Lottery players Ruth and Pete Doyle saw an additional £25 on their bank account and ignored an email from the lottery – an email which said they were big winners and should log on to their account.
Nearly two months later, the lottery called asking why they have not claimed their prize; their first reaction was disbelief. They have won a million pounds in the Millionaire Maker draw and the money had been transferred to their online account. Now they plan to use the winnings to pay off mortgage and to get their home renovated.
They have no immediate plans to give up working.
