Hunt For Holder Of £113m Lottery Ticket
11:01am UK, Sunday October 17, 2010

Huw Borland, Sky News Online

Lottery operator Camelot is preparing to step up efforts to trace the mystery winner of a record-breaking £113m EuroMillions jackpot.

A fortune awaits the lucky winner

The player who bought the winning ticket has still not come forward - nine days after the October 8 draw.

Camelot told Sky News Online it will be announcing the city or county where the ticket was issued on Friday - amid reports it was bought over a counter, rather than online, in Coventry.

The Sunday Mirror said Camelot has narrowed the hunt down to the West Midlands city, but the lottery operator said the claims were "pure speculation".

It's perfectly normal - people go on holiday or buy on a weekly basis and may not have checked their numbers.

Camelot spokesman on the unclaimed prize
A Camelot spokesman told Sky: "No (prize) claim has been received and no details have been released.

"We never release details until two weeks after the draw."

The winning numbers were 9, 30, 35, 39, 46, with lucky stars 6 and 8.

The £113m jackpot smashes the UK's previous £84.4m record, scooped in May by an anonymous winner.

The spokesman said: "We're still waiting for the lucky ticket holder to come forward.

Reports claim the winning ticket was bought in Coventry

"It's perfectly normal - people go on holiday or buy on a weekly basis and may not have checked their numbers."

The winner has 180 days after the draw to claim the prize before it is distributed by independent bodies - like Arts Council England and UK Sport - to Good Causes.

Camelot said the looming location announcement on Friday will be carefully worded to protect the identity of the winner, who may wish to remain anonymous.

Whoever claims the prize would become the 589th richest person in the country, wealthier than Robbie Williams or Rod Stewart.

Fancy not being aware that you have won £113 million pounds!!!
