A Lotto prize of £103,531 has yet to be claimed in Exeter. National Lottery players are being urged to double-check their tickets for the chance to claim the prize.
The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, bought in Exeter, who matched five numbers and the bonus ball in the Lotto draw on Wednesday, September 12.
The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 14, 16, 21, 22, 24, 41 and the bonus ball was 32. The lucky ticket-holder has until 11 March 2013 to claim their prize.
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 The National Lottery Good Causes.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: "We're desperate to find this 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 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."
Anyone 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 0845 910 0000.
