Imagine scooping lottery windfall worth £1.000.000 and never realizing it was yours in the first place. That could happen to one player from Leicester. They have only a month left to come forward and collect their prize, or their fortune will be lost forever.
The mysterious ticket holder purchased the UK Lotto ticket worth £1.000.000 for the draw that took place all the way back on February 21st. It contained the winning code TEAL75012587 for the Millionaire Raffle that night. According to the rules in the UK, lottery winners have up to 180 days from the draw date to collect their windfalls, meaning that the punter from Leicester must claim their prize money until August 20th.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at the National Lottery, encouraged the players to check and double-check their tickets one last time so they wouldn’t miss out on this amazing opportunity. His top advice is to go through the content of your pockets and wallets, since that’s the place where people usually keep their missing tickets. It’s also important to check them all the way through, because Millionaire Raffle codes often go overlooked.
“Time is fast running out for the winner of this prize, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward at the very last minute to claim the money. This life-changing prize could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there,” said Mr. Carter.
If no one comes forward with the £1.000.000 winning ticket before August 20th, this amazing amount of money won’t go to waste – it will be added to the National Lottery’s Good Causes Fund.
