Check your ticket for a mil­lion is the mes­sage to lo­cal lot­tery play­ers

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

NA­TIONAL Lot­tery play­ers in West Lan­cashire are be­ing urged to dou­ble-check their tick­ets with a £1m prize un­claimed.

The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, bought some­where in the borough, who matched five main num­bers and the bonus ball in the Lotto draw on Au­gust 1.

The winning Lotto num­bers on that date were 4, 10, 13, 24, 53, 56 and the bonus ball was 22 and the lucky tick­etholder has un­til Jan­uary 28 to claim their prize.

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.

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

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 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.”

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 0333 234 5050 or email help@na­tional-lot­tery. co.uk.
