Lottery prize of £700,000 is unclaimed in Co Armagh

A LOTTERY prize of over £70,000, won by ticket bought in County Armagh, has not yet been claimed.

And an appeal has been made for whoever bought the winning National Lottery ticket to come forward.

The prize is worth £73,263, matching the five plus bonus ball prize tier for the Lotto draw of 11 August, 2012.

The winning numbers were 1, 5, 14, 18, 34, 44 and the bonus ball was 23. The ticket holder has until Thursday, 7 February, 2013, to claim the prize.

Two weeks ago another winning ticket bought in County Armagh was successfully claimed after a public appeal by the National Lottery operator, Camelot.

The prize of £332,649.70 was from the EuroMillions draw on Friday 6 July, 2012. The winner opted not to take full publicity and, therefore, no further information was released about the win.

If no-one comes forward with the latest winning ticket before the prize claim deadline then the prize money, plus all the interest the prizes have generated, will go to The National Lottery Good Causes – adding to the £28 billion already raised through sales of lottery tickets since The National Lottery launched in November 1994.

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180 day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.
