A EuroMillions ticket that was purchased in Bassetlaw has resulted in a mega prize for a lucky national lottery player hailing from Notts worth £108,000. Camelot, the lottery operator, disclosed that they had received a claim for a EuroMillions ticket that matches the five main numbers in the draw and one Lucky Star number. This was for the draw that was conducted on February 4th, Friday. Similar to all major prizes in the lottery, the claim needs to be validated with Camelot’s winners’ advisers before a payout.
Once they have validated the ticket and a payout is made, it would be up to the winner to decide if they want to go public with the news. The lottery will not provide any information on whether it is a syndicate winner or an individual one. They will even not disclose where the ticket was purchased until the ticket holder decides to share the information with the public. The senior winners’ adviser for Camelot, Andy Carter said that this was amazing news for the lucky winner who had claimed the prize.
He added that they would now be working to support the lucky winner throughout the claim process. He went on to say that everyone should check their tickets via the National Lottery App, or visit their website to do so. Tickets for the lottery can be bought and checked in retail as well. If you decide to play online through the website, or go with the app, it means that your ticket will be checked automatically and an email will be sent to notify you if you win a prize. The tickets can also be scanned on the National Lottery App to know if you have won anything.
