THE UK SEARCHES FOR A EUROMILLIONS WINNER, AS SCOTTISH MILLIONAIRE MISSES OUT
Making a refreshed appeal this week, the UK National Lottery are searching for yet another EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle winner who could be missing out on his or her million pound prize for the simple reason that they forgot to check their ticket.
While most lottery players will know whether they have won a prize simply by checking the winning numbers of their draw, the UK EuroMillions also offers the Millionaire Raffle game, a lucrative way to become a millionaire without even matching the drawn lottery numbers.
This particular winner had a winning raffle number for the special New Year’s Eve EuroMillions draw, when 25 UK raffle winners were created in just one night, each of them winning a life changing £1 million to celebrate the New Year. Players in the Warwick area of the UK are being urged to check their EuroMillions tickets and pay particular attention to their raffle numbers to find out whether they started the New Year as a millionaire.
Lottery officials are desperate to find the mystery winner before the 180 day deadline, to avoid a repeat of the £1 million prize that went unclaimed in Scotland last week.
The winner of the Millionaire Raffle prize in the draw on July 23rd 2013 had until 11pm last Saturday, 18th January 2014, to claim their prize, however the National Lottery confirmed that whoever the mystery winner was, they failed to come forward. Lottery officials stated that despite their best efforts to find the winner, the £1 million prize money will go to benefit projects in the UK that are funded by the National Lottery, helping to aid projects across the arts, sports, heritage, charities, health, education and the environment.
So make sure that you don’t miss out, and check your tickets vigilantly! Or, purchase your EuroMillions lottery tickets online at Lottery24.com, and you will be informed in writing of all your winnings.
