UK Lottery Winner Has Only One More Week to Claim £1M Prize
The unknown individual hit the prize on the EuroMillions Millionaire Maker draw on March 11.
So far, the only thing anyone knows is that the person bought the ticket in the London suburb of Ealing.
The limit for claiming a National Lottery win is 180 days from the draw date. Therefore, if the winner doesn’t claim the prize by Sept. 7, the deal’s off, and the lottery operator gets to keep the funds.
The code for the March 11 EuroMillions draw was MNZW 39388. Those who haven’t checked to see if they won can visit the National Lottery website or download its app. Anyone can be a winner, even those who least expect it.
Every EuroMillions Millionaire Maker draw creates a single millionaire. The player will automatically receive a unique EuroMillions Millionaire Maker number on every ticket when making a purchase.
Players generate more than £30 million (US$34.6 million) per week by playing National Lottery games. If no one claims the prize before the deadline, all the prize money and interest will go to National Lottery-funded projects in the UK.
If the winner doesn’t want to come forward because they don’t want their name in the papers, the National Lottery is fine with that. Winners can remain anonymous if they choose.
