The search is on to find the lucky ticket holder, who matched all six numbers in the Lotto draw on Wednesday, 30 July.
The Lotto numbers on the night were 2, 5, 11, 22, 24 and 42.
The winner has until Monday, 26 January 2015 to claim their prize of £304,603.
A National Lottery spokesperson said that the prize could really make a huge difference to somebody's life.
"We're urging everyone who bought a Lotto ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding," the statement continued.
"Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa - someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune! We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win."
In a bid to help jog Lotto players' memories about what was happening at the time of the draw, the National Lottery have compiled a few facts:
- Cheryl Cole topped the UK singles chart at the time with Crazy Stupid Love
- Ed Sheeran was at the top of the album chart with X
- The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games were underway, with the Men's 400 Metres Final taking place at Hampden Park Stadium on the night of the draw.
Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.
