A search has been launched for a mystery lottery winner who has yet to claim a £7.4 million prize.

The lucky ticket was purchased in the Midlands on 18 June, with the winner matching all six numbers 11, 14, 36, 39, 42 and 59, with bonus ball 21.

Lotto operators Camelot are keen to track down the lucky person and have enlisted Wolverhampton Wanderers legend Steve Bull to help.

The former Wolves striker urged lotto players to check their tickets and added he wished it was him who had won.

“Get out there now and try and find that ticket because this is life-changing money,” he said while making an appeal at Wolves Molineux Stadium, in West Midlands, on Friday.

He added: “This is a lot of money and someone in Wolverhampton has won it."

Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said. "We know that ticket was bought in the Wolverhampton area.

"We're encouraging the people of Wolverhampton to search high and low, check behind sofas, in glove compartments and in drawers."

It comes as the biggest ever EuroMillions jackpot of an estimated £186 million was announced on Friday after no one won the jackpot.

National Lottery players failed to predict the main and lucky star numbers in Friday’s £170 million jackpot draw, meaning the prize rolls over to next Tuesday.

Carter added: “Tuesday will be huge, with a stunning estimated EuroMillions jackpot of £186 million up for grabs.

“One lucky winner could help a lot of causes close to their heart.

”Players should get their tickets early to be in with a chance of winning in this amazing draw.”

There have been a series of major EuroMillions wins in recent months, with £109 million claimed in February and £184 million in May.
