Lottery hunts £10,000-a-month Set For Life winner in UKs millionaire postcode

The National Lottery are hunting for the winner of a life-changing Set For Life draw in one of the UK's luckiest postcodes.

Lottery bosses launched a search today (Tuesday, June 20) for the top prize winner who is now entitled to an eye-watering £10,000 a month for 30 years.

The draw took place on June 5 but after more than two weeks the lucky entrant, who bought their ticket in the South Holland district of Lincolnshire, still hasn't claimed the prize.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery said: "We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings, this amazing prize could really make a massive difference to somebody’s life, and what a way it would be to enjoy this summer and the next 30.

"We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old Set For Life tickets again – the easiest way to do this is via the National Lottery app – or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding."

He added: "Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa. We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win."

The winning numbers were 2, 5, 21, 34, 35 and the Life Ball was 6.

If the winner finds their ticket they have until December 2, 2023, to claim their prize.

Anyone not in possession of their ticket but who reckons they have a genuine claim to the winnings can write Camelot, but it must be within 30 days of the draw.

If no one claims the prize before December 2, 2023, the cash and interest will go towards helping National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

This isn't the first time someone from this area has had their world potentially turned upside down in the nationwide draw.

The PE postcode, belonging to Peterborough but covering South Holland, is one of the luckiest places in the UK according to recent data from the National Lottery.

Since the competition began, 119 millionaires have been made in this region alone, making it the eighth-most fortunate postcode in the country for jackpot wins.

Birmingham is the UK's luckiest area with 205 millionaires made since the lottery began, followed by Belfast with 174, Glasgow in third with 158, Sheffield with 150, and Liverpool and Newcastle in joint fifth with 136 millionaire jackpot winners apiece.

Rounding out the top 10 are Manchester in sixth, followed by Cardiff in seventh, Peterborough in eighth, Coventry, Leicester, and Nottingham in joint ninth, and Doncaster in 10th.
