A winner of the special £12 Million Millionaire Raffle game on EuroMillions has yet to come forward to claim the prize. Lottery officials in the United Kingdom are currently seeking the owner of the winning lottery ticket bought in Birmingham.
According to Camelot who manage EuroMillions in Britain, the ticket was bought in the Ladywood area of the city. According to Camelot the area is one of the most deprived areas in the country so this sort of win would certainly be a huge windfall for the owner of the ticket.
We keep harping on about the importance of purchasing Lottery tickets online. This is a prime example of why lottery players should be purchasing tickets online and not at a local news agent. It would be terrible for some person to miss out on this lottery win simply because they have not checked the Millionaire Raffle part of the ticket.
We also do not understand why it is Camelot are not able to do more for lottery players in this instance. Making it obligatory to give Name and Address details when purchasing a lottery ticket will remove all doubt about who the winners are. This does seem like a drastic step but can you imaging missing out on £12,000,000 simply because you forgot to check a line.
Perhaps it is in their interest if the funds are not claimed and go to the Good Causes Fund. That is always possible.
If you are from the Ladywood area in Birmingham, please check your Lottery tickets and share this with all your family and friends. We want to make sure that a winner is found for this huge Millionaire Raffle prize.
