One lucky person is set to be £1million richer this Christmas after a winning lottery ticket, that was purchased in Chorley, has been claimed.

Camelot UK Lotteries Limited, operator of The National Lottery, has confirmed that it has received a claim for the £1million EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker prize for the EuroMillions draw on October 24, 2023.

EuroMillions Millionaire Maker guarantees to create a millionaire in every draw. For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a EuroMillions Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket. 

As with all major prizes, the claim will now go through the process of validation, which includes checks to ensure the games rules terms and conditions are adhered to and the integrity of The National Lottery is protected.

Subject to validation the prize will then be paid at an appointment with one of Camelot’s winners’ advisers.

Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news. There will be no information on whether it is an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased, unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said, “We are absolutely delighted that this lucky ticket-holder has come forward and claimed their prize, especially in the lead up to Christmas - just imagine the possibilities for them this festive season!

“It’s now our job to support the ticket-holder through the process - we support each and every National Lottery winner in the same way-  and we will do this as quickly as possible to ensure they can very soon begin to enjoy their life-changing win.”

With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket.

Anyone who has any queries or who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0333 234 5050 or email
