BRITS have been urged to check their lottery tickets as eight winners are yet to claim their £1million prize.
If you entered Friday's EuroMillions draw, you should look at your numbers now as some people have unwittingly become millionaires overnight.
In total, 24 UK players won a prize of £1million, but only 17 have come forward over the weekend.
That means there's still £8million left to be claimed.
Friday's winning EuroMillions draw numbers were: 5, 14, 35, 36 and 39, while the Lucky Stars were 07 and 12.
Check your tickets online at national-lottery.co.uk or download the National Lottery app.
Players who bought their entry in a shop will have to check their physical ticket.
If you think you're a winner you can call 03332345050 or email [email protected]
