ONE lucky lottery winner has scooped more than £121,000 on EuroMillions that has been sitting unclaimed for months.
The National Lottery have announced that the owner of a previously unclaimed winning ticket, which was bought in Aberdeenshire back in July, has now come forward to claim their winnings.
This means that this lucky lottery winner is now £121,729.20 richer. The ticket was for the draw July 17 but as they have opted not to take full publicity, their identity will remain a mystery.
A quote released from the National Lottery states: “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-enhancing amount of money. We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”
Imagine if this missing ticket was found among scrap paper while going through the pocket of a pair of jeans that you were about to be thrown out? Luckily this lottery winner was smart enough to check before disposing of the ticket.
