17 December 2014
What were you doing on the evening of 29 November 2014? If you were checking the lottery results, then unfortunately you're not the person we're looking for. Instead, we're searching for someone who bought a National Lottery ticket, and then promptly forgot about it. Believe it or not, that same lottery ticket is now worth a massive £1 796 081 - and no-one's come forward to claim it!
That's right - strange as it may seem, there's a lottery ticket out there that's worth almost £1.8 million in jackpot winnings, and it seems as if it's been completely forgotten about. How does that even happen? We don't know about you, but when we buy a lottery ticket we don't let it out of our sight, and we check and double-check the numbers just to make 100% sure that there isn't a jackpot hiding in them somewhere. We certainly don't buy a ticket, forget about it, and then spend the next few weeks cooling our heels while the National Lottery goes on a nationwide search for the exact ticket that we purchased.
We wonder what could have happened to it? Perhaps it's been lost down the side of a couch. Thrown away with the rubbish. Fallen out of a pocket. Mixed up with some old receipts. Or perhaps even stolen and stripped for parts! Certainly it hasn't been handed in - and the National Lottery is doing everything they can to find it.
If you bought a lottery ticket for 29 November in the Newry and Mourne District of Northern Ireland, then the National Lottery is looking for you! Turn out your pockets, go through the bin, check your wallet - if you find a lottery ticket with the numbers 6, 11, 18, 19, 38, 42 and the bonus ball of 17, then you're the winner everyone's been searching for.
The National Lottery has gone on record as saying: "We're eager to find the 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 who bought a Lotto ticket in this area 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 clock is now ticking - as the lucky ticket holder now has less than 180 days to come forward and claim their prize. If the jackpot is still in search of a winner once the deadline is up, the prize money will instead be distributed among National Lottery-funded projects. And while donating money to charity is indeed a worthy use of the jackpot winnings, we'd hate to see someone miss out on the prize of a lifetime! So please, check and double-check your old lottery tickets as you could be the mystery winner everyone's in search of!
Of course, if you're sure that you're not the owner of the ticket, there's still a way for you to be a winner - by buying a lottery ticket online from GiantLottos.com in time for tonight's UK National Lottery draw.
