EuroMillions ticket-holder urged to come forward and claim £57m jackpot

A EuroMillions jackpot prize worth more than £57 million remains unclaimed in South Ayrshire.

The owner of the winning ticket matched all five main numbers and the two Lucky Stars in the draw on Tuesday March 17.

Players are now being urged to check their tickets for the chance to claim the money in time.

The winning numbers for the draw were 05, 07, 08, 16 and 20, with the Lucky Stars 02 and 12.

The ticket – bought in South Ayrshire – is worth £57,869,670.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with this massive prize, which could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life.

“We’re urging everyone who might have bought a EuroMillions ticket in this area to check their old tickets or look for any missing tickets at home.

“In the current situation, rather than taking a trip to the shop to check your tickets, we’re encouraging everyone to check their numbers online via The National Lottery website or via The National Lottery App.

“While we are all trying to do the right thing by staying indoors at the moment, it’s a good opportunity to dig out and check those old lottery tickets.”

The ticket-holder has until Sunday September 13 to make their claim.

If no-one comes forward before the deadline, the prize money will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.
