In the United Kingdom, a mystery lottery player has lost out on a £64 million (US$102.5 million) fortune after the deadline to claim the prize expired and the money was handed to charity.

The unlucky individual, who bought the winning EuroMillions ticket in Hertfordshire on June 8th, had until 11pm yesterday to collect the massive windfall.

But despite a National Lottery publicity campaign, the would-be multi-millionaire missed the 180-day deadline — making the £63,837,543.60 prize the biggest unclaimed lottery win in history and the biggest ever windfall for the National Lottery Good Causes fund.

A National Lottery spokeswoman said, "Unfortunately, I can confirm that the ticket holder did not come forward within the deadline to claim their prize and has now sadly missed out on this staggering amount of money.
