Days left to claim £1m Lotto prize

Cynon Valley - - YOUR NEWS - TOM HOUGHTON tom.houghton@waleson­

A WOULD-BE mil­lion­aire in South Wales has just a week left to claim their for­tune as their golden ticket is set to ex­pire.

Some­one in the Merthyr Tyd­fil and Rhondda Cynon Taf area has un­til Au­gust 2 to turn in a £1m ticket as the six-month dead­line looms.

The ticket is from the Na­tional Lot­tery’s EuroMil­lions Mega Week draw, which hap­pened back in Fe­bru­ary, and also in­cludes a Dip into Par­adise prize.

The Na­tional Lot­tery has put out an ap­peal to find the owner of the ticket, bought in ei­ther of the ar­eas, with the UK Mil­lion­aire Maker code ZXPR 17675. If the buyer does not hand in the ticket by the Au­gust dead­line they will lose their prize money for­ever.

Lot­tery play­ers in the Val­leys are now be­ing urged to look “any­where and ev­ery­where”.

Andy Carter, Na­tional Lot­tery se­nior win­ners’ ad­viser, said: “This re­ally is the last chance for the win­ner of this claim their win.

“We’re urg­ing ev­ery­one to check their old tick­ets be­fore it’s too late. Look any­where and ev­ery­where a miss­ing EuroMil­lions ticket could be hid­ing, as this life-chang­ing prize could re­ally help to make dreams be­come a re­al­ity.”

If it gets to Au­gust 2 and the prize is still not claimed, the money, plus all of the in­ter­est it has gath­ered, will go to help Na­tional Lot­tery-funded projects across the UK, prize to which helps change the lives of in­di­vid­u­als and com­mu­ni­ties.

In the Merthyr Tyd­fil and Rhondda area alone more than 2,850 in­di­vid­ual Na­tional Lot­tery grants have been awarded to help projects across the arts, sports, her­itage, health, ed­u­ca­tion, en­vi­ron­ment, char­ity and vol­un­tary sec­tors.

Play­ers raise, on av­er­age, more than £30m for Na­tional Lot­tery­funded projects ev­ery week. If you think you have the win­ning ticket call the Na­tional Lot­tery Line on 0844 338 7551.
