You, your neighbour or someone you know could be sitting on an enormous fortune as a jackpot-winning Lotto ticket bought in the borough remains unclaimed.
The search is on for a jammy punter who’s in line to have a whopping £4,668,787 deposited into his or her bank account.
The golden ticket was bought on Saturday, September 12 and the winning numbers were 14, 20, 28, 31, 40, 46, while the bonus ball was 44.
If the cash isn’t claimed by March 10 next year – 162 days from today – then it will go instead to National Lottery-funded projects across the country.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re eager to find the mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life.
“We’re urging everyone who bought a Lotto ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.
“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa – 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.”
Players are reminded that around the date the ticket was purchased, Dagenham & Redbridge were playing away to Carlisle United (losing 2-1) and Wayne Rooney had a few days earlier become England’s all-time record goalscorer after converting a penalty against Switzerland.
Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket should call the National Lottery on 0845 910 0000 – and don’t forget to brag to the Post by calling 0208 477 3778 or emailing email@example.com.
