COULD you be the mystery winner of a £1m lottery prize?

The countdown is on to find the owner of a lottery ticket bought in West Dorset.

The lucky ticket-holder from the Lotto draw on March 31, 2018, has until September 27, 2018, to claim their prize.

Each week Lotto Millionaire Raffle guarantees to create two millionaires – one on Wednesday and one on Saturday.

For every Lotto line played, players automatically receive a Lotto Millionaire Raffle code printed on their ticket.

The winning ticket features the Millionaire Raffle code AQUA 2522 3999.

With just over a month to go until the deadline, National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets one last time for the chance to claim the life-changing prize.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Time is fast running out for the winner of this prize, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward at the very last minute to claim the money.”

If no one comes forward before the deadline, the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket.

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0333 234 5050 or email help@national-lottery.co.uk.
