The mystery winner of a £76 million lottery prize bagged the winning ticket in the Boston of Skegness region, where players are urged to ‘triple-check’ their tickets in case they have scooped the prize.
Lottery operators Camelot said they are still searching for the lucky owner of a EuroMillions ticket that won the jackpot on November 2.
If no valid claim for major prizes is received within a two week period of a draw, then the area in which the ticket was sold is publicised.

This then allows Camelot to encourage players to check their tickets, while also protecting a winner’s potential desire to stay anonymous.
It was confirmed on Wednesday 14 November, that the winning ticket was purchased in the Boston and Skegness parliamentary constituency area.
Its owner matched five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers to win the entire £76.3 million jackpot.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, said it was on ‘standby’ waiting for the ticket-holder to come forward.
He said: ‘We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings and we’re urging everyone to try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags, down the back of the sofa and anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding – someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune.
‘We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.’
The ticket-holder has until Wednesday May 1 2019 to claim their prize.
It is the biggest EuroMillions win since Aberdeen couple Fred and Lesley Higgins claimed nearly £57.9 million in July after having their ticket torn in two.
The biggest UK EuroMillions winner this year was an anonymous ticket-holder who banked £121 million in April, while in February another anonymous player won £77 million.
One ticket-holder has all the numbers, meaning they will win a total of £76,369,806.80. The numbers needed to claim the money are 05, 15, 17, 37, 44 and the winning Lucky Star numbers are 07 and 11
Currently the biggest lottery win in the UK is that of Colin and Chris Weir from Largs in North Ayrshire, who won £161 million on EuroMillions in 2011.
Mr Carter said buying a EuroMillions ticket helps to raise money for good causes.
‘On average, around £30 million is raised every week for projects across the UK, both big and small, including funding everything from local community projects to preserving the nation’s heritage,’ he said.
