‘MILLIONAIRE Seating’ is being introduced at Ealing’s Rooftop Film Club.

The idea comes from the National Lottery, to remind people to check their Lotto tickets, as a £1m jackpot prize remains unclaimed.

Available on a first-come basis, the Millionaire Seating offers film-goers a taste of luxury lifestyle as they catch one of the 20 classic and cult films on offer at the Rooftop Film Club., Springbridge Car Park, Ealing Broadway.

Featuring a day bed, replete with scatter cushions and throws, to ward off the twilight chill, would-be millionaires are safely detached from the ‘hoi polloi’ behind velvet swags.

And an ice bucket is on hand to ensure that, if needed, the celebratory champagne is icy cool. The life-changing Lotto Jackpot ticket, bought in the borough of Ealing for the draw on Saturday, June 28, matches the winning numbers 8, 12, 28, 30, 43, 49.

The owner has until Christmas Day to claim, after which time the money will go to benefit projects funded by The National Lottery.1 A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re hoping lots of film buffs will enjoy the Millionaire Seating and that among them will be Ealing’s missing millionaire.

“Or maybe the vibes will float down from the rooftop film club to those on ground level and prompt the ticket-holder to check their ticket!

“It’s one of our more unusual tactics to help find the mystery winner, but if the ticket-holder comes forward soon they could enjoy a stress-free summer holiday, watching all the films they want - or maybe even produce their own film!”

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.
