A £1million EuroMillions prize has still not been claimed after two weeks, the National Lottery said today.

The National Lottery has toured the area in a van designed to grab the attention of everyone it passes by, along with two previous Lottery winners.

The winning ticket was bought in Wirral for the draw on Friday 27 July - the night of the opening ceremony for the Olympics.

That night's draw included a guaranteed 100 UK millionaires created in the Millionaire Raffle game.

The winning selection for this prize was DZY093428 and the lucky ticket-holder has until 23 January 2013 to claim their prize.

Lottery winners Tony and Greta Dodd, from Wallasey, Wirral, who won £2.4m in 2007, today also urged others in the borough to double check their tickets.

“The Opening Ceremony was a huge night for the nation and this amazing draw was truly part of a night to remember, with 100 UK players becoming millionaires as the torch was lit above London.

“However, we’re still waiting for the lucky ticket-holder from the Borough of Wirral to check their tickets and claim their prize."

"We’re urging everyone to look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding so that this prize can turn the lucky winner into the newest member of the National Lottery millionaires’ club.

“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa. We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that they come forward to claim their win.”
