Hunt is on for Cheshire £1m lottery winner

By on September 30, 2018

The National Lottery is desperately hunting for the EuroMillions ticket holder from Cheshire who is set to scoop a £1m payout from the draw on Tuesday, September 11.

The winning code for the prize was VHVT 02081, and the lucky winner has until 10, March 2019, to claim their winnings.

Ticket holders are being urged to triple check their digits to see if they are successful.

If no one comes forward with the winning ticket before the deadline then the prize money, plus all the interest it generates, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK. If the ticket is lost, but someone still has a genuine claim, they can write to Camelot within 30 days of the draw.

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 huge difference to somebody’s life.

“We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old EuroMillions tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding, so that this prize can turn someone into the newest member of the lottery millionaire club.

“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa. We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.”

Players have 180 days from the day of a National Lottery draw to claim their prize if they have a 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

Anyone concerned about lost or unchecked tickets may like to consider either setting up a National Lottery Direct Debit or playing online at 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 the website.
