ANOTHER big National Lottery prize has been won in County Down - but has yet to be claimed.
The outstanding ticket is worth £216,033.10 and matched 5+1 Lucky Star in the EuroMillions draw on Friday, October 12, 2012. The winning numbers were 6 7 17 35 43 and the two Lucky Stars were 2 and 8. The winner has until 10 April, 2013 to claim the prize.
If no-one comes forward with a winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest the prize has generated, will go to The National Lottery Good Causes – adding to the £28 billion already raised through sales of lottery tickets since The National Lottery launched in November 1994.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re desperate to find the ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – it will 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.”
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.

Earlier this year a ticket bought in Co Down scooped a Lotto jackpot worth £4,392,003.
It had been bought for the draw on 2 June and after a number of appeals by Camelot it was claimed in early September. The winner decided not to go public with the life-changing news.
