EuroMillions Winner from Norwich Steps Forward to Claim £1 Million
22nd September 2015 8:48 AM
A EuroMillions player from Norwich has come forward to pick up a previously unclaimed prize of £1 million. The ticket was bought for the draw on Friday 28th August and won one of the ten Mega Friday Millionaire Maker prizes, but there were concerns that the lucky participant would miss out on their reward.
An appeal was put out last week to try and jog the ticket holder’s memory, and they have now contacted lottery officials and made a claim. As well as claiming £1 million, the winner will be able to enjoy a luxury holiday to the private island resort of Song Saa off the coast of Cambodia. A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re delighted that the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward and we hope that they will enjoy their win. It would have been awful if the ticket holder had missed out on this substantial and life-changing amount of money.”
Lottery officials remind all players to check their tickets every time they play as the expiry date for a number of big prizes approaches. Winning tickets are valid for 180 days in the UK and you can find a list of unclaimed prizes to see if anyone from your area is due a fantastic reward. Use the Results Checker to find out if you are owed a prize from the last six months.
There will be a jackpot of £27 million (€37 million) on offer for anyone who can match all five main numbers plus two Lucky Stars in tonight’s EuroMillions draw, following a third rollover in a row last Friday. The last time the top prize was won was Tuesday 8th September, when a ticket holder from the UK scooped £22.4 million.
Make sure to pick up a ticket for this evening’s draw by playing online or visiting an authorised retailer in any of the countries taking part, and then check back on Euro-Millions.com for the results. Best of luck!
