A lotto player somewhere in North Norfolk is sitting on an unclaimed prize for more than £130,000.
An amazing Lotto prize of £136,831 has yet to be claimed in the Norwich area, so National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets for the chance to claim this life-enhancing prize in time.
The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, bought in the Norwich area, who matched five numbers and the bonus ball in the Lotto draw on Wednesday 24 March 2010. The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 3, 5, 23, 28, 42, 49 and the bonus ball was 41.
The lucky ticket-holder has until 5.30pm on Monday 20 September 2010 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 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.
“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.”
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.
