Lottery player in Swindon sitting on a £1m prize-winning ticket
WHEN was the last time you checked your EuroMillions raffle number? If it's been a few weeks you could be sitting on a ticket that is worth £1m.
The National Lottery is hunting for a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle winner who is a secret millionaire and bought there ticket in the Swindon area.
Players in the Borough of Swindon are being urged to check and double-check their unique EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle selection from the draw of September 28.
The search is on to find the owner of the winning ticket which was bought in the town.
For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle selection printed on their ticket.
The winning selection on Friday, September 28, was ZLJ501773 - the lucky ticket-holder has until March 27 to claim their prize.
If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest the prize has generated, will go to The National Lottery Good Causes – adding to the £28bn already raised through sales of lottery tickets since The National Lottery launched in November 1994.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life.
“Being able to guarantee two UK millionaires every week with Millionaire Raffle is fantastic and we’re urging everyone to check their old EuroMillions tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding so that this prize can turn someone into the newest member of the lottery millionaire club.
“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa. We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.”
