Lotto players urged to check tickets as they could be in for £10,000-a-month for 30 years after prize goes unclaimed | The Sun

NATIONAL Lottery players have been urged to check their tickets as they could be in for £10,000-a-month for 30 years – with the top prize currently going unclaimed.

One lucky punter matched the five main numbers and the Life Ball in the Set For Life draw on May 18.

Now lottery bosses have revealed the exact location where the missing winner bought their ticket.

Winners' adviser Andy Carter said: "We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings.

"This amazing prize could really make a massive difference to somebody’s life, and what a way it would be to start the summer. 

"Every single month for the next 30 years – that’s an incredible 360 months – will see the lucky winner banking £10,000, if only they would come forward!

"We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old Set For Life tickets again – the easiest way to do this is via the National Lottery app – or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.

"Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa.

"We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win."

The winning Set For Life numbers on May 18 were 10, 32, 36, 39, 43 and the Life Ball was 2.

In a bid to find the winner, the National Lottery has revealed that they bought their ticket in the Stroud District, Gloucestershire – home to the sleepy towns of Dursley, Minchinhampton, Nailsworth, Painswick, Stonehouse, Berkeley, Stroud and Wotton-under-Edge.

The area is known for its Neolithic burial grounds, Roman forts and Victorian mills – but history could be made there once again if a local comes forward with a matching Set For Life ticket before it's too late.

If you think you have a matching ticket, you have until November 14 to claim your prize.

Any punter who thinks the jackpot is theirs but has mislaid their ticket must come forward within 30 days of the May 18 draw.

All the prize money will go to National Lottery projects if no winner claims it before the November 14 deadline.

It comes after a woman who won EuroMillions at the age of 17 said she splashed a lot of cash on cosmetic surgery and a purple Range Rover – until someone gave her a piece of advice.
