Have you been plugging away at work, taking part in the usual daily grind - all the while with a winning lottery ticket in your back pocket?

A EuroMillions Millionaire Maker £1m prize remains unclaimed since the draw earlier this month.

The ticket was bought in the Newry and Mourne area.

As well as the £1m prize, tickets for an ultimate holiday to Rio is also part of the win - and both are just sitting collecting dust waiting on their rightful owner coming forward.

The winning selection on Tuesday, September 13 for this prize was RWD 362 818.

The lucky ticket-holder has until March 12 next year to claim.

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.

Patrick Lisoire from 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 huge 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, 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.”

To help jog EuroMillions players’ memories about what was happening around the date of the draw in question, the Paralympics (7-18 September) were entering the final week of competition with ParalympicsGB continuing to rack up the medals.

Each of the five winners has the choice of either taking the once-in-a-life-time prize, or a cash alternative.

Anyone who has any queries or who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws should call the National Lottery Line on 0844 338 7551 or email
