National lottery players in the Yarmouth and Lowestoft area are being urged to check their tickets to see if they have won a prize of more than half-a-million pounds.

National lottery players in the Yarmouth and Lowestoft area are being urged to check their tickets to see if they have won a prize of more than half-a-million pounds.

A share in a Lotto jackpot prize worth £548,030 has yet to be claimed, and the search is now on to find the holder of the winning ticket, bought in the area.

The winner matched all six numbers - 8, 14, 18, 23, 27 and 44 - in the Lotto draw on Boxing Day. The lucky ticket-holder has until 5.30pm on Monday, June 23 to come forward to make their claim.

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to the Good Causes, adding to the £20bn already raised through sales of lottery tickets since the lottery launched in November 1994.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We're urging everyone to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.

“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa - someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune! We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.”

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for this or any other national lottery draws should telephone 0845 910 0000.
