The location of where the UK's biggest ever lottery winning ticket was bought is set to be revealed in a bid to find the winner.

So far no-one has come forward to claim the record-breaking £113m Euromillions prize following the draw on 8 October.

The winner beat odds of more than 76 million to one to pick the jackpot-winning numbers.

Camelot, who will make the announcement on Friday, said it could not confirm or deny reports it was bought in Coventry.

The player matched the winning numbers in the draw, which were 9, 30, 35, 39, 46, with lucky stars 6 and 8.

According to the Sunday Times Rich List 2010, the ticket-holder could become the 589th wealthiest person in Great Britain.

The previous largest lottery winner in the UK was an anonymous player who scooped £84.4 million on the EuroMillions draw in May.

Nigel Page and Justine Laycock, from Barnsley, Gloucestershire, previously broke the record in February after winning £56m on EuroMillions.

A National Lottery spokesman said: "Our player services team are on standby waiting for the ticket-holder to call.

"They have great expertise in helping winners embrace life-changing wins and making sure that they are able to start to enjoy their new found wealth as quickly as possible."

The ticket-holder has 180 days from the draw to make a claim with a valid ticket, meaning this prize can be claimed up until 1730 BST on 6 April 2011.
