If you live in the Borough of Newham in London and have an annoying feeling that you’ve forgotten something, maybe you’re the lottery ticket-holder who won £1m on the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle. Wouldn’t that be nice?
But before you dig out your lottery wish-list or turn the house upside down to find your ticket, we’re afraid you’ve missed the claim deadline date. Without wishing to rub salt into your wounds, if you bought a EuroMillions ticket for the 11th September draw in 2012, then it could have been you making the headlines. Yes, you could have posed with a giant cheque and watched your bank balance increase by £1 million.
And the crazy thing is Camelot, the National Lottery organiser, really wanted you to receive your lotto windfall. Here’s what a Lottery spokesperson had to say about the matter: “Unfortunately, I can confirm that the ticket-holder did not come forward within the deadline to claim their prize and has now sadly missed out on this substantial amount of money. To avoid this unfortunate situation happening again, I would urge all National Lottery players to check their tickets on a regular basis.
“We tried very hard to find the ticket-holder, and it’s a real shame that they have missed out, but there is still one winner – the nation. This money, and all the interest earned over the 180 days, will now go to The National Lottery Good Causes – adding to the £29 billion already raised and distributed to over 390,000 individual awards that have benefitted people, communities and projects across the UK.”
Of course one way to ensure you don’t miss out on your lottery fortune in the future is to play EuroMillions online at Lottery24.com.
