£64k EuroMillions prize remains unclaimed
Date published: 28 July 2020
The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, bought in Manchester, who matched the five main numbers and no Lucky Star numbers in the EuroMillions draw on July 14
An amazing EuroMillions prize worth £64,186.50 has yet to be claimed from a ticket bought in Manchester.
National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets for the chance to claim this life-changing prize.
The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, bought in Manchester, who matched the five main numbers and no Lucky Star numbers in the EuroMillions draw on July 14, 2020.
The winning EuroMillions numbers on that date were 11, 22, 30, 37, 47 and the Lucky Star numbers were 9 and 10.
The lucky ticket-holder has until January 10, 2021 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.
Thanks to National Lottery players, up to £600m is being used by charities and organisations affected by the impact of the coronavirus outbreak across the arts, community and charity, heritage, education, environment and sport sectors.
This includes up to £300m in funding support from the National Lottery Community Fund which is being used over the next six months to help groups best placed to support people and communities through the crisis - from helping support food banks to causes that combat loneliness and isolation, support for the elderly and projects that aid health in the community.
By playing The National Lottery, an average of £30m is raised every week by National Lottery players for projects big and small across the country.
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.
"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 the National Lottery Line on 0333 234 5050 or email: email@example.com
Anyone concerned about lost or unchecked tickets may like to consider either setting up a National Lottery Direct Debit or playing online at: www.national-lottery.co.uk.
