A MYSTERY punter loses a £500,000 Lottery jackpot unless they claim it by midnight tomorrow.

The successful ticket for a Thunderball draw on July 29, was bought in the Ashfield district of Notts, but not presented.

The numbers are 16, 26, 30, 31 and 39 with 9 as the Thunderball.

The prize, if not claimed, goes to the good causes fund.

A Brit player won £544,574 on the Euro­Millions draw on Friday.

The first National Lottery draw was held on November 19 1994 when seven winners shared a jackpot of £5,874,778.

The largest amount ever to be won by a single ticket holder was £42million, won in 1996.

Gareth Bull, a 49-year-old builder, won £41million in November, 2020 and ended up knocking down his bungalow to make way for a luxury manor house with a pool.

Sue Davies, 64, bought a lottery ticket to celebrate ending five months of shielding during the pandemic — and won £500,000.

Sandra Devine, 36, accidentally won £300k – she intended to buy her usual £100 National Lottery Scratchcard, but came home with a much bigger prize.

The biggest jackpot ever to be up for grabs was £66million in January last year, which was won by two lucky ticket holders.

Another winner, Karl managed to bag £11million aged just 23 in 1996.

The odds of winning the lottery are estimated to be about one in 14million – BUT you've got to be in it to win it.
