Three mystery National Lottery winners are being urged to come forward as three £1m prizes remain unclaimed.

A total of 360 people became millionaires in 2021 after striking it lucky on the National Lottery and ten more millionaires were guaranteed in the EuroMillions New Year’s Eve draw.

Lottery bosses are telling players to check their tickets with the winners having just weeks to claim their prizes before the cash is given to charity.

Since the first National Lottery draw in 1994 over £45 billion has been raised for good causes.

The winning tickets were bought in Liverpool, Portsmouth and Gloucester.

Camelot’s Andy Carter told The Sun : “We’re encouraging everyone to check tickets.”

It comes after one winner lost out on a £1million after failing to claim their EuroMillions fortune within the 180-day prize deadline.

EuroMillions players in Barnsley and Yorkshire should also check their tickets with prizes totalling more than £200,000 still unclaimed.

A Set For Life prize with the ticket bought in Northampton is also still up for grabs with the winner to receive £10,000 a month for a year.

The appeal comes after a couple who spent two “difficult” years shielding through the pandemic scooped a life-changing £300,000 on a scratchcard.

Greg, 62, and Louisa Tomlinson, 57, peeled off the top prize on a Scrabble Cashword scratch card from the National Lottery

Louisa was at a greater risk after having a stroke and treatments to mend a hole in her heart forcing the couple to shield.

Her ill health had a significant impact on their finances and future plans, but the win has given them new hopes for the future as they plan to splurge out on a rural cottage in Norfolk.

Last year more than £4.7 billion was paid out with 853 players receiving prizes of £50,000 or above.

Builders were the luckiest profession followed by transport drivers, engineers and care workers.

Two UK residents won EuroMillions jackpots £122 million and £111 million although both chose to remain anonymous.

Among this year’s Lotto winners are Paul and Louise Drake, both 47, who banked a £5.1M jackpot in August.

Paul gave up his Lidl job to spend more time on the golf course but Louise is determined to carry on working as a nurse.
