A massive £1,000,000 jackpot that had been outstanding since the 8th of July has since been claimed by a lucky player from Hertsmere in Hertfordshire.
The prize was part of a bonaza draw in the Lotto Millionaire Raffle drawn on Saturday July 8th. The National Lottery operator Camelot put forward a statement shortly after the draw that although the prize had been won, the winner was yet to come forward to claim their winnings. The winner only recently came forward to claim their winnings, and has chosen to remain anonymous.
Andy Carter, the National Lottery Senior Winners' Advisor, 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."
