Have YOU got £57m down the back of your sofa? Mystery Euromillions winner has just FOUR WEEKS left to claim huge jackpot they scooped in March
- Ticket was bought in Ayrshire, Scotland, but hasn’t been claimed in five months
- If not produced by September 13, the £57,879,670 windfall goes to good causes
- Claiming it would make the winner as rich as Daniel Radcliffe and Zayn Malik
A lucky gambler won more than £57 million on the lottery, but is set to miss out on the jackpot if they don’t claim their winnings in the next four weeks.
The winning EuroMillions ticket was bought in Ayrshire, Scotland for a draw back in March but hasn’t been claimed in nearly five months.
If not produced by midnight on September 13, the £57,879,670 windfall will instead go to good causes, The Sun reports.

The ticket holder, whose winning numbers on March 17 were 5, 7, 8, 16, 20 with the Lucky Stars 2 and 12, will instantly become as rich as celebrities such as Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe and Zayn Malik of One Direction fame if they cash in.
Andy Carter, of the National Lottery, said: ‘We’re desperate to find this mystery holder and unite them with this massive prize.
‘We’re urging everyone who might have bought a ticket in this area to check.’
It is not the first time a huge jackpot winner has failed to come forward, however, with an £65m prize going to charity in 2012, while more than £125m was not collected across lottery games throughout 2018.
Mother who scooped £2.3m lottery jackpot still makes her children do house chores
A mother who scooped a £2.3m jackpot on the lottery has revealed she still makes her children earn their pocket money by doing house chores.
Single mother Charmaine Watson, 40, was relying on benefits 15 years ago to help bring up baby son Ryan, when she claimed the winning ticket and her world turned upside down.
She later married childhood friend Robbie, 49, with whom she had two more children, Georgia, 13, and Daniel, 11.
A decade-and-a-half on from landing the windfall, she insists she wants her family to know the importance of hard work, while ensuring they are not brought up any differently to their classmates at school.
She told the Mirror: ‘Even at a young age you need to show them that you have to work for money.
‘Some weeks it’s £5, other weeks £10, it just depends how much they do.
‘We try to keep the money the same as their friends because I don’t want them getting more or less.’
