Winners have 180 days to come forward to claim their prize
The winning ticket for a £7m lottery jackpot was bought in Northern Ireland, it has been revealed.
No-one has yet claimed the windfall for which the winning ticket was bought in Belfast a month ago.
The winner matched six main numbers in the Lotto Extra draw held on 7 August 2004 to win £7,039,469.
National Lottery operator Camelot said the deadline for the ticket-holder to collect their winnings was 3 February 2005.
The winning numbers are 3, 5, 8, 18, 28 and 48.
If no-one comes forward by then the prize money, plus the interest it has generated, will all go to Good Causes – adding to the £16 bn already raised through sales of lottery tickets over the last 10 years.
In June, a Belfast woman who has been undergoing treatment for cancer became the single biggest winner of the lottery since it began 10 years ago.
Iris Jeffrey, 58, bought the ticket on 14 July but only realised she had hit the jackpot in August after hearing an appeal by lottery organisers Camelot.
She scooped the biggest single National Lottery jackpot of £20.1m.
Former Belfast bus driver Peter Lavery won more than £10m in 1996.
