Could you be a millionaire? £1m Lotto raffle prize remains unclaimed in Waveney

National Lottery players are being urged to double-check their tickets as a £1m prize remains unclaimed in Waveney.

The lucky winner from the Lotto Millionaire Raffle on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, still has time to claim their prize.

For every Lotto line bought, players automatically receive a Millionaire Raffle code printed on their ticket. The winning code on that date was AQUA 5599 5162 and the ticket was bought in the Waveney district.

The winner has until October 23, 2017, to claim their prize.

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

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “We’re eager to find the mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life. We’re urging everyone who bought a Lotto ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.

“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa – someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune! We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.”
