THE NATIONAL Lottery is on the hunt for a Shropshire resident currently sitting on a £1,000,000 EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker ticket.

EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker guarantees to create a millionaire in every draw but the lucky winner from the draw on January 16 this year has still to check their ticket and claim their prize.

Players in Shropshire are now being urged to check and double-check their unique EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker code for the chance to become an instant millionaire.

The winning code on Tuesday, January 16 was XFKD 58687 and the lucky ticket-holder has until Sunday, July 14 to claim their prize.


Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery said: “If you bought a EuroMillions ticket in the Shropshire District for the draw on January 16, 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. 

“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.”

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

By playing any National Lottery game, players generate £30M each week for National Lottery-funded projects.

This money helps fund projects across the nation, with over 685,000 grants – supporting projects both big and small – having been made across the UK to date and over £48BN having been raised for Good Causes. 

With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket.

Anyone who has any queries or who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0333 234 5050 or email

Anyone not in possession of their ticket, for whatever reason, but who believes they have a genuine claim can still make a claim in writing to The National Lottery, but it must be within 30 days of the draw.
