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.
You can check your tickets online via The National Lottery website here.

Commentator Arlo White shows off what the Old Trafford gantry walk looks like
Ever wondered what it’s like to be up in the gantry in a football stadium, say, Old Trafford? Well, we certainly have.
You see the odd shot of the commentators sat there on the telly from time to time but it never really gives much away either and, at some venues, it’s quite a ways up there. There’s a little bit of allure behind these mysterious parts of footy grounds that most fans will never get to see.
After hours of mindless scrolling on the social media app, we stumbled across the well-known sports commentator‘s channel where he’s been showing off what it’s like to go in the gantry and one of them is his long walk to crow’s nest up at the Theatre of Dreams.
As it turns out, Arlo’s been doing these videos for a couple of years now, revealing how the gantry looks not only at Old Trafford but other big Premier League grounds too, such as down the road at the Etihad, Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Tottenham Hotspurs’ sparkly new ground and many more.
Another reason we found ourselves stuck on his TikTok for so long was also because of the other behind-the-scenes details he reveals too, even shedding light on how he prepares for games: note-taking, data sheets, how keeps himself warm up there during those cold nights on comms and so on.
