The Search for London’s Missing Millionaire

An unclaimed UK Lotto ticket worth over £1 million has inspired lottery officials to take an unusual approach to locating the missing millionaire. The winning ticket was bought in the London Borough of Ealing and lottery officials have attempted to raise awareness by installing “millionaire's seating” at one of the borough’s most famous institutions.

The Search for London’s Missing Millionaire

Visitors to the Rooftop Film Club atop Ealing’s Springbridge car park can watch films in style in the luxury VIP area, which was cheekily reserved for the missing millionaire.

A National Lottery spokesperson said, “We’re hoping that lots of film buffs will enjoy the Millionaire Seating and that amongst them will be Ealing’s missing millionaire. Or maybe the ‘vibes’ will float down from the rooftop film club to those on ground level and prompt the ticket-holder to check their ticket! It’s one of our more unusual tactics to help find the mystery winner but if the ticket-holder comes forward soon they could enjoy a stress-free summer holiday watching all the films they want, or maybe even produce their own film!”

The winning ticket was for the draw on Saturday 28th June, 2014 and matches the winning numbers, which were 8, 12, 28, 30, 43 and 49 with Bonus Ball 42.

The owner of the winning ticket should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000 before Christmas Day 2014 to claim their prize. If the money goes unclaimed after that date, it will be donated to the Good Causes fund, which uses revenue from lottery ticket sales to fund worthy initiatives across the UK. The next UK Lotto draw will take place on Saturday with a rollover jackpot of £5.7 million. Tickets are on sale now.
