COULD it be you? Lottery players are being urged to double-check their tickets after a mystery winner from Swale failed to claim their £55,000 prize.
The winning ticket was bought from a shop in Swale and matched five numbers and the bonus ball in the National Lottery draw on Saturday, July 28.
The numbers on that date were 7, 10, 22, 29, 43, 44 and the bonus ball was 26.
A National Lottery spokesman 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.”
On that day, Faversham Fever took place at the Shepherd Neame Stadium, Mark Cavendish missed out on a medal on the first day of the London Olympics, and Florence and the Machine topped the charts with Spectrum.
The ticket-holder has until January 2013 to claim. Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.
