The missing Birmingham Lotto jackpot winner matched all six main numbers in the Lotto draw last month (September)

A truly life-changing Lotto jackpot prize of £5,070,357, has yet to be claimed from a ticket bought in Birmingham. National Lottery players are being urged to check their tickets for the chance to claim this staggering amount of money.

The missing Birmingham Lotto jackpot winner matched all six main numbers in the Lotto draw on Wednesday 28 September, 2022. The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 3, 15, 20, 48, 57, 58 and the Bonus Ball was 9.

The ticket-holder has until 27 March 2023 to make their claim.

‘We’re desperate to find Birmingham’s mystery winner’

Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery said, “We’re desperate to find Birmingham’s mystery Lotto jackpot ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings and we’re urging everyone to try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags, down the back of the sofa and anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.

“What with the £7.4M Lotto jackpot prize that is still unclaimed from a ticket bought in Wolverhampton for the Lotto draw on 18 June, Lotto players in the West Midlands are sitting on two massive National Lottery prizes worth a total of nearly £12.5M. It’s time to get these life-changing prizes claimed!

“We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed for both the West Midland’s missing multi-millionaires.”

As with all major prizes (£50,000 and over) bought in retail approximately two weeks after the draw, if no valid claim has been received, the area in which the ticket was purchased is released. This area is provided by Camelot’s security team in line with its licence obligations and is designed to encourage tickets to be checked but also to enable the ticket-holder to remain anonymous if they wish.
