Massive £1m EuroMillions lottery jackpot could go begging in HOURS as Brit is yet to claim prize… could it be you? | The Sun
A LUCKY lottery player has just hours left to claim a mammoth £1 million prize.
The punter won the million-pound prize in a EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker draw in March.
The winning ticket was bought in Warwickshire and the winning draw number is JBQS10867.
But with the six-month deadline to claim looming, the player will lose the small fortune if they don't come forward by Wednesday.
Euromillions' rules give players of "big prizes" exactly 180 days from the draw date to claim their money.
If the punter fails to come forward the prize and any interest earned on it will go to benefit National Lottery Projects across the UK.
