TONIGHT'S EuroMillions jackpot is worth a whopping £186million – here's how you can claim it without the winning ticket.

Should a British ticket holder strike gold tonight they will be crowned the UK's biggest ever lottery winner.

It would topple the current British record-holders from the top spot less than two months after their win.

But if you manage to scoop the prize but can't find your golden ticket, all hope is not lost.

Brits must make a ticketless claim in writing and should include as much information as possible, including when and where they bought the lost ticket.

Anyone who believes it is them can easily make a claim – but you'll have to act quick.

Players have one month to do so, and risk losing their prize all together if they don't remember.

And any potential winner with a ticket has just 180 days to come forward – or they could lose the lot.

If no one comes forward with the actual ticket during that time, the cash could be paid out if a claimant is verified to be the rightful ticketholder following a strict security process.

Lotto expert Andy Carter previously told The Sun that ticket holders definitely do not need to worry if this happens.

He urged Brits to call the National Lottery as soon as possible to report their ticket missing.

Players have one month to do so, and risk losing their prize all together if they don't remember.

Andy said: "If people buy a ticket from a shop and they've lost it – but they've checked the numbers and think it's their prize – they can contact us and let us know.

"But what's really important is they need to contact us within 30 days of the draw."

The only people who know what shop the ticket was purchased at are within the security team.

The expert also said the best way to avoid the missing-ticket panic is to buy using the National Lottery app.

He added: "[If] you buy it online, you haven't got a ticket to lose. So if people are worried about losing their tickets, that's the great thing to do."

If someone wins tonight, they would be the biggest UK lotto winner EVER.

They would beat Joe and Jess Thwaite from Gloucester, who scooped a record-breaking £184 million EuroMillions jackpot less than two months ago.

And they would instantly become richer than singers Harry Styles, who is worth an estimated £100 million, and Adele, worth an estimated £150 million, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.
