Lotto players urged to check tickets as £54.9m EuroMillions jackpot UNCLAIMED | The Sun

A MYSTERY Brit is sitting on a £54.9MILLION fortune – but has no idea of their life-changing new wealth.

Lottery chiefs have urged ticket-holders to check behind the back of the sofa after a single person won an astonishing jackpot on Friday, June 10.


Six days after the draw, the winner hasn't come forward to claim their whopping prize.

However, bosses at Camelot have revealed he or she matched all five numbers and the two Lucky Star numbers after buying their EuroMillions ticket in a shop.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: "Imagine being a multi-millionaire and not even knowing it.

"It’s just under a week since the draw, but we’re urging all EuroMillions players to check their tickets to be in with a chance of claiming this massive £54.9m EuroMillions jackpot prize.

"This is a truly life-changing EuroMillions win for one lucky ticket-holder and we’re hoping that they will now come forward and claim their amazing prize."

If another week passes by without a claim, the Lottery will reveal the area in which the ticket was purchased.

But the winner has just 180 days to come forward – or risk losing it all.

If the money isn't awarded within that time, it's donated to National Lottery projects and good causes across the country.

Mr Carter said those who bought a ticket for Friday's draw should check their pockets and bags.

“Imagine the possibilities with millions sitting in your bank account – a once-in-a-lifetime holiday or two, a dream pad, a dream set of wheels and treating your nearest and dearest, and so much more," he said.

Another giant jackpot is up for grabs tomorrow.

If a Brit wins the £111million pay-out, they'll be the fourth EuroMillions winner from this country in 2022.

On February 4, an anonymous winner claimed £109m, and on May 10, Joe and Jess Thwaite of Gloucestershire were handed a record-breaking £184m jackpot.

The low-key couple have already spent some of their winnings on a second-hand Volvo – despite being able to afford a fleet of supercars.
