Could it be your ticket?

National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets for the chance to claim this life-changing prize and start the New Year with a bang.

The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, bought in Buckinghamshire, who matched the five main numbers in the Set For Life draw on 28 December 2020.

The winning Set For Life numbers on that date were 2, 4, 22, 37, 45 and the Life Ball was 10. The lucky ticket-holder has until 26 June 2021 to claim their prize1.

Anyone not in possession of their ticket, for whatever reason, but who believes they have a genuine claim can still make a claim in writing to Camelot, but it must be within 30 days of the draw.2

Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery said, “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings, this amazing prize could really make a massive difference to somebody’s life, and what a way to start the New Year it would be. We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old Set For Life tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.

“In the current situation, we’re encouraging everyone to check their tickets online at national-lottery.co.uk or by downloading the National Lottery app, and to only buy their tickets in retail in line with government guidance. Playing online via the website or app 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.”

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK. By playing any National Lottery game, players help to raise an average of £30M every week for National Lottery Good Causes across the UK. This money helps support arts, community and charity, heritage, education, environment and the sport sectors – everything from the local charity making a difference where you live through to helping our nation’s athletes win Olympic and Paralympic gold medals. To date, more than £42BN has been raised and distributed to National Lottery Good Causes through more than 625,000 individual grants.

With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket. 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]

Anyone concerned about lost or unchecked tickets may like to consider either setting up a National Lottery Direct Debit or playing online at www.national-lottery.co.uk. Numbers can be entered in advance and lucky winners are notified online if their numbers come up. For further information call 0333 234 4433 or visit www.national-lottery.co.uk

If players have any concerns about not being able to get in-store to claim a lower-tier prize, they can get in touch with us (0333 234 50 50), but we would encourage people not to get in touch with us unless they have a ticket nearing the end of its claim period.

‘Set For Life’ is an exciting draw-based annuity game from The National Lottery, launched in March 2019, that offers a top prize of £10K a month for 30 years when the five main numbers and the Life Ball are matched. Players can win £10K a month for a whole year by matching the five main numbers.
