Hunt For Lotto Winner Continues!

A life-changing £1,000,000 and a Private Chalet Escape EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker prize remains unclaimed in Swansea.

Swansea City's first team coach is the latest to join the search, encouraging people to check their old EuroMillions tickets.

On the back of the Swans' victory over Arsenal earlier this week, Alan Curtis was pictured with the missing millionaire's £1,000,000 cheque in front of the Liberty Stadium.

Every week EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker guarantees to create two millionaires - one on Tuesday and one on Friday - but as part of the special Christmas Mega Week five players, including one lucky ticket-holder who bought their ticket in Swansea, won a guaranteed £1m prize plus a Private Chalet Escape in the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday 22 December, 2015. 

To show the people of Swansea what they could be missing and to encourage them to check their EuroMillions tickets, The National Lottery is bringing a taster of the ticket-holder's snow-covered adventure to the Liberty Stadium… in the form of a giant, chalet-themed snow globe.

The unique installation will be in place ahead of the Swans' next home game against Norwich City on Saturday (5 March) and fans are being invited to come along and have their picture taken in the snowy scene, and enjoy a complimentary hot chocolate1, whilst being encouraged to double-check their EuroMillions tickets for the winning UK Millionaire Maker code.

For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a UK Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket. The winning UK Millionaire Maker code for the ticket bought in Swansea is BVV958425 and the lucky ticket-holder has until 19 June, 2016 to come forward and claim their prize.2

A National Lottery spokesperson 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. 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.

"What with the Swans beating Arsenal earlier in the week and a millionaire somewhere in Swansea, this could be a double-winning week for the city!"

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. The National Lottery changes the lives of individuals as well as communities - players raise, on average, over £34 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week.
