National Lottery urge people to check tickets with just 11 days to claim £1m

The National Lottery is urging ticket-holders to check their numbers as the winnings for a £1million EuroMillions ticket have still not been claimed.

The EuroMillions draw in question was held on September 9 last year.

Those participating all had a EuroMillions Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket, which gave them the potential to win £1,000,000 if they had the lucky code.

The code attached to the unclaimed ticket is TDJL68325, and The National Lottery believes the ticket-holder purchased the ticket in the Tewkesbury area.

If the player realises that they have the winning ticket, they have until March 8 this year to claim their prize.

If the player does not come forward the money will be donated to charity and social projects in the UK that are funded by The National Lottery.

Despite lottery holders hoping to win big, this is not the first incident of £1m tickets going unchecked.

To date, there is cumulatively £15m worth of EuroMillions and Set for Life tickets unclaimed.
