THE £1million top prize from the EuroMillions HotPicks draw – which had previously remained outstanding from a ticket bought in West Lancashire – has now been claimed. The lucky ticket-holder matched their five numbers in the EuroMillions HotPicks draw with the five main numbers from the EuroMillions draw on March 13 to win their prize.
Camelot UK Lotteries Limited, operator of The National Lottery revealed that unless the winner of a major National Lottery prize opts to take full publicity and signs an agreement to that effect, no further information can be released about their win.
Camelot’s Andy Carter 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 life-changing amount of money.
“During the current crisis, we’d like to encourage as many players as possible to check their tickets and play online or on the National Lottery app, and to only buy their tickets in retail or claim a retail prize if they are already in-store to do an essential shop.”
Thanks to National Lottery players, up to £300million will be used to support the most vulnerable in communities across the UK during the Coronavirus crisis. By playing The National Lottery, an average of £30M is raised every week by National Lottery players for projects big and small across the country. Hundreds of millions of pounds will be distributed to charities and local voluntary organisations over the next few months to help support people through the crisis - from helping support food banks to causes that combat loneliness and isolation, support for the elderly
