It could be you... but we really hope it isn't.

A Galway based National Lottery player has missed out on €191,561 after not claiming their prize.

The not so lucky winner, missed yesterday's 5:30pm deadline to claim their massive windfall. The winning ticket was bought in Tesco Galway Shopping Centre on Wednesday, April 27.

The 'winner' matched EuroMillions Match 5 + 1 Lucky Star. The numbers for this prize are 4, 5, 25, 28, 43 and the Lucky Stars were 6 & 11.

A Cork player, who has won €381k, has only six days to avoid the same fate. That ticket was bought in the Market Green Shopping Centre in Middleton, Co Cork.

The winner has until 5:30pm on August 4 to claim their prize.

The National Lottery has advised the Cork winner to sign the back of the ticket and contact the National Lottery Prize Claims Team on 01 836 4444.
