11:11am Monday 22nd October 2012 in News
THE mystery holder of a winning Euro Millions ticket worth £445,440.80 has finally stepped forward.
The prize had gone unclaimed for two months since the draw on Tuesday, August 21 and had been the subject of a series of appeals in the St Helens Star.
A National Lottery spokesperson said today: “We’re delighted that the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward and we hope that they will enjoy their win.
“It would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-changing amount of money.
“We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”
It is not clear at this stage whether the winner will opt to step into the public limelight.
