Lottery players in East Kilbride are being urged to double-check their tickets in a final search for South Lanarkshire’s missing £1million Lotto Millionaire Raffle winner. With just days to go until the missing Lotto ticket is due to expire (February 23, 2017), locals are being asked to check their tickets from the unique Team GB-inspired Lotto Medal Draw on August 27, 2016 for the winning Millionaire Raffle code GREY 8746 6648. The one-off Lotto draw was held to thank National Lottery players for the support they have given Team GB through playing the lottery.
Every week Lotto Millionaire Raffle guarantees to create two millionaires but the winner, who bought their Lotto ticket in South Lanarkshire, was one of 27 millionaires created in the draw to celebrate 27 Gold medals won in Rio. If no one comes forward with 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. The National Lottery changes the lives of individuals as well as communities – players raise, on average, over £30 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week. 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 has any queries or 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 0844 338 7551 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
