Just how devastated would you be if you bought a winning lottery ticket but then lost it, only to be found just too late to claim your lottery jackpot prize? Well the owner of a winning lottery ticket which was bought in Worcestershire for a draw back in March of this year was very nearly too late to claim their £2.5 million lottery jackpot.

The operator of the National Lottery, Camelot have confirmed this morning that a winning lottery ticket that was handed in last week has been verified as being genuine and that the £2.5 million lottery jackpot can now be awarded to the ticket’s lucky owner. The owner of the ticket only had until yesterday to make their claim for the huge cash jackpot, but they eventually came forward last week, nearly six months after the draw was made.

After a couple of months with no lottery winners coming forward and claiming this life-changing National Lottery jackpot prize Camelot revealed that the winning ticket had been bought in the Worcester or Malvern area in an attempt to jog people’s memories. A spokesman for Camelot said “We’re delighted that the winner of this prize has now come forward and we hope that they will enjoy their win. We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.

This is why so many people now play the National Lottery online. You can buy tickets for the National Lottery here at Online Lotto safe in the knowledge that you can’t lose your tickets and that you will even be emailed informing you if you have been a lucky lottery winner.
