Check you purse or wallet now - a lotto ticket with a £1.7m prize could be lurking there.

A life-changing £1,796,081 has yet to be claimed from a ticket bought in the Newry and Mourne District.

The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket, who matched all six numbers in the Lotto draw on Saturday November 29.

The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 6, 11, 18, 19, 38, 42 and the bonus ball was 17.

The lucky ticket-holder has until May 28, 2015, to claim their prize1.

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.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re eager to find the mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life.
