Lottery players have been urged to take a look at their tickets because there are two EuroMillions prizes worth £1 million each that have not been claimed as yet.
Last Friday’s draw
The two-ticket holders who have not come forward as yet won in the EuroMillions draw that was conducted the previous Friday.
They won the UK Millionaire Maker prize, with one player purchasing their ticket online and the other buying it in a retail store.
With every line that players play in the EuroMillions lottery, they automatically receive the Millionaire Maker code since it is printed on their ticket.
Typically there is one winner guaranteed in the Millionaire Maker draw, but the EuroMillions draw on Friday was different. This time around, there were 22 people who could grab the £1 million prize.
The senior winners’ adviser of the National Lottery, Andy Carter said that even though it had only been less than a week since the draw, they were still urging all players of the EuroMillions lottery to check their tickets.
He said that the easiest way for them to check their prizes is through the National Lottery app. He added that there were two millionaires who may not have realized it yet. He said that there is a lot that can be done with £1 million, as winners can go on a holiday, or treat their family.
Players who have the winning ticket usually have 180 days from the draw’s date to claim their prize.
This comes after a lucky ticket-holder from the UK won a record jackpot in the EuroMillions draw worth £195 million in the last draw on July 19th. This is the biggest win in the National Lottery of all time.
While the winner has claimed the prize, there is no information about whether they will decide to go public or not.
