One lucky Prestonian is thought to have not come forward after buying a one million pound-winning Euro Millions lottery ticket.
Two weeks ago, on the 1st March, the winning code was revealed as HSXT 12553.
The code represents a ‘Millionaire Maker’ code which is printed on each ticket.
Unfortunately for the missing winner, if the prize is not claimed by August 28th it will no longer be available.
A spokesman for the National Lottery said, ‘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, so that this prize can turn someone into the newest member of the lottery millionaire club.
‘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.’
