The National Lottery is hunting for a winner who is a secret millionaire in Milton Keynes.
The lucky winner from the Lotto draw on Wednesday, February 15 has still to check their ticket and claim their prize.
Players in Milton Keynes are being urged to check and double-check their unique Lotto Millionaire Raffle code for the chance to become an instant millionaire.
The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket which was bought in Milton Keynes.
For every Lotto line played, players automatically receive a Lotto Millionaire Raffle code printed on their ticket.
The winning code on 15 February 2017 was BLUE 6946 0642 and the lucky ticket-holder has until August 14, 2017 to claim their prize.
Anyone not in possession of their ticket, for whatever reason, but who believes they have a genuine claim can still make a claim in writing, but it must be within 30 days of the draw.
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.
The National Lottery changes the lives of individuals as well as communities – players raise, on average, over £30 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery said: “We’re eager to find the mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life.
“We’re urging everyone who bought a Lotto ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.
“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa – someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune.
“We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.”
