THE hunt is on for a secret millionaire from the Redcar and Cleveland area after a winning ticket is yet to be claimed.

The National Lottery is on the hunt for a EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker winner from the special EuroMillions Event Draw on November 8, which created 25 millionaires to celebrate The National Lottery’s 25th birthday.

One of the lucky winners from the draw has still to claim their prize. Players in Redcar and Cleveland are being urged to check and double-check their unique EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker code for the chance to become an instant millionaire.

For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a EuroMillions Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket. The winning code on 8 November 2019 for this prize was ZJQC 10497 and the lucky ticket-holder has until May 6, 2020 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.

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK. Call National Lottery Line on 0333 234 5050 or email
