The all-important ticket was bought in the district of Huntingdonshire, and the local St Neots Rangers Sustrans Leisure Cycling Group was called in last week to ride around and help jog the memories of players in the area. If the prize is not claimed, it will be given to the UK National Lottery’s Good Causes Fund.
The £1 million in Cambridgeshire is just one of many prizes yet to be claimed, and participants are reminded to keep checking clothes pockets, wallets, bags and even down the back of the sofa if they think they may have lost a ticket.
A farming couple from Ireland provided further proof this week that missing tickets can be found in the most unlikely of places, having stumbled across a EuroMillions Plus entry worth €500,000 as they looked in their car for loose change. The wife said: “I was desperately looking for coins to fill the meter when I spotted four lottery tickets stuffed with rubbish in the side pocket of the driver’s door.”
The ticket had been in the couple’s car for seven weeks without them realising, and they are now thrilled that they will be able to pay off a chunk of their mortgage and put some money aside for their children’s education.
You can use the EuroMillions Checker to find out if you are due any prizes from the main game, while choosing numbers online will ensure that you are always paid out automatically and notified of any wins. The jackpot for tonight’s game stands at an impressive £32 million (€37 million), giving players from the nine participating countries another wonderful opportunity to land great prizes. Best of luck!
