UK National Lottery organizers, Camelot, are still searching for the holder of a winning Euromillions Raffle ticket purchased last year in Warwick. Lottery chiefs are so desperate to find the missing winner they recently dressed up a few Camelot representatives in the attire of olde worlde knights and sent dispatched them to Warwick Castle in the hopes of jogging a few memories.
A National Lottery spokesperson stated: "We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings. This amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life. With the help of our knights we’re hoping to get people checking their tickets before the ‘knights’ run out and the deadline to claim passes."
The ticket, bearing the selection 'GRN686516' won the £1 million raffle prize on Tuesday, December 31, 2013, and time is fast running out for the ticket holder. If they don't present their ticket by this Sunday (June 29) the prize will be lost.
"Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa for this missing ticket, in fact anywhere where a missing ticket could be hiding," the lottery spokesperson said. "We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward in time to claim their win."
If the lucky winner fails to come forward before the deadline the prize money, along with all interest earned, will be allocated to National Lottery Good Causes.
