The unclaimed £63.8 million EuroMillions prize has been linked to a ticket bought in Hertfordshire.
Its holder has still to come forward to accept the windfall, nearly a fortnight after the draw.
There were two jackpot winners on June 8, one in Belgium and one in the UK. The owner of the British ticket - bought in the Stevenage and Hitchin area - will claim £63,837,543.60.
A Camelot spokesman said: "National Lottery players are being urged to check, double-check and triple-check their tickets for the chance to claim this staggering prize."
This is now the longest time such a large win has gone unclaimed. According to lottery rules, the ticket-holder - who could be an individual or a syndicate - has a 180-day deadline to pick up the prize, meaning they must come forward before 11pm on December 5.

How many layers of potential unreality exist? 'Exist' is not the right word, of course.
And here's a reminder again of the winners of an alleged £161m ticket from almost this time last year-
