Month left as £500K Thunderball top prize remains unclaimed in Redditch

Redditch Editorial 15th May, 2024   0

THE CLOCK is ticking for a mystery local lottery winner in Redditch who has just over a month left to claim the Thunderball top prize worth £500,000.

The last-ditch search is still on to find the owner of the winning ticket who matched all five main numbers and the Thunderball in the draw on December 8 2023.

The missing ticket was bought in Redditch and the winning Thunderball numbers on that date were 2, 15, 31, 35, 37 and the Thunderball was 6.

The lucky ticket-holder only has until June 5 2024 to claim their prize.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “It’s been five months since the draw and we’ve not yet been contacted by the rightful ticket-holder to claim their prize, despite numerous appeals.

“However, while there is still time there is still hope – we’ve received valid claims on major National Lottery unclaimed prizes right up to the very last minute before – but time is marching on.

“Our appeal is simple: take five minutes out of your day to dig out and check your Thunderball tickets.

“Those five minutes could be the most profitable five minutes of your life and we are ready and waiting for that life-changing phone call to come in to us here at The National Lottery.”

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.
