People have been speculating for weeks whether a £10 million jackpot offered and won during the inaugural draw of the revamped National Lottery will ever be claimed. Now someone who bought the winning ticket in Bradford has come forward to claim the hefty prize.
The winning combination of 5, 15, 17, 19, 20 and 47 – was drawn in the October 5th draw, and the lack of claimants had the National Lottery so worried that on Friday they started an appeal to find the winner. Now that the winner has come forward, lottery officials are relieved. It would not have been nice for such a large inaugural jackpot to go unclaimed.
The identity of the winner or winners have not been revealed, it is not known whether the claimant or claimants will opt to remain anonymous.
