No claim for £64m lottery ticket

national lottery

The owner of the £64m winning ticket only has a few hours left to claim the huge prize. The potential multimillionaire has until 11pm tonight to claim the jackpot. After the 11pm deadline, the ticket will expire and the huge £63,837,543.60 jackpot will go to various charities. The jackpot will be the biggest unclaimed prize in the UK.

The clock is ticking and to be fair the National Lottery has tried everything to try and find the lottery winner in time. They have advertise everywhere in the Stevenage and Hitchin area of Hertfordshire in order to find the winning ticket. They have sent teams in the streets of both towns asking potential multimillionaires to check their coat pockets and handbags.

The campaign to find the mystery winner has been going on for months and will probably end tonight without the long expected claim. The £63,837,543.60 will then be spread among various charities.

Just as a reminder, if you live in the Stevenage and Hitchin area of Hertfordshire and have bought a ticket on for the EuroMillions draw on Friday 8 June, please check your ticket to see if you are the winner. The winning combination is: five numbers – 5, 11, 22, 34 and 40 – and two Lucky Star numbers, 9 and 11.

The missing ticket is printed with five numbers – 5, 11, 22, 34 and 40 – and two Lucky Star numbers, 9 and 11.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Our message is simple – we’re urging everyone to look one last time everywhere a missing ticket could be hiding. This amazing prize would be a fabulous early Christmas present.”

Anyone who believes they have a winning ticket for any of the draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.

If the prize remains unclaimed by 11pm tonight, the money, plus all the interest it has generated since June, will go to the National Lottery Good Causes.
