The National Lottery is hunting for a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle winner who is a secret millionaire after buying a ticket in the Nottingham area.
Every week EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle guarantees to create two millionaires – one on Tuesday and one on Friday – but the winner from the draw on 23rd March, has still to check their ticket and claim their prize.
Players in Nottingham are being urged to check and double-check their unique EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle selection for the chance to become an instant millionaire.
For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle selection printed on their ticket. The winning selection on Friday 23rd March was LHZ360128 and the lucky ticket-holder has until 11pm on Wednesday 19th September 2012 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 the prize has generated, will go to The National Lottery Good Causes – adding to the £27 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.
“Being able to guarantee two UK millionaires every week with Millionaire Raffle is fantastic and we’re urging everyone 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.”
To jog EuroMillions players’ memories, Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye topped the UK singles chart at the time, while Bruce Springsteen was at the top of the album charts with Wrecking Balls.
Football fans will remember that Nottingham Forest entertained Brighton in the npower Championship on the day after the draw. They held the visiting team to a 1-1 draw. Away from sport, locals may have headed to the Playhouse to see a production of Romeo & Juliet.
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 910 0000.
