Doncaster player claims £500k lottery prize

DONCASTER, U.K. – A UK National Lottery winner from Doncaster has finally claimed their prize from a Lotto draw made on March 24th. Camelot had given the lucky ticket holder until September to claim the money.

The prize amount is just less that £556,000. The recipient of the prize is still unknown and will probably remain so as the winner asked for anonymity.

A spokesperson for the National Lottery told press in Doncaster that, “It would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-changing amount of money.” In Belfast yesterday, someone missed the deadline to claim their prize of around £600,000.

There have been some big lottery winners in Doncaster over the years with Mark Lund from Askern one of the town’s biggest winners when he bagged £5.1 million in 1999.

There could have been a much bigger win in 2005 if the holder of a winning ticket worth £9.4 million, sold in Doncaster, came forward.
