Over the weekend, the Lotto roll-over reached a life-changing £66 Million pounds for a lucky winner to snap up and enjoy. However the lucky numbers that matched those that were chosen on the night showed up to match 2 different tickets, meaning the huge £66 Million was to be shared between the two lucky winners… and this is where we meet the unnamed lady from Worcester who claims she is one of those lucky winners that is now owed a huge £33 million. Now this isn’t one of those crazy claims that aren’t very realistic and just a desperate attempt for a taste of that wealth, but there is actually a lot of evidence to point towards the fact that this could be a real story and not a ‘the dog ate my ticket’ attempt to be a winner.
The lady from Worcester said she had tried desperately to dry the ticket after putting it in the wash in her jeans back pocket, however after the short spin the barcode and date had washed off only leaving the correct numbers and ‘2016’. She spoke out saying, “I’ve been a nervous wreck. I haven’t slept all night. Since I found it in my jeans pocket, my daughter and I have been drying it out with a hairdryer. You can see the 2016 but not the date.”. In order for this woman to be able to claim the giant jack pot she has to be able to prove the date she purchased the ticket, the location and the estimated time, as this information can be sourced by the National Lottery, Camelot themselves. Once more, she has been requested to send the washed remains from the ticket to them in order to be analysed and investigated further.
The owner of the rumoured shop that the ticket was bought from was Natu Patel who runs the Ambleside News. He was happy to speak to the press saying, ‘Camelot called me to say that the press might contact me. It was completely out the blue and it sounded quite mysterious. Unfortunately, I have no way of checking if the winning ticket was bought here unless I scan it. We have sold many winning tickets before, but only for £25,000 or £20,000. It would be wonderful if it was bought here. I would be very, very happy. It would be great for the community. The winners are very lucky.”.
Now it is a case of the waiting game to see if this woman’s life has really changed for the better and she can join the likes of A-list celebrities with matching bank accounts! The other winner to the £66 million is already enjoying their share of the jackpot.
