National Lottery urges players to double check their tickets as it hunts missing winner owed £10k-a-month for 30 years
LOTTO players are being urged to double check their tickets after the National Lottery launched a hunt for a missing winner who is owed £10k a month for 30 years.
The lucky winner will be rolling in cash once they claim the top prize from the ‘Set for Life’ draw-based game which sees winners cash in £10,000 a month.
The National Lottery is urging anyone who plays to check and double-check their tickets to see if they are the winner of the life-changing prize.
Anyone who bought a ticket in the Three Rivers District, where the winning ticket was purchased, have been told to check if they matched the main five numbers and the Life Ball in the draw on 6 May 2021.
The winning Set For Life numbers on that date were 2, 7, 25, 40, 46 and the Life Ball was 4 – with the winner needing to claim the prize before November 2.
Anyone who has misplaced their ticket but thinks that they might be a genuine winner can put their claim in writing to Camelot within 30 days of the drawer.
Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery , Andy Carter, said: "We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings, this amazing prize could literally mean someone is now set for life, if only they would come forward.
“We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old Set For Life tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.
“We’re encouraging everyone to check their tickets online at national-lottery.co.uk or by downloading the National Lottery app, and to buy their tickets in retail in line with government guidance.
“Playing online via the website or app means that your ticket is checked, and you get an email notification if you win a prize. You can also scan your retail tickets on the National Lottery app to check if you're a winner.”
A mum-of-two celebrated winning the prize in 2019 after using the last £1.50 left in her online account from a previous win to buy a line for the August 12 draw.
Vicky Mitchell, from Halifax, said at the time: "In a million years you never think you'll win big but this is life changing."
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.
