EuroMillions lottery players across the country are being urged to double-check their tickets, with whoever secured the £76.4m fortune in the draw last Friday seemingly still unaware that they are a multi-millionaire in waiting.
The owner of the winning ticket matched all five main numbers in the draw, which were 5, 15, 17, 37 and 44.
They also matched two lucky star numbers – 7 and 11.If another week goes by with no sign of the winner, The National Lottery will make public the area where the ticket was purchased.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at lottery, said: “The ticket was bought in-store so you should check the places you usually keep your tickets and make sure you’ve checked them all in case you’re the missing winner.
“We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win soon. Our player services team are on standby waiting for the ticket-holder to come forward.
“They have great expertise in helping winners embrace life-changing wins and making sure that they are able to start to enjoy their new found wealth as quickly as possible.
“They will be on hand every step of the way to guide the ticket-holder through the winning experience.”
