UK National Lottery has confirmed that the owner of a £1 million EuroMillions ticket has come forward to claim their prize. The ticket was bought in the Neath Port Talbot area on the 27th December.
A spokesperson for the National Lottery said, “We’re delighted that the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward.” The lottery player had won his £1 million with the Millionaire Raffle which is open to all EuroMillions UK lottery players.
The spokes person also confirmed that the search is still on for another winning ticket which was purchased in Cardiff on the 23rd December as part of the Millionaire Month draw which saw twenty-five players win £1 million each with the Millionaire Raffle.
The owner of the winning ticket FXV864819 has until 20th June 2012 to claim their prize before it is donated to Good Causes. The spokes person continued, “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings. This amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life as they start 2012.”
“We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.” They also suggested that lottery players “try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa,” for missing tickets.
In the meanwhile, EuroMillions lottery players have a massive £29 million jackpot to look forward to. The lottery has rolled over a second time after failing to be won last Friday.
This is the second big rollover in January and with tickets priced at just £2 for a line of numbers, it would be a shame to miss this fantastic opportunity at winning £29 million. Don’t forget to check lottery results at Euro Millions Lottery.
