Hours Remain for Crawley EuroMillions Winner to Claim £1 Million Prize
Last Updated: Tuesday 28th November 2017, 10:38 am
There are now just hours remaining for a EuroMillions ticket holder from Crawley, West Sussex to contact National Lottery officials and claim a prize worth £1 million. The potentially prosperous player, whose luck is rapidly running out, captured the sizeable sum back in June, but has failed to make any contact, meaning the champagne is still very much on ice and threatening to go flat.
Where is the Crawley EuroMillions Winner?
Having correctly matched the winning UK Millionaire Maker code HQGT 61980 in the draw on Friday 2nd June, the summer was looking so very sunny for one fortuitous lottery fan. However, as the leaves fell from the branches, so slipped away the mystery ticket holder’s chances of claiming a reward that would see them join the exclusive millionaires’ club. Now, as Wednesday 29th November’s 5pm deadline looms large, National Lottery officials are keen to make one last-ditch attempt to jog the memories of locals in the Crawley area.
Carter’s Rallying Call to Crawley
Andy Carter, the National Lottery’s senior winners’ advisor, is a man who doesn’t give up on finding missing winners easily. The devoted huntsman always demonstrates dogged determinism when it comes to sniffing out unsuspecting victors, and this occasion has been no different. “Time really is running out for the winner of this prize,” stressed Carter. “But we are still hopeful that someone will come forward at the very last minute to claim the money.”
Continuing his rallying cry, Carter made a connection with the people of Crawley in the hope that the winner would emerge before it was too late: "We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets one final time or look anywhere a missing EuroMillions ticket could be hiding. This prize could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there.”
Players in the UK have 180 days from the date of the winning draw to claim any prize, regardless of the amount won.
