The National Lottery are asking players to double check their old Lotto tickets as a big prize is still sitting unclaimed.

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. 

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. 

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.
