THE clock is ticking for a mystery lottery winner from the borough of Dudley who has just a week left to claim a Lotto prize of £76,842.
The search is still on to find the winning ticket owner, who matched five numbers and the bonus ball in the Lotto draw on March 20 2013.
With just days left to go National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets one last time for the chance to claim the life-enhancing prize.
The lucky ticket-holder, who picked winning numbers 4, 11, 14, 27, 43, 46 and the bonus ball - 42 - has until Monday September 16 to make their claim.
If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline the prize money, plus all the interest it has earned, will go to The National Lottery Good Causes pot.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Time really is running out for the winner of this prize, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward at the last minute to claim the money.
“We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets one last time or look anywhere a missing Lotto ticket could be hiding. “This life-enhancing prize could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there.”
Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.
Anyone concerned about lost or unchecked tickets can set up a National Lottery Subscription or play online at www.national-lottery.co.uk Numbers can be entered in advance and lucky winners are notified online if their numbers come up.
