With just days to go National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets one last time for the chance to claim this life-changing prize.

Lotto Millionaire Raffle guarantees to create a millionaire in every draw - one on Wednesday and one on Saturday. For every Lotto line played, UK players automatically receive a Millionaire Raffle code printed on their ticket.

Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Time really is running out for the winner of this prize, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward at the very last minute to claim the money. We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets one final time or look anywhere a missing Lotto ticket could be hiding. This life-changing prize could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there.”

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket.
