Unlucky Walsall resident loses out on EuroMillions fortune
There was a secret millionaire in Walsall but they've now missed their chance to claim the fortune.
A prize fund of £1,000,000 was left unclaimed following a EuroMillions draw on September 18, last year.
The ticket-holder bought their ticket in the borough of Walsall and the deadline for the ticket-holder to claim their prize was at midnight on March 17.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, “Unfortunately, I can confirm that the ticket-holder did not come forward within the deadline to claim their prize and has now sadly missed out on this substantial amount of money.
"However, the money will now add to the £30M raised on average each and every week for National Lottery Good Causes across the UK.
“In the current situation, we’re encouraging everyone to check their tickets online at national-lottery.co.uk or by downloading the National Lottery app, and to only buy or check their tickets in retail in line with government guidance.
"Playing online via the website or app means that your ticket is checked, and you get an email notification if you win a prize. You can also scan your retail tickets on the National Lottery app to check if you're a winner.”
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.
All prizes that do not receive a valid claim after 180 days, and any interest they have earned, add to the £30M raised on average every week for National Lottery Good Causes across the UK.
