After days of speculation and many people thinking "Did I wash my jeans with my EuroMillions Lottery ticket in them?", the winner of the €129,000,000 EuroMillions Superdraw that took place on the 8th of October 2010 has come forward to claim their windfall.
The extremely lucky winner, who entered the UK's richlist overnight, contacted Camelot (The company that manages the UK Lottery and all Euromillions lottery sales within the UK) and stated their intention to remain anonymous. In order to validate their claim, the ticket holder was required to present proof of where they had purchased their ticket. Camelot then proceeded to transfer their winnings into their account, aprocess which took less than a day.
Camelot did disclose the location in which the ticket was purchased, causing rampant guesswork among the locals as to who in their community had won one of the biggest single jackpots the world has ever seen.
A camelot spokesperson stated the following "We have a winner adviser, who is experienced in dealing with these life-changing moments, helping them. There are immediate, basic things to sort out, such as tax and wills. But we are there to help them enjoy the winnings, whatever they want to do with it."
