The prize dates back to Friday 23rd February, when a special European Millionaire Maker game took place. Multiple winners were selected at random from across all nine participating countries, and five of the lucky players came from the UK. Four of the prizes have already been claimed, but the participant who matched the code JLVW 63060 has not yet made contact and lottery officials have made a last-ditch attempt to spread the word in the Havering area.
Andy Carter, the National Lottery’s Senior Winners’ Advisor, said: “We’re desperate to find this 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 ticket in this area to check their old EuroMillions tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding, so that this prize can turn someone into the newest member of the lottery millionaire club.”
Hoping To Jog The Winner’s Memory
The National Lottery has been trying its best to jog the memory of players in the Havering area for some time, and even sent a team of runners to the borough back in March. The runners wore kits showing the winning code, and the hope was that the EuroMillions winner would come forward and make a claim even if they had lost their ticket.
Anyone who loses a ticket must submit a claim before 30 days have passed to have any chance of receiving a prize, so the Havering winner will now need to come forward with their entry before it expires next week. A host of other EuroMillions prizes are also in danger of going unclaimed in the coming weeks and months. Go to the Unclaimed Prizes page to see a list of the outstanding awards.
All of the unclaimed prizes in the UK stem from the Millionaire Maker, as many players do not realise they are entered automatically and do not check their tickets. The Millionaire Maker code is located directly underneath your numbers on a EuroMillions ticket, and you can use the ticket checker to see if you are a winner. The Millionaire Maker raffle gives away two prizes of £1 million in every regular draw, while special draws take place from time to time where even more millionaires are guaranteed in the UK, or across Europe.
EuroMillions Jackpot Hits £88 Million
It could be that the winner from Havering only bought a ticket on February 23rd because they had heard about the European Millionaire Maker, as some players only take part when there is an exciting promotion or a particularly large jackpot.
The jackpot for the next draw on Friday stands at a mighty £88 million, making it the biggest prize seen on EuroMillions for almost four months. Nobody has won the jackpot since it was snapped up in back-to-back draws on 10th and 13th July. Take part online or go to an authorised retailer to give yourself a chance of becoming the next big winner.
