THE National Lottery has revealed the winning ticket for a £57 million EuroMillions jackpot was bought in Scotland.

Players in South Ayrshire are being urged to double-check their tickets from the draw on March 17 to see if they scooped the huge prize.

If no-one comes forward to claim the cash within 30 days of the draw it will go towards Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

The winning numbers for the draw were 05, 07, 08, 16 and 20, with the Lucky Stars 02 and 12.

Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at the National Lottery, said: "We're desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with this massive prize, which could really make a huge difference to somebody's life.

"We're urging everyone who might have bought a EuroMillions ticket in this area to check their old tickets or look for any missing tickets at home.

"In the current situation, rather than taking a trip to the shop to check your tickets, we're encouraging everyone to check their numbers online via The National Lottery website or via The National Lottery App.

"While we are all trying to do the right thing by staying indoors at the moment, it's a good opportunity to dig out and check those old lottery tickets."

The ticket-holder has until Sunday September 13 to make their claim.
