The search is on to find the owner of the winning ticket which was bought in Hull. For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket. The winning code on 10 July was VCY513088 and the lucky ticket-holder has until Wednesday 6 January, 2016 to claim their prize.
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.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life."

The coroner in the inquest of a little girl who died after surgery complications at a controversial children's heart unit ruled a "narrative verdict" on her death.
Four-year-old Mylee Weetman lost her battle when surgery to remove excess muscle in her heart led to two strokes, causing her brain to be "starved of oxygen".
She died days later, shortly before the unit at Leeds General Infirmary, West Yorks., was shut over concerns of its high death rates.
An inquest into the youngster's death heard how she could have been saved had doctors performed the correct scans and recognised the seizures sooner.
The two-week hearing at Wakefield Coroners' Court also heard how mother Siobhan Casey was "still waiting" for answers as to why Mylee died.
Mylee, from Doncaster, South Yorks., had been born with a heart defect called tetralogy of Fallot, meaning she had a hole in her heart as well as other complications.
She had surgery to correct this when she was 13 months - although was told she'd need further surgery to remove excess muscle in March 2013.
She died after extensive brain damage following the surgery.

An appeal to the High Court for a judicial review into Lincolnshire County Council’s plan to cut the number of libraries from 45 to 15 has failed.
After a week long hearing, a High Court judge dismissed the legal challenge on all grounds.
Under the plans, the council will continue to provide 15 major libraries, along with online services and specialist support for those unable to reach their nearest library because of, for instance, disability, age or ill health.
These will be complemented by around 30 community hubs, including library services, developed in partnership with local community groups who will also be given over £5,000 per year towards their running costs and access to a one-off grant of up to £15,000 for changes to buildings or equipment.
In addition, the authority is undertaking a competitive procurement to seek an external organisation to potentially deliver library services on its behalf, including the support for the community hubs. This follows an approach by Greenwich Leisure Limited, a not-for-profit organisation interested in running local libraries.
Because of the work involved in a competitive procurement, it is likely to take until the end of 2015 before a final decision is reached on who will run the service.
