The winner of a £1m lottery ticket, bought in Northern Ireland, has only days left to collect their prize.

The ticket was bought in the Fermanagh & South Tyrone area on Friday, 3 August, 2012.

It matched the winning combination in the Millionaire Raffle in the EuroMillions draw.

Meanwhile, a ticket bought in County Armagh for the Euromillions draw on New Year's Day won £606,509. The owner has chosen to claim the prize anonymously.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: "We're delighted that the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward and we hope that they will enjoy their win - what a great way to start 2013."

However, the organisation said it has made a number of appeals for the £1m raffle winner to collect their prize, without success so far.

If the money is not claimed by Wednesday, 30 January, it will go to charity, via the National Lottery Good Causes.
