THE final countdown has begun in the hunt for a £250,000 lottery ticket bought in Huddersfield.
A mystery punter won the big prize in the Thunderball draw on August 30 last year.
But so far no-one has come forward to claim the prize.
And with the deadline set for 11pm tomorrow night, it now seems certain the money will be given to charity.
The ticket's winning numbers are 18, 21, 24, 25, 26 and the Thunderball number 3.
Camelot spokeswoman Jacquie Wilson said: "I would ask everyone to take a good look around the house.
"If nobody comes forward, the money will go to good causes, like all our unclaimed prizes do."
The £250,000 win is not the only one pending.
Someone in Scotland has still to claim £1m won on December 24.
Over the years, prizes worth more than £600m have been given to good causes because ticket- holders have not come forward.
