Last week we bought you news of the massive Euromillions rollover jackpot and on Friday night one lucky ticket hold won this massive amount of money. As of yet this new multi-millionaire has not come forward to claim their winnings and as the days continue there seems to be more and more mystery surrounding the Euromillions winner as a co-op worker from Sunderland posted a photograph of the winning ticket on their Facebook page.

On Saturday morning Peter Lowery from Sunderland, Tyne and Wear posted his winning Euromillions ticket online and update his Facebook status to “OMG!!! I’ve won the euro millions jackpot. WTF! This isn’t a joke!!! I can’t breathe!” followed by several updates about what he planned to do with the winnings but as of yet Camelot say no-one has stepped forward to claim the £113 million prize. Whether or not this is a hoax is as yet unknown but several of My Lowery’s friends have raised doubts over the validity of his claims.
