Are you Coventry's missing millionaire? Hunt on for mystery National Lottery winner

Tristan Harris 25th Feb, 2021 Updated: 25th Feb, 2021

AN APPEAL has been launched to find the holder of a £1million EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker prize ticket bought in Coventry for the November 6 draw which has still not been claimed.

It needs to be cashed in before May 5, 2021, or the prize will be lost. The code on the ticket is XNRJ 58133.

To help jog the memory of the missing millionaire, National Lottery have teamed up with family-owned Russells Garden Centre in Baginton which will be giving away free Forget-Me-Not seeds on Saturday and Sunday, February 27 and 28, to all customers who visit the centre, while stocks last.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery said it was a fun way of getting the message across.

“With the deadline for the prize fast approaching, it really is a case of urging Coventry’s EuroMillions players to ‘Forget Me Not’ when it comes to checking their tickets.”

Kate Pearson, Director of Russells Garden Centre said: “These free packets of Forget Me Not seeds may just help get the message out there that the prize is still to be claimed, get people talking and jog a few memories, whilst also spreading a bit of cheer in the form of some beautiful free flowers.”

With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the 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 email or call the National Lottery Line on 0333 234 5050.
