One lucky Harrow resident could be a millionaire in an instant - if they come forward for unclaimed lottery win

The lucky EuroMillions winner from Harrow has less than one month to claim the huge prize

Have you won £1,000,000?

A potential millionaire is hiding in Harrow borough - who has yet to claim a life-changing lottery win.

The clock is ticking for a mystery lottery winner who has less than a month left to claim the EuroMillions Mega Week prize of £1,000,000 plus an "Ultimate Luxury Safari".

The National Lottery has made a last-ditch plea to find the owner of the winning ticket from the draw on March 31 this year, bought in Harrow borough, with the winning UK Millionaire Maker code VRVP 23883.

The lucky ticket-holder only has until September 27 to make their claim.

With less than a month to go, National Lottery players are being urged to check and double-check their tickets one last time for the chance to claim this life-changing prize.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: "Time is fast running out for the winner, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward at the very last minute to claim the prize.

"We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets one final time or look anywhere a missing EuroMillions ticket could be hiding.

"This life-changing prize could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there."

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.

In the London Borough of Harrow alone, nearly 650 individual National Lottery grants have been awarded to help projects across the arts, sports, heritage, health, education, environment, charity and voluntary sectors.

Every week, EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker guarantees to create four millionaires – two on Tuesday and two on Friday – but with special EuroMillions Mega Week draws, there are more guaranteed UK £1million prizes to be won.

The Harrow winner has until September 27 to claim

For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a UK Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket.

With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket.

Anyone who has any queries or who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0844 338 7551 or email help@national-lottery.co.uk

Anyone concerned about lost or unchecked tickets may like to consider either setting up a National Lottery Direct Debit or playing online at www.national-lottery.co.uk.

Numbers can be entered in advance and lucky winners are notified online if their numbers come up.
