A £60,145.90 prize from the EuroMillions draw – which had previously remained outstanding in Belfast – has now been claimed just in time for Christmas.
The money had remained unclaimed since on 17 November, 2015
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.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re delighted that the winner of this amazing 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.”
