There is just a month left for a lucky Euromillions winner to claim the top prize. The search is on for the East Yorkshire winner of the UK Millionaire Maker prize worth £1,000,000 to come forward.
EuroMillions Millionaire Maker guarantees to create a millionaire in every draw but in the special EuroMillions draw on Friday, April 21, 20 guaranteed UK millionaires were created and one lucky winner from the draw has still to check their ticket and come forward to claim their prize. The last-ditch search is on to find the owner of the winning ticket which was bought in East Yorkshire.
Players are being urged to check and double-check their unique EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker code from the special EuroMillions draw for the chance to become an instant millionaire. The winning code on April 21, 2023 for this prize was MJTG 10161 and the lucky ticket-holder only has until October 18, 2023 to claim it, reports Hull Live.
For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket. Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, “Time is running out for this ticket-holder! We’re urging everyone to double-check their EuroMillions tickets, and have a look in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa.
“This money could really make a difference to someone’s life, and this is the only prize left to be claimed from the special EuroMillions draw. We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the last of the 20 UK winners from the draw comes forward to claim their prize.”
Players can buy and check their tickets online by downloading the National Lottery app or at national-lottery.co.uk. Players can also buy and check tickets in retail. Playing online via the app or website means that your ticket is checked, and you get an email notification if you win a prize. You can also scan your retail tickets on the National Lottery app to check if you’re a winner.
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. By playing any National Lottery game, players generate £30M each week for National Lottery-funded projects.
This funds everything from hundreds of small projects in local communities, to supporting the growth of women’s and girls’ football right across the four nations as the Lionesses made history in this year’s World Cup. To date, over £47BN has been raised for National Lottery Good Causes, with more than 670,000 individual grants awarded.
