The National Lottery is on a quest to locate a missing winner who has the opportunity to enjoy a lavish lifestyle for three decades.
This fortunate individual won the astounding top prize of £10,000 per month for 30 years in the ‘Set For Life’ draw-based game.
The National Lottery is urging players to thoroughly check their tickets to seize this life-changing reward.
The Hunt for the Winner:
The search is underway to find the owner of the winning ticket, purchased in the Stroud District, who successfully matched the five main numbers and the Life Ball in the Set For Life draw on May 18, 2023.
The winning numbers for that particular draw were 10, 32, 36, 39, 43, with the Life Ball being 2.
The fortunate ticket-holder has until November 14, 2023, to claim their prize.
Claiming the Prize:
Even if someone is unable to physically possess their ticket, they can still make a claim by writing to Camelot, the operator of the National Lottery.
However, such claims must be submitted within 30 days of the draw.
Appeal from the National Lottery:
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, expressed the urgency in locating the mystery ticket-holder and awarding them their winnings.
Carter emphasized the transformative impact this extraordinary prize could have on someone’s life, making it an incredible way to start the summer.
He encouraged all individuals who purchased a ticket in the relevant area to recheck their old Set For Life tickets, suggesting the National Lottery app as the easiest method.
He also urged people to search common places where a missing ticket could be hiding, such as pockets, wallets, bags, or even the back of a sofa.
The National Lottery team is eagerly waiting for the lucky winner to come forward and claim their life-changing prize.
Fate of Unclaimed Prizes:
In the event that no one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, the prize money, along with all the interest it has accrued, will be allocated to National Lottery-funded projects throughout the United Kingdom.
By participating in any National Lottery game, players contribute over £30 million each week to support these projects.
This funding has a wide-ranging impact, from aiding local charities in their community work to assisting athletes in achieving success at prestigious sporting events like the Commonwealth Games.
To date, National Lottery Good Causes have raised over £47 billion, with more than 670,000 individual grants distributed.
