Month to go as £350k ticket lies un­claimed

West Lothian Courier - - News - Sean O’Neil

West Loth­ian Lotto play­ers are be­ing urged to check and dou­ble check their tick­ets as a mas­sive £350,000 still lies un­claimed.

Only a month re­mains for the mys­tery win­ner to claim their huge £350,000 prize from the Lotto HotPicks ticket bought in the West Loth­ian area.

The win­nings - the high­est avail­able on the Lotto HotPicks game - must be claimed by Au­gust 2.

The search is on to find the owner of the win­ning ticket who matched their five num­bers in the Lotto HotPicks‘Pick 5’game* with five of the six main num­bers from the Lotto draw on Satur­day 3 Fe­bru­ary 2018. The win­ning Lotto num­bers on that date were 8, 26, 27, 29, 49 and 58.

Andy Carter, Se­nior Win­ners’ Ad­vi­sor at The Na­tional Lottery said,“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.

“We’re urg­ing ev­ery­one to check their old tick­ets one fi­nal time or look any­where a miss­ing Lotto HotPicks ticket could be hid­ing. This life-chang­ing prize could re­ally help to make dreams be­come a re­al­ity for some­one out there.”

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.

In West Loth­ian alone nearly 1000 in­di­vid­ual Na­tional Lottery grants have been awarded to help projects across the arts, sports, her­itage, health, ed­u­ca­tion, en­vi­ron­ment, char­ity and vol­un­tary sec­tors.

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 help@na­tional-lottery.co.uk.
