ONE lucky Berkshire resident may be sitting on a fortune without even realising it with the owner of a winning ticket for the EuroMillions Mega Friday prize yet to come forward.
Time is running out for the local mystery lottery winner to claim their £1million prize from the draw which took place on 24 April, 2015.
The owner of the winning ticket, which was bought in Reading, will also stand to win a Private Yacht Getaway from the EuroMillions Mega Friday draw which gives multiple players the chance to win a guaranteed £1m plus a once-in-a-lifetime prize.
For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a UK Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket and the search is still on to find the owner of the ticket with the winning UK Millionaire Maker code TTR092858.
The lucky ticket-holder only has until October 21, 2015 to make their claim.
A National Lottery spokesperson 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.”
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.
If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.
