£1million lottery prize remains unclaimed by Leicester resident

There is only a week left for a Leicester resident to claim a £1m National Lottery prize.

The owner of the winning ticket, bought for a draw on 21 February, has until 20 August to take home the money.

The ticket has the winning Millionaire Raffle code TEAL 7501 2587.

Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets one final time or look anywhere a missing Lotto ticket could be hiding.”

If the 180-day deadline from the date of the draw expires without the Leicester-based winner coming forward, the £1 million prize money will be put towards The Good Causes Fund, a National Lottery-led initiative to fund projects throughout the UK.

Carter added: “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.”
