Have your say

A £250,000 winning lottery ticket bought in Portsmouth has yet to be claimed.

The National Lottery says the search is now on to find the owner of the Lotto Plus 5 ticket.

They say it was bought in the Portsmouth area and that the winning numbers on Thursday, May 19 were 3, 17, 20, 24, 44, 45.

The lucky ticket-holder – who matched the six main numbers to win the top prize – now has until 5.30pm on November 15 to make their claim. If no-one comes forward before the prize claim deadline, then the money – plus all the interest it has generated – will go to good causes.

A National Lottery spokesman said: ‘We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could 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.’

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket within the 180-day deadline should call 0845 910 0000.
