The hunt is underway to find the owner of a lottery ticket worth £9.5 million.

Camelot has revealed that the winning ticket was sold in the South Kesteven area of Lincolnshire and are urging players to triple-check their tickets for the chance to claim the life-changing amount of money.

The winning ticket matched all six main numbers in the Lotto draw on Saturday 7 April 2018, which were 1, 4, 31, 33, 52 and 55. The lucky ticket-holder has until Thursday 4 October 2018 to make their claim.

We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings and we’re urging everyone to try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags, down the back of the sofa and anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding – someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune!

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

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.
