Are you the Lottery winner? Punter who won £10,000 every month for the next 30 YEARS in £3.6million jackpot will lose the money if they don’t claim it by TUESDAY
A lottery punter who won a £3.6million jackpot has just days left to claim the jackpot or lose the lot.
The ticket scooped the top 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 number 4.
The winning player bought the ticket in the Three Rivers District of Hertfordshire but the six month deadline to claim it – or lose it – is up on Tuesday.

The winner will receive £10,000 every month for the next 30 years – or £3.6 million.
Camelot’s Andy Carter said: ‘We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket holder and unite them with their winnings.’
What are the rules for the National Lottery’s Set for Life competition?
The National Lottery introduced its Set for Life competition at the beginning of 2019.
Operator Camelot announced the plan in September last year following a slump in ticket sales.
It hoped to reverse the drop in sales, which set in after 2015, when it became harder to win the jackpot.
Camelot’s decision to increase the number of balls from 49 to 59 cut the chance of winning the jackpot from one in 14million to one in 59million.
So it introduced the new ‘annuity’ game designed to pay out over a longer period.
In Set for Life, players pick five numbers from one to 47 and a Life Ball numbered from one to 10.
Prizes start at £5 for matching two numbers. If five numbers are matched without a Life Ball, the winner gets £10,000 a month for one year.
If players match every number and their Life Ball, then they are paid £10,000 a month for three decades.
Should a person die before their time period is up, the winnings are handed to their estate.
