Search for £100,000 National Lottery winner continues with only few days remaining

The National Lottery is still hunting for the person who bought a winning lottery ticket in Leicestershire and hasn’t claimed their winnings of £100,000.

The winning ticket was purchased in the Melton or Charnwood area and the winner has just a few more days to collect the prize money – it will expire on 23 February 2017.

The prize was part of a special Lotto draw which took place on 27 August 2016 to celebrate the achievements of Team GB in the Rio Olympics.

For every Lotto line played, participants automatically received a Lotto raffle code printed on their ticket. The winning code for the £100,000 was PLUM 4305 4613.

Like all raffles, the prize draw will expire after 180 days. If the prize is not collected, the money will go into the National Lottery’s good causes fund.

So it may well be worth searching through your old lottery tickets to see if you have the special ticket.

If you have the winning ticket, you can claim your prize by emailing help@national-lottery.co.uk or calling 0844 338 7551.

But hurry, as time is running out…
