Ahoy There! Captain On Lookout for £242k EuroMillions Prize Winner
06 Jun 2006
The captain on board HMS Warrior was looking through his telescope today in search of the mystery winner of a £242,648.50 EuroMillions prize. As they must be feeling ‘all at sea’, the captain will be hoping to throw the missing ticket-holder a lifeline by encouraging them to check their old tickets.
The ticket, which matched five numbers and one Lucky Star number, was bought for the EuroMillions draw on Friday 24 March 2006. The mystery ticket-holder has until 5.30pm on 20 September 2006 to come forward with the winning ticket and make their claim. The winning numbers for EuroMillions draw on 24 March, which navigated the lucky ticket-holder to riches, were 17, 28, 33, 35, 47, and the Lucky Star numbers were 4 and 9.
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 sales of lottery tickets over the last 11 years.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “This life-enhancing amount of money could really help make someone’s dreams a reality, so we are desperate to reunite the winner with their prize.
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 24 March 2006, Orson was dominating the charts with No Tomorrow, and Romance and Cigarettes, starring Susan Sarandon and Christopher Walken, had just opened at the cinema. Closer to home, audiences at the Seacoast Repertory Theatre were enjoying a performance of Fiddler on the Roof.
