THE clock is ticking for a mystery lottery winner in Reading who has just one week left to claim a prize worth £1,000,000.

The search is still on to find the owner of a winning ticket worth £1,000,000 from the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker prize draw from September 3, 2019.

The ticket was bought in Reading with the winning Millionaire Maker code HKZJ 07361.

The lucky ticket-holder only has until Sunday, March 1, to make their claim.

With just one week 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.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Time really is running out for the winner of this prize, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward at the very last minute to claim the money.

"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 Reading area alone more than 900 individual National Lottery grants have been awarded to help projects across the arts, sports, heritage, health, education, environment, charity and voluntary sectors.
