MILTON KEYNES CALL OUT TO MISSING EUROMILLIONS WINNER
Somebody in the Milton Keynes area has won a substantial amount on the EuroMillions lottery, but that lucky individual is yet to come forward to claim the money, prompting lottery officials to send out an appeal.
The National Lottery is appealing to players in the area to check their tickets and those of their friends and family members, in case the missing ticket has simply been overlooked. The ticket, dating back to the EuroMillions draw on Friday February 21st 2014, is worth £207,772.30 to whoever purchased it, an amount that is certainly not to be missed.
Despite the winner having six months from the draw date to claim the prize, lottery officials are well aware that historically, the more time it takes for the winner to come forward, the less likely they are to come forward at all. Therefore the National Lottery is urging all players to check, check and check again in case they have missed the winning ticket.
The winning numbers during the draw were 13, 17, 28, 30 and 32 and the lucky stars were 5 and 7. While the mystery winner didn’t bank the jackpot, he or she did match all of the five main numbers plus one out of the two lucky stars to achieve the £200,000 prize fund.
A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket holder and unite them with their winnings,” the official continued to say that this amount could change somebody’s life, and it could certainly make for something to celebrate over the bank holiday weekend. So whatever your plans are for the weekend, make sure to check those pockets, drawers and even behind the back of the sofa before you go, just in case you have been sitting on a fortune all this time!
If the 180 day deadline passes before the lottery winner comes forward then the prize fund, along with all of the interest that it has generated, will be donated to the National Lottery Good Causes Fund – helping charities and projects around the UK since 1994.
