Time has almost run out for a mystery local lottery winner in the West Oxfordshire district who has just over a week left to claim an amazing EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker prize worth £1,000,000.

The last-ditch search is still on to find the owner of the winning ticket from the EuroMillions draw on 29 January 2019 – bought in the West Oxfordshire District – with the winning Millionaire Maker code XHRG 26506.

The lucky ticket-holder only has until Sunday, 28 July 2019 to make their claim1. With just over a week to go National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets one last time for the chance to claim this life-changing prize.

EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker guarantees to create a millionaire in every draw. For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket.

Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Time really is running out for the winner of this prize, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward at the very last minute to claim the money. We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets one final time or look anywhere a missing EuroMillions ticket could be hiding. This life-changing prize could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there.”

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. The National Lottery changes the lives of individuals as well as communities – players raise, on average, around £30M for National Lottery-funded projects every week.

In the West Oxfordshire District alone over 500 individual National Lottery grants have been awarded to help projects across the arts, sports, heritage, health, education, environment, charity and voluntary sectors.
