A PREVIOUSLY unclaimed lottery ticket has now been cashed in making one lucky winner in Harrow an instant millionaire.
The £1,000,000 EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle prize has remained unclaimed since the draw back on July 27 - a special draw that created a world record 100 millionaires in one night as a thank you to National Lottery players for helping fund the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The winner from Harrow is the 97th ticket holder to have come forward to claim their prize, beating the previous record of 25 millionaires created in one draw.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re delighted that the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward and can begin to enjoy their win.
“As well as becoming an overnight millionaire, the ticket-holder is also part of a world record that The National Lottery is very proud to have broken.
“However, there are still three prizes from the draw waiting to be claimed so we would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets so they don’t miss out on a life-changing prize.”
