Are you the lucky lottery winner?

A HUGE Lotto prize of �175,261 has yet to be claimed in either Stevenage or Welwyn Garden City with organisers beginning a search on Wednesday to find the lucky winner.

The ticket, bought for the draw on Saturday, November 13, matched five numbers and the bonus ball.

The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 5, 11, 29, 31, 35, 39 and the bonus ball was 45.

The ticket-holder has until 5.30pm on May 12 of next year to make their claim.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize 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.”

To jog Lotto players’ memories, Only Girl (In The World) by Rihanna topped the UK singles chart at the time, while Cheryl Cole was at the top of the album chart with Messy Little Raindrops.
