A mystery lottery winner still needs to come forward two weeks after the winning £1million ticket was drawn. The National Lottery is now on the hunt for the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker player after the ticket was bought in the Rhondda Cynon Taf area.

The game guarantees to create a millionaire in every draw, but the lucky winner from the draw on April 16, 2024, has still to check their ticket and claim their prize. The winning code is XMXB 32530 and the lucky ticket-holder has until October 13, 2024 to claim their prize. For the latest Rhondda news, sign up to our newsletter here

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery said: “If you bought a EuroMillions ticket in Rhondda Cynon Taf for the draw on 16 April, it’s time to look everywhere - in the pockets of clothes you might have been wearing at the time, bags, in the car, wallets and purses and in that sideboard or drawer where we all tend to put bits and pieces - and check your tickets.

"Do you live or work in this area, do you have family and friends there who you were visiting or were you just passing through? We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and pay out their life-changing prize - imagine the possibilities for them! We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win."

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 outlets. 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.
