LOTTO players have been given an urgent warning to check their tickets as a jackpot worth £7.5million has still not been claimed.

The winner of the prize worth a cool £7,440,150 has yet to come forward and now has just five days to claim it.

And with the lucky ticket dating back to the June 18 draw, time is running out for anyone to claim the prize.

Lotto operators Camelot give winners just six-months to claim prizes before writing off the sum.

The winning numbers in the draw were 11, 14, 36, 39, 42 and 59.

And the single ticket holder matched all six balls – netting the jackpot.

Camelot said the ticket was bought in the Wolverhampton area.

They are now urging all ticket holders who may have snapped up a ticket in the region to check their numbers and come forward by December 15.

And they recommended Brits who have bought a lottery ticket in the last six months to check down the back of sofas and in nooks and crannies just in case.

In September Andy Carter, The National Lottery's senior winners' advisor said: “We’re also still searching for a missing £7.4m Lotto jackpot winner from the draw on 18 June 2022.
