It could be you! Search is on for £1 million lotto winner from Hull

Winning ticket expires on February 23rd Credit: PA

The search is on for the winner of a £1 million pound lottery prize in Hull, which expires in a week's time.

The ticket - which was for the Team GB inspired Lotto medal draw on August 27th - was bought in Kingston upon Hull and expires on February 23rd.

The one-off Lotto draw was held to thank National Lottery players for the support they have given Team GB through playing the lottery.

Every week Lotto Millionaire Raffle guarantees to create two millionaires but the missing winner, who bought their Lotto ticket in Kingston Upon Hull, was one of 27 millionaires created in the draw to celebrate 27 Gold medals won in Rio.

In addition, 23 prizes of £100,000 to equal the Silver medal haul and 17 additional prizes of £50,000 to match those Bronze medals won by Team GB were also up for grabs.

We're eager to find Hull's mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings - this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody's life. Team GB's success in Rio, when their haul was a whopping 67 medals, was outstanding and worthy of celebration with an extra special Lotto draw, now we just need to find Hull's winner to help them celebrate their own win!

– Andy Carter, Senior Winners' Advisor at The National Lottery

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.
