Wednesdaymarks the final day for the holder of a winning lottery ticket to come forward and claim their prize. The missing ticket, which must be presented by 11pm in order to receive £64million, was bought in the UK in the Stevenage and Hitchin area.
The correct numbers relate to a draw that took place on June 8th 2012 for the EuroMillions, but the time limit to claim the winnings is set at 180 days. After this deadline the prize money cannot be received.
The winning numbers for the jackpot are: 5, 11, 22, 34 and 40 with the ‘lucky star’ numbers being 9 and 11.
Although lottery officials are not stating where the ticket was bought - as it is understood lottery rules do not allow this information to be stated - it has been said that it was purchased in the Hertfordshire area; in Stevenage and also nearby Hitchin.
It is expected that some of the funds will go to good causes connected to the lottery if the money is not claimed by the owner of the winning ticket.
A National Lottery spokesperson said, as quoted by The Telegraph: “Our message is simple - we're urging everyone to look one last time everywhere a missing ticket could be hiding. We're desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings - this amazing prize would be a fabulous early Christmas present.”
If the prize is not claimed by 11pm this will be the largest unclaimed lottery prize to date.
