A UK ticket-holder has scooped the Euromillions jackpot prize of more than £57m according to The National Lottery operators.
Camelot UK Lotteries Limited has today confirmed that it has received a claim for the prize from a single ticket from the draw on Tuesday 17 March.
The lucky ticket-holder scooped an incredible £57,869,670 prize fund.
The claim will now go through the process of validation, which includes checks to ensure the Games Rules Terms and Conditions are adhered to and the integrity of The National Lottery is protected.
Subject to validation, the prize will then be paid at an appointment with one of Camelot’s Winners’ Advisers.
Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news.
There will be no information on whether it is an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased, unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, “It is fantastic news that a lucky ticket-holder has now claimed this enormous prize. We will now focus on supporting the ticket-holder through the process.
“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.”
An average of £30m is raised every week for projects across the country and up to £300M of lottery generated funds will be used to support the most vulnerable in communities across the UK during the coronavirus crisis.
