Camelot to reveal location where winning EuroMillions ticket was bought
LONDON, U.K. – Amid rumours that the winning EuroMillions ticket was purchased in the Midlands city of Coventry, the UK Lottery operator Camelot has announced that it will officially reveal the location of where the record UK lotto jackpot winning ticket was bought. Camelot also refused to confirm or deny whether the rumours are true.
The jackpot winner, when they come forward, will receive a total prize of £113 million. This is the record amount ever won in Great Britain since any form of lottery was started in the country. The winner, if they are only a single person rather than a syndicate, will immediately become one of the richest people in the U.K.
Recently, a hoax claim for the money came from Sunderland and this may be why Camelot are considering to narrow down the search for the winner to a smaller region of the country.
A spokesperson for the National Lottery told the press that, “Our player services team are on standby waiting for the ticket-holder to call.They have great expertise in helping winners embrace life-changing wins and making sure that they are able to start to enjoy their new found wealth as quickly as possible.They will be on hand every step of the way to guide players through the winning experience.”
The jackpot winner will get £30 million more than the next biggest British winner of a lottery jackpot and will only be a few thousand pounds poorer than the biggest winner of the EuroMillions, which was won by a Spanish player.
The winning numbers draw on October 8th were 9, 30, 35, 39 and 46 with Lucky Star numbers 6 and 8.
