till April 23 2017.
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.
“Being able to guarantee all these UK millionaires every week with EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker is fantastic and we’re urging everyone who bought a EuroMillions ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding, so that this prize can turn someone into the newest member of the lottery millionaire club.
“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.”
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 before Thursday November 24.
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, call the National Lottery Line on 0844 338 7551 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
