Mystery Brit EuroMillions winner has just hours left to claim £1m prize

One lucky lottery winner has just hours to claim their new £1million fortune or they will lose it forever.

Everyone who bought a ticket have been urged to check their numbers after one lucky Brit has bagged the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker top prize.

The potential millionaire won the huge jackpot in January but has still not come forward to collect their cash.

And they are now down to the last few hours to claim the life-changing sum.

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

It has a six-month deadline before registering as void at midnight tonight.

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.”
