The winning numbers for that draw were 34, 37, 39, 41, 42, 47 and the bonus ball was 45.

If no-one comes forward with the winning tickets before the respective prize claim deadlines, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to good causes.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re desperate to find these mystery ticket-holders and unite them with their winnings – these amazing prizes could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life.

“We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.

“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa – someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune!

“We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winners come forward to claim their wins.”
