Is it you? Unclaimed Lotto prize ticket was bought in East Devon

National Lottery appeals for winner to come forward.

National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets.

“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,” said a National Lottery spokesperson.

“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.”

The winning ticket, bought in the East Devon area, matched five numbers and the bonus ball in the Lotto draw on Wednesday, September 8. The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 8, 10, 26, 34, 48, 49 and the bonus ball was 6.

The lucky ticket-holder has until 5.30pm on Monday, March 7, 2011, to make their claim.
