Huge £58m Lottery ticket must be claimed in two days or winner loses jackpot

A mystery £58million EuroMillions winner has just two days to come forward for their prize or risk losing the huge windfall forever.

A claim was made for the prize but it was not paid out as the search for the secret multimillionaire continues.

Lottery organisers Camelot refused to go into detail about why the claim was not successful.

The life-changing £58million ticket was bought in South Ayrshire, Scotland, for the EuroMillions draw on March 17.

It matched five balls and the two lucky stars – five, seven, eight, 16, 20 with the lucky stars being two and 12.

The deadline to claim the money is now just two days away on Sunday (September 13) so punters are being urged to check and double-check their tickets to make sure they don't miss out.

The highest jackpot to go unclaimed remains a staggering £63.8million prize from 2012, when a ticket bought in the Stevenage and Hitchin area of Hertfordshire was not produced in time.

A host of other big prizes are also yet to be claimed according to the National Lottery's website.

They include a £1 million EuroMillions ticket bought in Leeds, West Yorkshire, on March 20 and a £1 million Lotto ticket bought in West Lancashire on August 1.

Andy Carter, of the National Lottery, said of the mystery £58million winner: "We are desperate to find this mystery holder and unite them with this massive prize."

If a successful claim is not made then the fortune will go to the Lottery Good Causes Fund.

A Camelot spokesman said: "We don't comment on the details of individual prize claims."
