For weeks now the EuroMillions lottery has been searching for a Millionaire Raffle winner in the Basingstoke area, but the winner has now come forward to claim this lucky prize.
The EuroMillions draw on Friday, February 7th may not have found a UK jackpot winner, but it did find a UK Millionaire Raffle winner, as one lucky lottery player found themselves the rightful recipient of £1 million that weekend. However, the winner took a long time to make themselves known, and lottery officials in the UK were desperate to find the player who had bought the winning ticket in the Basingstoke area.
Anyway, the owner of the winning ticket has now come forward to lottery officials and started the proceedings to claim their million pound prize fund. While we don’t yet know the identity of this mystery lottery winner, we hope that they will agree to go public with their win and tell us what they plan to do with their winnings, as well as the reason why it took them so long to claim the prize.
UK lottery officials feel relieved to have found the winner of this lucrative prize, saying that they are delighted that the winner is now able to enjoy the amazing winnings from the European lottery. A lottery spokesman said “it would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-changing amount of money,” continuing to say that lottery players should always be in a habit of checking their tickets, and not to forget to check the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle number, even if they haven’t managed to match any of the drawn numbers.
Despite there being millions of EuroMillions players across Europe, you may be surprised to learn that millions of pounds worth of lottery winnings goes unclaimed in the UK and across the continent every year. Unclaimed prizes in the UK are donated to the National Lottery Good Causes Fund after the deadline to claim has passed, the proceeds of which go towards worthy charities and other causes. This often includes UK heritage projects as well as needy individuals and charitable projects such as athletics and research.
The EuroMillions lottery jackpot is now worth £107 million for the draw on Friday, March 14th 2014. The jackpot hasn’t been won since the EuroMillions special Super Draw took place a week ago, meaning that the £80 million special jackpot has rolled over to create this exciting lottery top prize this weekend.
