£2m lottery prize still unclaimed

A life-changing jackpot prize of more than £2 million has yet to be claimed by its lucky winner.

The search is on to find the owner of the winning ticket who matched all six numbers in the Lotto draw on Saturday November 13 to win £2,278,395.

The ticket was bought in Bromley, south-east London, and the winning numbers were 5, 11, 29, 31, 35, 39, with the bonus ball number 45.

The lucky ticket-holder has until 5.30pm on Thursday May 12 next year to come forward.

If the jackpot is not claimed by the deadline, the prize money and all the interest it has gained will go to National Lottery Good Causes, adding to the £25 billion already raised through ticket sales.

There are 28 unclaimed prizes within the 180-day claim deadline set by the National Lottery.

Lotto officials are urging regular players to check their pockets in case they have the winning numbers from this month's draw.

A National Lottery spokesman said: "We're desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings - this amazing jackpot 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.

"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."
