One lucky person has won the National Lottery’s Set For Life top prize of £10,000 every month for 30 years — but they risk missing out on the mammoth prize if they don’t claim it before November 2
A mystery National Lottery winner who has scooped £10,000 a month for the next 30 years is being urged to check their ticket – or face losing cash for good.
There are less than two weeks left to find the missing £10,000-a-month-for-30-years Set For Life top prize winner from a ticket bought in the Three Rivers District for the draw on 6 May 2021.
Anyone who may have bought a ticket in the area on that day is being told to dig out their tickets or remind their friends and family to do the same.
They have until midnight on Tuesday 2 November, 2021, to claim the prize.
The National Lottery has launched a hunt for the potential winner, taking a giant replica of the winning Set For Life ticket to Rickmansworth Town to help track down the elusive mystery winner and unite them with their life-changing win.
The National Lottery has been doing some number crunching to discover the habits of previous winners, with 25% checking their figures within hours of a draw.
Around 33% waited a day to check.
But in the area where the potential winner could reside, 22% admitted to forgetting their ticket completely, while 4% said they were hanging onto their tickets to daydream about what they would do with the money.
The top signs that winners have previously seen before they won big may also be a nudge for the missing ticket-holder.
From vivid dreams, psychic predictions and tarot card readings, to gut feelings, a wish on a shooting star and pennies dropped in wishing wells – all these signs resulted in life-changing National Lottery wins.
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery said, “With only days to go until the ticket is due to expire it’s important that the Three Rivers District mystery ticket-holder stops the daydreaming, checks their Set For Life ticket, contacts us and presents their winning ticket so we can pay out this life-changing prize!
“With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket. Anyone who has any queries or 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 0333 234 5050 or email [email protected] ”
Andy continued, “Whether they are an HGV driver who wished on a shooting star or a carer who was given a winning prediction, we are ready and waiting, with the Champagne on ice, ready to pay out the first monthly £10,000 instalment, and then £10,000 every month for the next 30 years!
“As the days continue to tick by, we’re doing everything we can to find this ticket-holder and while there is still time, there’s still hope we will be successful. In the past major prizes have been claimed right at the last minute, so there’s every reason to believe our efforts today will be just as successful.”
The life-changing winning Set For Life ticket, bought in the Three Rivers District, matched the five main numbers and the Life Ball in the Set For Life draw on 6 May 2021.
The winning numbers on that date were 2, 7, 25, 40, 46 and the Life Ball was 4. The deadline to claim is at midnight on 2 November 2021.
