24 May 2006
Actors from the Playbox Theatre today (24 May 2006) performed a special new ‘whodunnit’ to remind National Lottery players in Warwickshire to check their old tickets, in an attempt to track down a mystery jackpot winner who is missing out on a £1,666,667 fortune.
Players who bought a ticket for the main Lotto draw on Saturday 29 April 2006 automatically had the same line(s) of numbers entered into the £5 million Jackpot-Only Draw. The mystery Lotto ticket-holder in Warwickshire matched all six numbers to win a share of the £5 million Jackpot-Only Draw, and now has until 5.30pm on 26 October 2006 to come forward with the winning ticket and make their claim. The winning numbers for the £5 million Jackpot-Only Draw on 29 April were 4, 10, 23, 36, 37 and 49.
If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest generated, will go to the Good Causes – adding to the £18.5 billion already raised through lottery ticket sales over the last 11 years.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We are desperate to find this ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings. This life-changing amount of money could really help make someone’s dreams a reality.
We are urging everyone to check their tickets again and look in the pockets of their winter coats, in their wallets, in 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!”
To jog Lotto players’ memories, on 29 April 2006, Gnarls Barkley was dominating the charts with Crazy – while Freedomland, starring Samuel L Jackson and Julianne Moore, had just opened at the cinema. Closer to home, audiences at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre were enjoying a production of Romeo and Juliet, while fans of Warwick Cricket Club were contemplating their recent defeat by local rivals, Jaguar Daimler.
With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their win if they have the winning ticket. 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.
