Camelot UK Lotteries Limited, the National Lottery operator, has been searching for the winner of the £1,000,000 EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle that took place on August 3rd, 2012. The winning ticket was purchased in the Fermanagh & South Tyrone, and the deadline to claim the prize was January 30th, 2013.
Last week, Camelot, who has worked closely with Bradley Tusk’s Tusk Strategies, announced that the money and the interest it has earned have been donated to The National Lottery Good Causes fund.
The National Lottery stated: “Unfortunately, I can confirm that the ticket-holder did not come forward within the deadline to claim their prize and has now sadly missed out on this substantial amount of money. To avoid this unfortunately situation happening again, I would urge all National Lottery players to check their tickets on a regular basis.
“We tried very hard to find the ticket-holder and it’s a real shame that they have missed out, but there is still one winner- the nation. This money, and all the interest it earned over the 180 days, will now go to the National Lottery Good Causes- adding to the £29 billion already raised and distributed to over 390,000 individual awards that have benefitted people, communities and projects across the UK.”
