National Lottery players urged to check tickets as £12 million left unclaimed

BRITS are being told to check their tickets now after more than £12million has been left unclaimed.

The life-changing sum is made up of two tickets, one Euromillions ticket and one National Lottery ticket.

The National Lottery ticket is worth £11,165,532, and was won by a single ticket-holder on August 14 of this year. 

Its winning numbers were 01 – 02 – 15 – 19 – 39 – 43.

While the EuroMillions ticket is worth £1,000,000 and was won on August 13 as part of the special UK Millionaire Maker Maker draw.

Its winning numbers were 06 – 12 – 44 – 47 – 49 , with the lucky star numbers being 08 and 12.

The National Lotto winner bought their ticket in a shop.

However, the EuroMillions winner bought their ticket online.

Camelot’s Andy Carter at The National Lottery, said: “It’s just a week ago that these two life-changing prizes were won by two lucky ticket-holders who have yet to claim their prizes.

“We’re asking National Lottery players to check their tickets – for the Lotto jackpot prize this is the physical paper ticket while for the EuroMillions Millionaire Maker prize we’re asking players to log into their National Lottery account to check, as this win was online.

It comes after one lucky winner won £10,000 a month for the next thirty years.

“These could be life-changing wins for two lucky ticket-holders and we’re hoping that both winners will now come forward and claim their amazing prizes.”

How to check your ticket

If you think you could be the lucky winner you can check the result by going online at national-lottery.co.uk.

You will then be prompted to enter your numbers. After which the checker will see if you have won.

Alternatively, you can download the Lotto app.

If you played the Lotto online or by the app you should have received an email notification if you won a prize.

This means that the EuroMillions winner probably has an email in their inbox right now telling them that they have won.

Physical ticket holders can also check their results by using the Lotto app to scan their ticket.

The National Lottery has awarded over £80 billion in prizes to date and created more than 6,100 millionaires or multi-millionaires since its launch in 1994.
