One lucky lottery player in Northumberland is unknowingly sitting on a £1 million win - but they have just one week left to claim the life-changing prize.

All EuroMillions players are automatically entered into the Millionaire Maker draw, which creates at least one guaranteed new millionaire in the UK every Tuesday and Friday with codes printed on EuroMillions tickets. A special draw back on November 3, 2023 saw ten EuroMillions ticket holders turned into millionaires - but while nine of the prizes have so far been collected, one mystery winner in Northumberland is yet to claim their money.

The clock is ticking for the winner, who has until Wednesday, May 1 to get their prize before it goes towards helping National Lottery-funded projects across the UK. The winning Millionaire Maker code was TDWJ 92983, with all players in the county urged to double check their tickets.

Andy Carter, Senior Winners' Advisor at The National Lottery, said: "It's been around five months since the special EuroMillions draw in question, and we've already been able to pay out nine of the ten £1 million prizes won by lucky National Lottery players in the draw. However, we've not yet been contacted by this last remaining winner, who bought their winning ticket in Northumberland, despite numerous appeals."

He added: "While there is still time, there is still hope - we've received valid claims on major National Lottery unclaimed prizes right up to the very last minute before - but time is running out fast. Our appeal is simple: take five minutes out of your day to dig out and check your EuroMillions tickets.

"Those five minutes could be the most profitable five minutes of your life! We are ready and waiting for that life-changing phone call to come in to us here at The National Lottery."

Players can buy and check their tickets online by downloading the National Lottery app or on the National Lottery website, as well as a retailers.
