More news, no ads


A resident of Breckland, which covers Swaffham and surrounding villages, has won £1 million on the EuroMillions lottery.

Camelot today confirmed that it has received the claim for the EuroMillions European Millionaire Maker prize from a ticket bought in the Breckland District for the special EuroMillions draw on January 21.

EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker guarantees to create a millionaire in every draw, but the special EuroMillions European Millionaire Maker event draw saw 100 guaranteed millionaires made across the European EuroMillions community, with 24 of these amazing prizes won by ticket-holders in the UK.

With the usual UK Millionaire Maker winner, 25 UK players instantly became millionaires overnight.

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.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at the National Lottery, said: “What amazing news for this lucky ticket-holder who has claimed their prize. We will now focus on supporting the ticket-holder through the process.

“It was an amazing night for UK EuroMillions players, with 25 UK millionaires made. We now have 22 of these prizes claimed from this draw that were won by UK players - that’s 22 ticket-holders who are brand new millionaires - and we’re urging all EuroMillions players to check their tickets so that we can pay out these last few remaining prizes."

Thanks to National Lottery players, more than £1.2 billion is being used by charities and organisations affected by the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, which includes over £600 million in funding support from the National Lottery Community Fund which is being used to help groups best placed to support people and communities through the pandemic.
