Giant £18Million Lotto jackpot claimed
The lucky ticket-holder who banked the entire Lotto jackpot on Saturday 18th November 2017 has now come forward to claim the prize. The ticket-holder is now worth an amazing £18,188,218.
The prize will be paid out at the ticket validation appointment. The ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news. There will be no information on whether it is an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.
As well as the huge jackpot winner the draw also saw the game make another guaranteed UK £1Million winner in the Lotto Millionaire Raffle. There were also plenty of other winners in the draw with 89,183 tickets matching three main numbers and banking £25.
The man who leads the team that pay out all of The National Lottery’s big winners, Andy Carter, said, “It’s been an amazing year for Lotto players with numerous giant jackpots won. We look forward to helping this ticket-holder settle into their new millionaire lifestyle. I’ll ensure we have a glass of ice cold champagne ready to toast their life-changing win.”
