The National Lottery is desperately searching for the owner of a £64,000 jackpot winning ticket bought in Manchester who is yet to come forward.
The winning ticket was confirmed to have been purchased in Manchester earlier this month and matches all five main numbers, totalling a large sum of money, but the prize winnings are still unclaimed at this moment in time.
The draw was made on 14th July 2020 and the numbers on that date were 11, 22, 30, 37, 47, with the Lucky Star numbers being 9 and 10.
The lucky ticket-holder has until 10th January 2021 to claim their prize.
Anyone not in possession of their ticket, but for whatever reason believes they have a genuine claim, can still make a proposal in writing to Camelot, but this must be done within 30 days of the draw.
Speaking on the unclaimed winnings, Andy Carter – Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery – said: “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.”
He continued: “In the current situation, we’re encouraging everyone to check their tickets online via The National Lottery website or via The National Lottery app. You can scan your retail draw-based game tickets on The National Lottery App to see if you’ve won a prize.”
“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa [because] we have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.”
“While we are all trying to do the right thing by staying indoors as much as possible at the moment, it’s a good opportunity to dig out and check those old lottery tickets.”
If nobody presents the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money – plus all the interest it has generated – will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK, so get checking your numbers Manchester as this could be your lucky day.
