Lottery prize of £1m waiting to be claimed in Lancashire

A hunt is under way for the lucky ticket holder of an unclaimed £1m lottery prize in Lancashire.

Monday, 17th August 2020, 12:30 pm

National Lottery players are being urged to check their tickets for the chance to claim the big money jackpot which was bought in West Lancashire.

The unclaimed ticket matched five main numbers and the bonus ball in the Lotto draw on August 1, 2020. The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 4, 10, 13, 24, 53, 56 and the bonus ball was 22. The ticket holder has until January 28, 2021 to claim their prize.

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the deadline the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

National Lottery players are being urged to check their tickets

Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at the National Lottery 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.

“In the current situation we’re encouraging everyone to check their tickets online via The National Lottery website or via The National Lottery App, where possible. You can scan your retail draw-based game tickets on The National Lottery App to see if you’ve won a prize.

“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.”

Anyone not in possession of their ticket, for whatever reason, but who believes they have a genuine claim can still make a claim in writing to Camelot, but it must be within 30 days of the draw.

With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket.

Anyone who has any queries or who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0333 234 5050 or email [email protected]
