Bristolian won £1 million Lotto jackpot - but has not claimed it
BRISTOLIANS are being urged to check old lottery tickets after someone from the city won a jackpot prize of more than £1 million - but has so far not claimed it.
The search is on to find the owner of the winning ticket, bought in the city of Bristol, which matched all six numbers in the Lotto draw on Wednesday, December 12.
The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 9, 15, 18, 33, 38, 44 and the bonus ball was 16.
The lucky ticket-holder has until Monday, June 10 to claim their £1,050,547 prize.

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 The National Lottery Good Causes.
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, and would be a great way to start the New Year.
"We're urging everyone to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.
"Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa – someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune.
"We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win."
To jog Lotto players' memories, Troublemaker by Olly Murs ft. Flo Rida topped the UK singles chart at the time, while the same artist was also at the top of the album charts with the offering Right Place Right Time.
Football fans will remember that both Bristol City and Bristol Rovers were in action on the weekend following the Lotto draw.
Unfortunately both the Robins and the Pirates suffered defeats on December 15, with City losing 2-0 at home to Derby County in the Championship and Rovers enduring a 4-1 beating away at York City in npower League Two.
Anyone 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 0845 910 0000.
