Check down the sofa for your lottery ticket!

Someone in the Forest of Dean has won £81,698 on the lottery, the problem is they don't know it!

The National Lottery says the prize remains unclaimed from the Lotto draw on 13 February 2010.

The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 16, 22, 24, 30, 39, 44 and the bonus ball was 9.

The lucky ticket-holder has until 5.30pm on 12 August 2010 to come forward and 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 Good Causes – adding to the £24 billion already raised through sales of lottery tickets since The National Lottery launched in November 1994. 

With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket. 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.
