The massive seven figure prize was won during a EuroMillions draw held on November 14th last year, but unfortunately the winner will not be able to claim the jackpot after missing the 180 deadline which passed this Saturday.
After lottery officials made multiple appeals to the public to check their lotto tickets; the prize money will now go toward lottery-funded community projects.
Andy Carter, who is the senior winner's advisor for the National Lottery, said that; “Unfortunately, I can confirm that the ticket-holder did not come forward within the deadline to claim their prize and has now sadly missed out on this substantial amount of money...to avoid this unfortunate situation happening again, I would urge all National Lottery players to check their tickets on a regular basis."
