TIME is running out for two local Lotto winners to come forward as over £1million in prize money still remains unclaimed.

The clock is ticking for the mystery local lottery winners in the Bexhill and Hastings area, with just under a month left to claim a jackpot prize worth 850,513, and until 28th June 2010 to claim a prize of 251,657.

All six numbers were matched in the Lotto draw on Wednesday 25 November 2009 resulting in a jackpot win of 850,513.

The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 3, 6, 11, 17, 23, 29, the bonus ball was 44.

The lucky ticket-holder has until 5.30pm on Monday 24 May 2010 to make their claim.

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the deadline the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to The National Lottery Good Causes.

In additional there is another unclaimed prize up for grabs in the local area worth 251,657.

This ticket was also purchased in the Bexhill and Hastings area on 30th December 2009.

The winning numbers are: 5, 14, 27, 29, 34, 35 and the bonus ball was 4.

The last date to claim this prize is 28th June 2010.

A spokesperson for the National Lottery is urging all players to double-check their tickets:

"Time is running out for the winners of these prizes, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward to claim the money.

"We're urging everyone to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing Lotto ticket could be hiding. These life-changing prizes could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there."

With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket.

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket should call the National Lottery Line 0845 910 0000.
