Unclaimed £1M lottery ticket was purchased in Harrow, residents urged to check results

A £1 million lottery prize remains unclaimed, as lottery officials urgently appeal to players in Harrow to double-check their tickets.

The elusive winning ticket, which matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball in the Lotto draw held on January 17, continues to mystify as the clock ticks down until the July deadline to claim. The ticket was purchased in Harrow!

The winning numbers were 10, 24, 28, 30, 44, 48, with the Bonus Ball numbered 35. With the winning ticket set to expire on July 15 this year, the race is on to unearth the lucky millionaire.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, implored the public to search high and low for the elusive ticket. “If you bought a Lotto ticket in the London Borough of Harrow for the draw on 17 January, it’s time to look everywhere – in the pockets of clothes you might have been wearing at the time, in bags, in the car, wallets and purses, and in that sideboard or drawer where we all tend to put bits and pieces – and check your tickets. Do you live or work in this area, do you have family and friends there who you were visiting or were you just passing through?”

The National Lottery has made it clear that anyone who believes they possess the winning ticket but cannot find it for any reason can still make a claim. However, this must be done within 30 days of the draw. Players usually have 180 days from the draw date to claim their prize, making the deadline for this particular ticket July 15, 2024.

For those with questions or who believe they hold the winning ticket within the 180-day limit, the National Lottery has set up a helpline. To inquire or make a claim, individuals can call the National Lottery Line at 0333 234 5050, you can also check out unclaimed payments from previous draws here.

Could it be you? With each passing day, the risk of losing the unclaimed £1 million prize becomes more likely, so check your results for what could be a life-changing jackpot.
