The National Lottery has asked EuroMillions players to check their tickets from last month — because they might be a millionaire without realising it.
A winning ticket for the Millionaire Maker draw was bought in St Helens, Merseyside on September 14, the day of the draw, and is worth an eye-watering £1,000,000.
But the clock is ticking for the lucky person, who won via an automatic code included with their main EuroMillions draw ticket, to claim their prize. They have until March 13 2022 to claim their winnings.
Anyone not in possession of their ticket, for whatever reason, but who believes they have a genuine claim can still make a claim in writing to Camelot, but it must be within 30 days of the draw.
The winning code was ZZST 95765.
Camelot’s 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.
"We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old EuroMillions tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding."
The National Lottery say that if no one comes forward to claim the prize money before the deadline, all of the money will go towards National Lottery funded projects across the UK.
People can check their tickets online at national-lottery.co.uk or by downloading the National Lottery app.
