Lottery winner finally claims their prize

THE NATIONAL Lottery has announced that the Angus ticket-holder who won over half-a-million pounds has come forward to claim their prize.

Lottery operator Camelot had appealed for people to check their tickets for the draw which took place on Wednesday, October 3, after nobody came forward to claim the £514, 770 jackpot prize.

However, it has now been confirmed the money has now been claimed, although no more details will be released about the winner as they have not opted for publicity.

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.

“We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”

The winner claiming their prize comes less than a week after Camelot urged people to check their tickets.
