North East Lincolnshire officially has a new lottery winner!
A person has come forward to claim a huge prize on the National Lottery's ‘Set For Life’ game after an appeal was made to find the mystery winner.
The lucky ticket-holder, who bought the ticket in North East Lincolnshire and matched the five main numbers in the draw, has scooped an amazing £10,000 (₦5.7 million) a month for one year.
An appeal was raised for the winner to come forward after it had transpired that they had yet to claim their winnings.
Camelot UK Lotteries Limited, operator of The National Lottery, has today confirmed that it has received a claim for the prize from the draw on August 26, 2021.
The winning 'Set For Life' numbers on that date were 17, 19, 25, 30, 40 and the Life Ball was 5.
The lucky ticket-holder previously had until February 22, next year to claim their prize.
After reading the appeal, the lucky winner came forward.
Once the ticket has been proved, the holder will then be paid that feel-good money.
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: “What amazing news for this lucky ticket-holder who has claimed their prize. We will now focus on supporting the ticket-holder through the process.
