A mystery millionaire has yet to come forward and claim their EuroMillions lottery prize worth a whopping £1,000,000.
The lucky EuroMillions lottery winner purchased their winning ticket in Ceredigion for the draw that took place on 7 February. Until now, however, the winner has yet come forward to claim their prize.
The National Lottery has requested that everyone who purchased a EuroMillions lottery ticket for the draw, use the lockdown period to look through their tickets.
According to the UK National Lottery organisers, there are millions of pounds that have yet to be claimed during the last 180 days. The reason for so many lottery players, who purchase their tickets from the corner shop, is due to the CoVid-19 pandemic lockdown.
The National Lottery says more and more players are signing up to play the lottery online from home during the CoVid-19 lockdown.
Camelot’s Andy Carter said: “While we are all trying to do the right thing by staying indoors at the moment, it’s a good opportunity to dig out and check those old lottery tickets - a five-minute check might just unearth a fortune!
"We know that lots of players often have unchecked tickets lying around, and this is an opportunity for a bit of spring cleaning which might turn out to be very worthwhile indeed.
“If you locate any previously unchecked tickets down the back of the sofa or in one of your old winter coat pockets, there is no need to venture out to the shops to have it checked.”
