A lucky gambler won more than £57 million on the lottery, but is set to miss out on the jackpot if they don’t claim their winnings in the next four weeks.
The winning EuroMillions ticket was bought in Ayrshire, Scotland for a draw back in March but hasn’t been claimed in nearly five months.
If not produced by midnight on September 13, the £57,879,670 windfall will instead go to good causes, The Sun reports.
The ticket holder, whose winning numbers on March 17 were 5, 7, 8, 16, 20 with the Lucky Stars 2 and 12, will instantly become as rich as celebrities such as Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe and Zayn Malik of One Direction fame if they cash in.
Andy Carter, of the National Lottery, said: ‘We’re desperate to find this mystery holder and unite them with this massive prize.
‘We’re urging everyone who might have bought a ticket in this area to check.’
It is not the first time a huge jackpot winner has failed to come forward, however, with an £65m prize going to charity in 2012, while more than £125m was not collected across lottery games throughout 2018.
