Lucky ticket-holder claims massive £20MILLION National Lottery jackpot… but huge £7.4m prize STILL yet to be claimed


A LUCKY ticket holder has come forward to claim a massive £20MILLION National Lottery jackpot.

Lottery operators Camelot confirmed the prize was claimed by a single ticket-holder in the special ‘Must Be Won’ Lotto draw on Saturday August, 6, 2022.

The National Lottery is the state-franchised national lottery established in 1994 in the United Kingdom. It is regulated by the Gambling Commission, and is currently operated by Camelot Group, to which the licence was granted in 1994, 2001 and again in 2007, but will be operated by Allwyn Entertainment Ltd from 2024

Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said they were “delighted” someone has come forward.

He added: “Our focus is now on supporting the ticket-holder through the process and helping them start to enjoy their truly life-changing win.”

It is not clear yet where the ticket was bought.

The claim will now go through the process of validation.

A statute of 1698 provided that in England lotteries were by default illegal unless specifically authorised by statute. State lotteries were established by the Bank of England to generate money for ‘good causes’ and also to enable Britain to go to war. Early English state lotteries included the Million Lottery (1694) and the Malt Lottery (1697).

A 1934 Act, further liberalised in 1956 and 1976, legalised small lotteries.

Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news.

It comes as the search is still on for the winner of a missing £7.4M Lotto jackpot from the June 18, 2022, draw.

The missing winner bought their ticket in Wolverhampton and Camelot is urging those who bought a ticket in that area to double check their numbers.
