South Yorkshire appears to have a new millionaire after it was confirmed the winner of a Euromillions lottery fortune had been found.
Camelot, operator of The National Lottery, announced today that the £1 million prize from the Millionaire Raffle draw on Tuesday, March 27 2012, has now been claimed, following an appeal to find the winner of what had until a few days ago been an unclaimed prize. The winning ticket was bought in Doncaster.
The winner has opted not to be named.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re delighted that the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward and we hope that they will enjoy their win – it’s certainly a great way to start 2012. It would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-changing amount of money. We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”
