ORGANISERS of the EuroMillions lottery have released crucial details in an attempt to track down the winner of a sizeable unclaimed prize.
Someone bought a lotto ticket in Northampton which could bag the owner a hefty £220,132.50 in prize money.
The ticket was bought for the draw on October 27, 2023 and managed to match the five main numbers as well as one Lucky Star number.
The winning EuroMillions numbers on that date were 29, 33, 35, 48, 49 and the Lucky Star numbers were 3 and 8.
The lucky ticket-holder has until April 24, 2024 to claim their prize.
In an attempt to find the winner, Camelot has revealed the draw took place on the night England’s Lionesses defeated Belgium 1-0 in their Uefa Women’s Nations League game.

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 to Camelot, but it must be within 30 days of the draw.
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery said: “If you bought a EuroMillions ticket in Northampton for the draw on October 27, it’s time to look everywhere – in the pockets of clothes you might have been wearing at the time, bags, in the car, wallets and purses and in that sideboard or drawer where we all tend to put bits and pieces – and check your tickets.
“Do you live or work in this area, do you have family and friends there who you were visiting or were you just passing through?
“We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and pay out their life-changing prize – imagine the possibilities for them.

Players can buy and check their tickets online by downloading the National Lottery app or at the website national-lottery.co.uk.
Players can also buy and check tickets in retail.
Playing online via the app or website means that your ticket is checked, and you get an email notification if you win a prize.
You can also scan your retail tickets on the National Lottery app to check if you're a winner.
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.
By playing any National Lottery game, players generate £30million each week for National Lottery-funded projects.
This money helps fund projects across the nation, with over 670,000 grants – supporting projects both big and small – having been made across the UK to date and over £47billion having been raised for Good Causes.
