The winning code for the punter as part of the Millionaire Maker draw was VCVX 86421.

They have until April 28, 2024 to claim.

Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery Andy Carter said: "If you bought a EuroMillions ticket in North Lanarkshire for the draw on 31 October, it’s time to look everywhere.

"In the pockets of clothes you might have been wearing at the time, bags, in the car, wallets and purses and in that sideboard or drawer where we all tend to put bits and pieces - and check your tickets.

Could it be you?


"Do you live or work in this area, do you have family and friends there who you were visiting or were you just passing through?

"We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and pay out their life-changing prize - imagine the possibilities for them.

"We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.

“To try to jog EuroMillions players' memories, the draw fell on Halloween. Were you out with the kids trick or treating?

"Elsewhere, interested football fans may remember that North Lanarkshire Scottish Premiership side, Motherwell, were in league action on the day after the draw - on 1 November - unfortunately falling to a 4-2 defeat to Aberdeen at Fir Park.”

The tickets can be checked on the National Lottery App or on the website.

It's also possible to buy and check tickets in a shop that sells them.

If you took part in the draw online, your ticket will be checked automatically, and an email will be sent alerting you of your jackpot.
