A winning £1m EuroMillions ticket bought in Portsmouth has gone unclaimed for more than 180 days

Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: ‘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.

‘However, the money will now add to the more than £30m raised each week for National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

‘We’re encouraging everyone to check their tickets online by downloading the National Lottery app or at national-lottery.co.uk.

‘Players can also buy and check tickets in retail. Playing online via the app or website means that your ticket is checked, and you get an email notification if you win a prize. You can also scan your retail tickets on the National Lottery app to check if you're a winner.’

Anyone who has any queries or 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 0333 234 5050 or email [email protected].
