Winner of unclaimed £1m EuroMillions prize has 6 DAYS before it's gone forever

By Kieren Williams

The winner of a massive £1million EuroMillions prize is running out of time to claim the prize - with just six days left before it’s gone forever.

One lucky Brit bought their winning ticket back in the summer, but has yet to claim their prize.

Bosses at Camelot said that the winner bought the ticket in Greenwich, London, back in June.

They are urging Londoners to check any old coat pockets and rifle through the rubbish before they run out of time and the life-changing fortune slips through their hands.

Despite the fortune being available for nearly five months, no one has stepped forward.

Next Sunday, November 28, is the deadline for any would-be millionaires as the massive jackpot is then donated to the National Lottery Projects in the UK.

The winner made their fortune as part of EuroMillions' UK Millionaire Maker.

The winning code is ZMFD00211.

However, this is not the only unclaimed prize waiting for its owner to step forward.

An even bigger £4,101,869 win from earlier this month was matched by one ticket-holder who got all six main numbers.

Camelot’s Andy Carter of The National Lottery said the Lotto prize will change the winner's life.

He said: "We’re asking Lotto players to check their tickets as this could be a life-changing win for the lucky ticket-holder.

"We’re hoping that they will now come forward and claim their amazing prize."

There is still hope the unknowing London millionaire could still come forward, even as the deadline fast approaches.

In 2019, one Manchester ticket-holder claimed their £1million prize with only hours to go before it was given away.

However, not every winner was lucky enough to claim in time.

In June 2012, a EuroMillions prize worth an unbelievable £63.8m went unclaimed.

Any win that is not claimed 180 days after a game has been played in the UK goes to National Lottery projects across the country.

Once the claim period is over, the ticket officially expires and the owner will no longer be able to claim any of their winnings.

Unclaimed prizes, plus any interest they might have accumulated in that time, are allocated to the National Lottery’s Good Causes fund instead.
