Andy Carter, Senior Winner’s Advisor for Camelot, is on the hunt for the lucky person who won over £5,000,000 in the Birmingham area on the Lotto draw of the 28th September.
The winning numbers that day were 3, 15, 20, 48, 57 and 58. People have until the 27th of March to claim their prize. Could it be you? Maybe worth checking your pockets and behind the sofa, or the app if you buy online.
We spoke with Andy as the hunt for the lucky winner continues and asked a few fellow Brummies for advice on how the lucky winner should spend their millions.
Andy says: “We’re asking everyone in the Birmingham area to sort of look down the back of sofas and in drawers and in glove boxes in cars to find this ticket.”
“This is not the only unclaimed prize in the West Midlands. In June, there was a prize of £7,500,000 bought in the Wolverhampton area and no one has claimed that yet either. If you find your ticket, you need to bring the number on the back of the ticket and make a claim.”
Here’s how the people of Birmingham would spend their lottery winnings if they found out they had the winning ticket
Pat says: “Well, I’d start putting the light on the night. Start putting the heating on all day long. I’d worrying about the energy crisis. I’d probably look out for some of these charities that really need some help. I know the Alexandra Hospital does.”
Craig says: “Well, apart from retire immediately, I’d probably move to Scotland. Sort of along held dream to move to Scotland and live a simpler, quieter life. To get out of Tory controlled England, shall we say? Yeah, and I would never work again. That’s for sure.”
Tim says: “If I found out it was me I’d be quite surprised as I tend not to buy a lottery ticket, but it would be a nice amount to win, I’m sure. If it was me I’d buy my local football team. I think they probably need the help. Might be able to sign a few new players for that money as well.”
