Euromillions player could lose £3.6m if they don't claim Set For Life prize to win £10,000 a month in four days

A EUROMILLIONS player could lose an eye-watering £3.6million if they don't claim a huge Set For Life prize within the next four days.

The big jackpot would see the lucky winner pocket £10,000 every month for 30 years – but their window to claim the life-changing sum is closing quickly.

National Lottery prizes are open for a valid claim to be made within 180 days from the draw date.

Set For Life draw 224 was played on May 6, meaning it will expire on November 2 forcing the prize and any interest earned on it to benefit National Lottery Projects across the UK.

The winning ticket was purchased in Greenwich, London.

For the ticket to be successful, it must match the five correct numbers plus the 'life ball'.

The draw joins a stack of other bounties which remain unclaimed, including six Euromillions prize pools and two other Set For Life games with staggering sums.

Earlier this month, Britain's biggest ever EuroMillions jackpot was up for grabs, with a fortunate ticket holder set to scoop £184million.

It overtook another standout jackpot of £170million, which was bagged by an anonymous winner in October 2019.

But that came after a string of huge wins in the UK – with some splashing out on giant mansions, flashy new belongings and a luxurious lifestyle.

While a few have used their winnings for good, others have suffered heartbreak along the way, falling victim to the so-called lottery curse – with marriage scandals, financial feuds, violent robberies, botched cosmetic surgery and tragedy.

Britain's youngest lottery winner, Jane Park, received £1million from EuroMillions, but despite winning the least on our list, she made the biggest splurge.

But despite the windfall of material items, she grew to struggle with the win.

"I wish I had no money most days. I say to myself, 'My life would be so much easier if I hadn’t won'," she told Sunday people.

Other winners include Colin and Chris Weir won £161million on the EuroMillions in 2011,  Adrian and Gillian Bayford from Suffolk who took out a £148million prize and the Davies family who won £61million on the EuroMillions in 2016.
