Somebody in the county of Devon has won a million pound prize on the National Lottery, and a dream car, but they don’t even know it yet.
According to lottery officials, a EuroMillions ticket purchased in the Devon area was the winner of a Millionaire Maker prize on Mega Friday – which occurs on the last Friday of every month – which saw them become one of ten players across the UK to win a £1 million prize and their choice of one of several luxury brand new cars. This mystery player, who still has not claimed their prize, won their fortune in the drawing on Friday March 27th 2015, giving them only a few more weeks to make their claim before it expires.
Earlier this year we told you about a lottery winner in the Stirling area of Scotland who was a week away from missing out on their prize and now this lucky player, who achieved their fortune thanks to the random raffle number of KRD143088 that was printed on the bottom of their EuroMillions ticket, has until only September 23rd of this year to claim their prize, after which it will be donated, along with all of the interest it has generated in the last six months, to the National Lottery Good Causes fund. National Lottery officials say that this Devon winner is the only one of the ten selected in the draw at the end of March not to have collected their prize yet, which includes a car from a long list including a Jaguar F-type, an Audi R8 Spyder and a Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet.
In order to spread the word about the missing EuroMillions winner, lottery officials recently took several of these cars into Bideford to conduct a poll as to which car most Devonians would choose. Those that took part, who presumably are not the lucky winner, mostly chose the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet, although that might have had more to do with the personal chauffeur than the car itself! Lottery officials are appealing to local players to double check their old tickets, just like they did earlier this year when they were trying to locate a missing UK Lotto winner in Barnet.
National Lottery officials explained that they hoped this small taste of a millionaire’s lifestyle would jog the memory of the EuroMillions winner, and lead to them checking through their old tickets. Hopefully the winner will come forward before too long, and they haven’t lost their ticket like a Florida man who missed out on a huge lottery prize because of his missing tickets.
