Whopping £185m EuroMillions lottery jackpot STILL not claimed as Brits urged to check their tickets | The Sun09/29/2023
A WHOPPING £185million EuroMillions lottery prize is still up for grabs with Brits urged to check their tickets.
The ticket-holder purchased their golden ticket in north Norfolk but has not officially scooped the jackpot.
National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets for the chance to claim this life-changing prize.
The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, who matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the draw on September 15, 2023.
The winning EuroMillions numbers on that date were 12, 14, 21, 45, 48 and the Lucky Star numbers were 8 and 11.
The lucky ticket-holder has until March 13, 2024, to claim their prize.

Anyone not in possession of their ticket, for whatever reason, but who believes they have a genuine claim can still make a claim in writing to Camelot.
However, any punters must get in contact within 30 days of the draw.
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery said, “We’re really desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings, this fantastic prize could make a huge difference to somebody’s life.
"We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old EuroMillions tickets again 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 our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.
“Players can buy and check their tickets online by downloading the National Lottery app or at national-lottery.co.uk.
"Players can also buy and check tickets in retail. Playing online via the app or website means that your ticket is checked, and you get an email notification if you win a prize.
"You can also scan your retail tickets on the National Lottery app to check if you're a winner.”
If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the deadline then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.
The first EuroMillions draw took place on February 7, 2004, by three organisations: France's Française des Jeux, Loterías y Apuestas del Estado in Spain and the Camelot in the UK.
The record for the biggest EuroMillions win remains the £195million, won by an anonymous Brit in 2022.
Britain's previous EuroMillions record holders were Joe and Jess Thwaite.
The couple won a record-breaking £184million jackpot in May 2022 and the family shared hopes of a Hawaiian holiday and a new horse box for their children's ponies.
Another previous UK winner whose whole life was altered with their jackpot was a player who wanted to remain anonymous on October 8, 2019. They walked off with a cool £170,221,000.
