The National Lottery is hunting for a missing winner who could be celebrating in style for the next 12 months.

The mystery winner has won £10,00 a month for one year on the Set For Life draw-based game.

National Lottery players are now being urged to double-check their tickets for the chance to claim this life-changing prize.

The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, bought in Sutton, who matched the five main numbers in the Set For Life draw on Monday, October 9.

The winning Set For Life numbers on that date were 06, 11, 29, 40, 44 and the Life Ball was 05.

The lucky ticket-holder has until Saturday, April 6 2024 to claim their prize.

Anyone not in possession of their ticket but believe they have a genuine claim can still make a claim in writing to Camelot, but it must be 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 an enormous difference to somebody’s life. 

“The next 12 months could see the lucky winner banking £10,000 every single one month.

“We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old Set For Life tickets again – the easiest way to do this is via the National Lottery app – or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding. 

“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.”
