A LUCKY person from Torfaen or Blaenau Gwent could be a secret millionaire.

The National Lottery is on the hunt for a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle winner who purchased a ticket for the New Year's Day draw and hasn't claimed their prize.

The special draw on the first day of the year created 25 millionaires, and one of the winning tickets was bought in either Torfaen or Blaenau Gwent.

The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket to create an instant millionaire.

The winning raffle selection on New Year's Day was HYW536466 and the lucky ticket-holder has until Sunday, June 30 to make their claim.

If no one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest the prize has generated will go to good causes.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: "We're desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings - this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody's life as they start 2013."
