A EuroMillions prize of £208,839.80 has yet to be claimed in Leeds and National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets for the chance to claim the cash in time.
The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket who matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the EuroMillions draw on Friday, December 20.
The winning EuroMillions numbers on that date were 12, 13, 17, 22, 43 and the Lucky Star numbers were 3 and 10. The lucky ticket-holder has until Wednesday, June 18 to make their claim.
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 the National Lottery Good Causes – adding to the £31 billion already raised through sales of lottery tickets since The National Lottery launched in November 1994.
A National Lottery spokesperson 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, and what a start to 2014 it would be. We’re urging everyone who may have bought a EuroMillions ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.”
Anyone 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 0845 9100000.
