Following an intense search in the local area, and an appeal on Radio Bracknell, Camelot Group plc, operator of The National Lottery, has announced that the £101,823 prize from the Lotto draw on 14 February 2009 – which had previously remained outstanding in the Bracknell Forest area – has now been claimed.
Now that the missing ticket-holder has come forward, they need to go through the validation process before their prize is paid out. Unless the winner of a major National Lottery prize opts to take full publicity and signs an agreement to that effect, no further information can be released about their win. So, it is not known yet if the winner heard and responded to the appeals put out by Radio Bracknell.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re delighted that the winner of this 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-enhancing amount of money. We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”
