Appeal for Lotto Millionaire Raffle Winner to Make Claim
Updated: Thursday 23rd June 2016
Lottery organisers in the UK have made an appeal for an unknown Lotto player to make their claim for a prize of £1 million. The prize was landed in the Lotto Millionaire Raffle game on Wednesday 8th June, when the winning number was GOLD 8209 7080, and the lucky winner has until Monday 5th December to come forward. If that doesn’t happen, the £1 million will be added to the fund for Good Causes, and the winner will forfeit their right to the money.
Every entry purchased for the main Lotto draw automatically gives its owner an entry into the associated Lotto Millionaire Raffle game, and we can report that the winning entry in this instance had been purchased on the Isle of Anglesey & Gwynedd. Players who have bought a ticket in that area are advised to check and double check their entries, and to look around to see if they have placed the winning entry in a pocket, wallet, handbag or similar safe place and then forgotten about it.
‘We’re eager to find the mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life,’ said an official lottery spokesperson. ‘We’re urging everyone who bought a Lotto ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.
‘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.’
There are several seven-figure lottery prizes that are currently waiting to be claimed, including another Lotto Raffle prize of £1 million (purchased in the East Staffordshire District) which expires today. Other areas where winning entries have yet to be claimed include Preston, the London Borough of Newham, Glasgow City, the Isle of Wight and South Gloucestershire, to mention just a few. This being the case, lottery players everywhere who have purchased a ticket in the last six months should take some time to see if they have a winning entry tucked away somewhere.
Those of you who find an old ticket can quickly check to see if it is a winner by using one of our free Lottery Checkers. Those will show you all of the results of your chosen game for the last 180 days, which is the maximum amount of time that players have to make a claim, and if you do discover a winner, be sure to call the claims number on the reverse of your ticket without delay.Published: Thursday 23rd June 2016
