"We’ve even heard a few customers saying that they meant to pop in yesterday to buy a ticket for last night’s draw.
"Our shop gets a lot of passing trade as well as local customers from nearby so hopefully the lucky winner realises they have the winning ticket soon – we wish them the very best of luck with it!"
The winning numbers last night were: 07, 19, 35, 42, 43 and the lucky stars were 07, 09
