Mystery UK winner of £123million EuroMillions jackpot still hasn’t come forward to collect winnings – The Sun



THE mystery UK winner of a £123 million EuroMillions jackpot has yet to come forward to claim their winnings.

But Camelot is urging players to check their numbers amid fears the lucky ticket-holder might not realise they’ve scooped the prize.
It is not yet know whether the winner is an individual or a syndicate.
Camelot urged players to “check, double-check and triple-check” their tickets.
The company could only reveal at this stage that the ticket was bought at a National Lottery retailer, rather than online.
However, the area where the ticket was bought will be revealed in around a week’s time if no valid claim has been lodged by then.
LUCKY WINNER?
The owner of the winning ticket matched all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars in the June 11 draw.
The winning numbers on that date were 25, 27, 39, 42 and 46, with Lucky Stars 11 and 12.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, said: “It seems this massive winner might not even be aware that they are one of the biggest National Lottery winners ever.
“A week has slipped by and winners may have been going about their everyday routine completely unaware of this amazing change of fortune.
“The ticket was bought in-store so players should check the places they usually keep their tickets and make sure they’ve checked them all. We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win soon.”
Patrick and Frances Connolly, from Northern Ireland, won £114.9 million in the EuroMillions New Year’s Day draw, Ade Goodchild, from Hereford, banked £71 million in March, and an anonymous ticket-holder scooped £35.2 million in April.

In March, a Euromillions winner lost £1million after they missed the deadline to claim the jackpot.
The ticket-holder from the Cheshire area had 180 days to claim the prize but the deadline passed and nobody came forward to receive the windfall.
The punter had won the UK millionaire maker prize in a draw back on September 25.
