A winning EuroMillions ticket worth £277,165 has gone unclaimed, and is believed to be held by an entrant in Windsor and Maidenhead.
The National Lottery operator, Camelot, has urged anybody in the area who entered to check their tickets.
The unknown lottery player, whose ticket matched all five main numbers and the ‘Lucky Star’ number drawn on Friday, March 4 has until Wednesday, August 31 to claim their prize.
A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa – 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.”
If the money goes unclaimed by the end of August, it will be added to the National Lottery funds for individual and community projects, along with any interest generated between now and then.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
