One lucky winner from the draw on Friday, March 13, has still to check their ticket and come forward to claim their £1m prize, with the ticket being bought in North Tyneside.
The winning code on March 13 was FPY442445 and the lucky ticket-holder has until Wednesday, September 9, to claim their prize.
If no one comes forward with the winning ticket before the deadline, then the prize money, plus the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life.
“Being able to guarantee two UK millionaires every week with EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker is fantastic and we’re urging everyone who bought a EuroMillions ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding, so that this prize can turn someone into the newest member of the lottery millionaire club.
“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.”
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.
