The UK National Lottery is desperate to find a mystery ticket-holder who won £98k from the EuroMillions draw that took place on August 21st.

Despite numerous appeals, the winner has yet to come forward to claim the massive win. The click is ticking fast to February 17th 2021 when the prize will expire and the money handed over to good causes.

At time of writing all we know is that the ticket was purchased from a retailer in the Newport area of the UK and the lucky winner matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number to win the prize.

The winning numbers on the EuroMillions draw that evening were 10, 15, 35, 44, 50 and the Lucky Star numbers were 3 and 5.
