£1M Euromillions Lottery Prize Remains Unclaimed in Londonderry

A lucky ticket holder who won £1 million from the Euromillions draw two weeks ago has yet to claim their prize.

The winning ticket was purchased on 31st July in County Londonderry by one of the two winners in the UK. The deadline for the winner to claim the £1 million prize is 27th January 2019.

If the winner does not show up with the winning ticket by the deadline, the prize money, as well as all the interest generated, will be contributed to National Lottery-funded projects across the country.

Searching for the Secret Millionaire

“We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings,” said Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery.

“This amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life.

“We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old Euromillions tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding so that this prize can turn someone into the newest member of the lottery millionaire club.

“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.”

Earlier this month, a shop manager and a railway worker, both from Wales, scooped £100,000 and £70,000 respectively on National Lottery Scratchcards.
