The hunt for the Lottery winner in Trois-Rivières continues before the deadline
The hunt to find the owner of a winning lottery ticket bought from Three Rivers worth £ 10,000 per month for 30 years is still ongoing ahead of a major deadline later this week.
The ticket won first prize in the Set For Life draw on May 6, matching the five main numbers of 2, 7, 25, 40 and 46 and the Life Ball of 4.
Saturday June 5 will mark 30 days since the draw and is the deadline for anyone not in possession of the ticket for any reason but who feels they have a genuine complaint to make one in writing to Camelot, the operator of the National Lottery.
Camelot has the discretion to pay prizes for lost, destroyed or stolen tickets only if the player has submitted a complaint in writing within 30 days of the relevant draw.
If the player can provide sufficient evidence, Camelot will investigate and consider the validity of the claim.
Camelot will then determine at its discretion whether the claim is valid and is able to pay the prize 180 days after the draw.
Andy Carter, Senior Advisor to National Lottery Winners, said: “It is important that any player who is not in possession of their ticket, for whatever reason, but who believes they have a real right to the prize we notify in writing before 5 p.m. on Saturday 5 June 2021 at the latest.
“What a start to the next 30 years it would be for the lucky ticket holder if he checked his tickets and claimed his prize – they would be truly ready for life.” Our fingers crossed to welcome our latest Set For Life winner to the Lottery Winners Club soon.
With the winning ticket in their possession, the ticket holder has until Tuesday, November 2 to file a claim.
