The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, bought in West Lothian, who matched their five numbers in the Lotto HotPicks ‘Pick 5’ game* with five of the six main numbers from the Lotto draw on Saturday February 3 2018. The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 8, 26, 27, 29, 49 and 58.
The lucky ticket-holder has until 2 August 2018 to make their claim.
Anyone not in possession of their ticket, for whatever reason, but who believes they have a genuine claim can still make a claim in writing to Camelot, but it must be within 30 days of the draw.
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.
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 HotPicks 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.”
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 0333 234 5050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
