A CLAIM has been made on an outstanding £1.1million lottery prize.
Camelot UK Lotteries Limited, operator of The National Lottery, has confirmed it has received a claim on the £1,160,724 Lotto prize from a ticket matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball and bought in Warwickshire for the Lotto ‘Must Be Won’ draw on May 15.
In a Lotto ‘Must Be Won’ draw, if the jackpot is not won, the prize amount is shared out among the other prize tiers.
The lucky Warwickshire ticket-holder, who would normally have won £1million for matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball, has had their prize boosted as no ticket-holder matched all six numbers to scoop the jackpot.
As with all major prizes, the claim will now go through the process of validation, which includes checks to ensure rules and conditions were adhered to.
Subject to validation* the prize will then be paid at an appointment with one of Camelot’s Winners’ Advisers.
Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news. There will be no information on whether it is an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased, unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said, “What amazing news for this lucky ticket-holder who has claimed their prize. We will now focus on supporting the ticket-holder through the process.”
Thanks to National Lottery players, over £1.2billion is being used by charities and organisations affected by the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, which includes over £600million in funding support from the National Lottery Community Fund which is being used to help groups best placed to support people and communities through the crisis.
