A mystery UK EuroMillions ticket holder has only three weeks to claim their £1 million EuroMillions prize.

The lucky winner has less than a month to come forward for the top prize from the January draw.

National Lottery chiefs confirmed that nobody has come forward to claim the whopping seven figure amount which was won on January 15.

Players are being urged to check their tickets in the remaining weeks before the prize expires on July 14.

The winning slip was bought in Sefton, Merseyside and the number for the £1 million was MNGF22971.

Lottery players should check their tickets here or by downloading the National Lottery app.

Those playing online through the National Lottery website or app will receive an email notifying them that they have won.

Retail tickets can also be scanned on the National Lottery app to check if you have won.

There is a six month countdown for every winning ticket to claim the prize money and if the deadline passes with no one having come forward, the money is donated to National Lottery-funded charities.

Another lucky ticket holder who bought their ticket in Lewisham has just over a month to claim their jackpot prize.

The UK Millionaire Maker jackpot was won on January 29, leaving the winner until July 28 to claim their money.

The jackpot’s winning number for the staggering pot was VSHS38986.

There are nine cash prizes currently unclaimed, according to the National Lottery figures, and seven of them are £1 million prizes.

A lucky Brit who won a staggering £111 million EuroMillions jackpot saw the prize paid out earlier this month.

The anonymous winner was successful in the draw on Friday, June 4 and claimed the sum last week.

Camelot's Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “We’re delighted that we’ve been able to pay out this amazing EuroMillions jackpot prize – the ninth biggest in National Lottery history – and we hope that the lucky ticket-holder will enjoy their win."

The win is the fourth EuroMillions jackpot to be paid out in the UK this year.
