Mystery EuroMillions winner has just ONE DAY to claim £1million prize – or lose it forever

A MYSTERY lottery winner has just one day to claim their £1million prize or face losing it forever.

Punters are urged to check their tickets after the lucky Brit scored the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker top prize.

The player won the jackpot in January but has not come forward to collect their winnings.

Now, they have only hours left to claim the £1million fortune.

The ticket, with winning code VSHS38986, was bought in Lewisham, south east London, before the draw on January 29.

It has a six-month deadline which expires tomorrow on July 28.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Time really is running out for the winner of this prize, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward at the very last minute to claim the money.

“We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets one final time or look anywhere a missing EuroMillions ticket could be hiding.

“This life-changing prize could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there.”

'LIFE-CHANGING' SUM

If no-one comes forward before the deadline, the prize money will go to help National Lottery funded projects across the UK.

If you have the winning ticket, you can call the National Lottery Line on 0333 234 5050.

In June, shopkeeper Mehmet Ozer revealed he had won the Lotto for the third time in 10 years, scooping a fortune of more than £600,000.

And in April, one lucky Brit scooped a £59 million jackpot with EuroMillions.

In the same month, a £122m jackpot was paid out to one UK player - becoming the fifth-biggest ever National Lottery winner and putting them squarely on the Times Rich List.

Lottery winners can sign an agreement for full publicity if they want to release information about themselves, or remain anonymous.

The winner of the biggest UK EuroMillions prize, £170m in October 2019, decided to keep their identity a secret.

The jackpot had rolled over an incredible 22 times in a row, including four at the previous €190 million cap.

Colin and Chris Weir won £161million on the EuroMillions in 2011, making them the second biggest winners, while Adrian and Gillian Bayford scored £148.6 million in 2012, putting them in third place.
