We have the champagne on ice: Hunt for mystery £76m EuroMillions winner

The mystery winner of a 76 million lottery prize bought their ticket in the Boston and Skegness region, it has been revealed.Lottery operators Camelot said they are still searching for the lucky owner of a EuroMillions ticket that won the jackpot on November 2.Under lottery procedures, if no valid claim for major prizes is received within about two weeks of a draw the area in which the ticket was sold is publicised.This allows Camelot to encourage players to check their tickets while protecting a winner s potential desire to stay anonymous.The company confirmed on Wednesday that the winning ticket was purchased in the Boston and Skegness parliamentary constituency area.Its owner matched five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers to win the entire 76.3 million jackpot.The winning numbers were 5, 15, 17, 37, 44 and the Lucky Star numbers were 7 and 11.Lottery players are now being urged to triple-check their tickets just in case they have won the huge sum.Andy Carter, senior winners adviser at the National Lottery, said it was on standby waiting for the ticket-holder to come forward.He said: We re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings and we re urging everyone to try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags, down the back of the sofa and anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune. We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win. The ticket-holder has until Wednesday May 1 2019 to claim their prize.(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i[ GoogleAnalyticsObject ]=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document, script , // , ga ); ga( create , UA-72310761-1 , auto , { name : pacontentapi }); ga( pacontentapi.set , referrer , location.origin); ga( pacontentapi.set , dimension1 , By Tom Pilgrim, Press Association ); ga( pacontentapi.set , dimension2 , a87cbcdb-f2c3-4830-93b7-a307c7f96c43 ); ga( pacontentapi.set , dimension3 , paservice:news,paservice:news:uk ); ga( pacontentapi.set , dimension6 , story ); ga( pacontentapi.set , dimension7 , composite ); ga( pacontentapi.set , dimension8 , null); ga( pacontentapi.set , dimension9 , null); ga( pacontentapi.send , pageview , { location : location.href, page : (location.pathname + + location.hash), title : We have the champagne on ice: Hunt for mystery xA376m EuroMillions winner });
