One lucky person in Sussex is sitting on a fortune.

The National Lottery is hunting for the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle winner who is in line for a |£1 million payout.

But if the ticket is not claimed in two weeks the money will be given to good causes instead.

The ticket was bought for the draw in the Wealden area on November 25 last year. It has the winning raffle selection VVT537436 and the owner needs to come forward before 11pm on May 23.

The National Lottery has designed a special EuroMillionaire shortbread biscuit, which is being sold at the Albion House Bakery in Cross-in-Hand, The Homely Maid in Hailsham and Jarvis Brook Bakery in Crowborough. The winning raffle selection will be clearly displayed on top of the biscuits and organisers are hoping it will help encourage customers to go home and double check their tickets.

The National Lottery tried a lonely hearts advert for the ticket for Valentine’s Day earlier this year but nobody came forward.

A spokesman said: “With just under two weeks left for the prize to be claimed we are doing all we can to try and jog people’s memories. We tried love during Valentine’s and now with the help of these three brilliant bakeries and their very tasty shortbreads we are going to try to tempt our winner into claiming their prize.”

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180 day deadline should call 0845 910 0000.
