Someone in Cambridgeshire could be sitting on a lottery ticket worth millions of pounds – after a winning ticket was bought near the county border. The winning Set for Life ticket was purchased in the South Holland district of Lincolnshire which includes towns and villages including Spalding, Crowland, Holbeach and Long Sutton.
The district is a short drive from areas of Cambridgeshire including Peterborough, Wisbech and Thorney. So anyone from those towns who picked up a ticket while in the area may have won themselves a fortune.
The unclaimed winning ticket was for the Set for Life draw on Monday, June 5. People have to match five balls and the Life Ball to scoop the jackpot.
The five matching numbers were 2, 5, 21, 34 and 35. The Life Ball was six.
The prize entitles the winner to £10,000 a month for 30 years. A total of £3.6million pounds over the course of three decades – certainly not the kind of money you want to lose down the back of the settee.
The winner has until December 2 to claim the prize. After this the prize, and any interest on it, will be spent on National Lottery projects across the country.
