A LUCKY lotto player has not claimed a £1 million prize – more than two weeks after the winning draw.
The punter scooped the prize in the UK Millionaire Maker draw on March 31st – but it remains one of four £1 million prizes not yet claimed.
The draw number was JBQS10867 and the winning ticket was bought in Warwickshire.
But there is no rush as the winner has six months to claim it – and if they don't come forward the cash will go to the good causes fund.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings, this amazing prize could really make a massive difference to somebody’s life.
"We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old EuroMillions 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.
"We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win."
