LOTTERY’S LOTTERY jackpot has hit £5.4m after no one claimed the top prize tonight.
The winning lottery numbers were 51, 45, 27, 12, 23 and 54 – and the winning number was 59.
However, they don’t match any tickets purchased in the draw, meaning there’s a big prize next time.
If an Englishman wins the full amount, they may be tempted to splurge on a 100ft yacht like David Beckham’s.
The footballer showed off photos of the £5m boat he helped design.
Meanwhile, a millionaire who wins the Lottery has only a few days to claim their cash – or risk losing it all forever.
The lucky ticket holders paid for their slip in the summer.
But they have yet to step forward to claim their huge £1million prize pool.
£5.4 million ROLL-OVER
And on December 29th they will miss a good opportunity – for life changing money donated to National Lottery projects in the UK.
Even more astonishing, the ticket was purchased in a lightly populated part of Wales.
In total, Gwynedd has just over 125,000 inhabitants, including the Isle of Anglesey.
That means it’s likely only a relatively small number of locals have paid for EuroMillions tickets before the draw on July 2.
The jackpot that day was £66,920,458.
However, the Welsh ticket holders made their fortune playing in the UK lottery’s Millionaire Maker game.

It’s not the only cash that’s currently unclaimed, with two more millionaires in Liverpool and Portsmouth urged to give it out as soon as possible.
Bosses at Camelot have urged anyone who thinks they might be a winner to look under their sofas and in their pockets.
There is still hope that the Welsh inadvertent winner can go on, despite the tight deadline.
However, others have not been so lucky.
In June 2012, the unbelievable £63.8 million EuroMillions prize went unclaimed.
Any cash unclaimed after a total of 180 days from a game being played in the UK will go to National Lottery projects across the country.
Once the claim period ends, the ticket officially expires and the owner of the lottery ticket will not be able to claim any of their winnings.
Unclaimed prizes, plus any profits they may have accrued during that time, are allocated to the National Lottery. Predestined instead.
