Heart's been told that a Lotto prize of almost £200,000 still hasn't been claimed.

The ticket was bought in Gillingham for the draw on 14th April and matched 5 numbers.

The numbers for the draw that day were 2, 6, 8, 23, 44, 46 and the bonus ball was 37.

Whoever bought the ticket has got until 5.30pm on Monday 11 October 2010 to make their claim.

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. We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding. 

“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa – someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune! We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.”

To jog Lotto players’ memories, This Ain’t A Love Song by Scouting For Girls topped the UK singles chart at the time, while Boyzone were at the top of the album chart with Brother.

Closer to home, local football club, Gillingham FC, were in action on the day prior to the Lotto draw as they continued in their bid to ensure League One football next season. Fans will remember that the team picked up a valuable point in a 1-1 draw at home to Brighton and Hove Albion.

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.
