Winner Yet To Claim £76 Million!News | Euromillions | Winner | People | Prize | Interesting | Unclaimed Winnings
The search is on for the winner of an astonishing £76 MILLION in the EuroMillions, which took place on the 2 November 2018.
The winning numbers for the draw were 5 - 15 - 17 - 37 - 44 with Lucky Stars 7 and 11.
It has been revealed that the winning tickets were purchased in the UK's Boston and Skegness parliamentary constituency area.
The owner of the lucky ticket, who is encouraged to come forward, matched five main numbers including the two Lucky Star numbers to win the entire jackpot. But, time is ticking for the lucky EuroMillions winner, he or she only has until the 1 May 2019 in which to claim their winnings of £76 MILLION.
The lucky winner can either go public or stay anonymous. National Lottery Winners' Advisor Andy Carter said: "We have plenty of champagne on ice ready to celebrate." He urges the public to double-check and triple-check their tickets! and said, "Our player services team are on standby waiting for the ticket-holder to come forward and claim their prize." He said, "We're desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings and we're urging everyone to try checking in their pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags, down the back of the sofa and anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding."
Should the winner not come forward with the winning ticket before the deadline, the prize money, plus the interest it has generated, will go to lottery-funded projects and will be considered UK's biggest unclaimed jackpot! The previous largest jackpot which no-one claimed was in 2012 when a ticket owner in Hertfordshire missed out on a £64m prize.
This is the biggest win in the UK since Fred and Lesley Higgins won £57 million in August, and makes the lucky ticket holder the country's 10th-biggest EuroMillions winner of all time.
The £76 million lottery stood at that value after seven consecutive rollovers dating back to early October, when a sole player from Switzerland landed a massive £144 million. The lucky winner will be richer than Friends star Matt LeBlanc (£61.4m), and former US President Barack Obama (£30.7m). They will also have the choice if they so wish to buy a mansion next to Buckingham Palace - image having the Queen of England as a neighbour!
