A CLUELESS lottery winner is at risk of losing an eye-watering £1million jackpot.
The life-changing prize has been sitting untouched for weeks as an unknowing Brit is yet to check their ticket.
National Lottery officials are urgently calling for all players in the City of Milton keynes who entered the July 19, 2023 draw to log onto the lotto app.
The winning numbers on that date were 12, 30, 34, 39, 41, 47 and the Bonus Ball was 40.
An unsuspecting millionaire has until January, 15 2024 to claim their eye-watering windfall.
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery said: "This amazing prize could really make an enormous difference to somebody’s life.

"We’re urging anyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old Lotto tickets again – the easiest way to do this is via the National Lottery app – and by looking anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.
“It’s worth spending a bit of time checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa for this missing ticket."
Players can check their tickets online through the National Lottery app or on the website.
It's also possible to buy and check tickets in a shop that sells them.
