One lucky player has come forward to claim their £1.4 million win more than one month after hitting the UK Lotto jackpot. The winning ticket was purchased in the District of Thanet, Kent for the draw on 2nd August, but the winner only picked up their life-changing prize this week.
Shortly after the win in August, lottery officials issued an appeal to locate the winner and unite them with their prize.The appeal was a success as the lucky individual has now come forward although no further details about the winner will be released unless they decide to go public.
This story highlights how important it is to remember to check your tickets. The best way to make sure you never miss out on a win is to buy your lottery tickets online as your tickets are stored safely in your online account, automatically checked after every draw and you will be notified by email of any win.
If you’d like the chance to follow in the footsteps of the Thanet Lotto winner and pick up a windfall, turn your attention to tonight’s UK Lotto draw as there is a brand new jackpot estimated at £2.1 million and 50 Lotto Raffle prizes worth £20,000 each up for grabs.
UK Lotto tickets are on sale now through the Buy Tickets page or from an authorised retailer. Good luck!
