Someone is quids in for Christmas after lottery windfall

A lucky Dacorum winner is celebrating a whopping £207,924.90 Euromillions windfall this week.

The outsize win was scooped with a ticket for the November 29 draw, but had remained unclaimed until now.

The team at lottery organisers Camelot are still in talks with the prizewinners to see whether they want to go public with their good news.

But a National Lottery spokesman told the HeraldExpress: “We’re delighted that the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward and we hope that they will enjoy their win, especially in the lead up to Christmas.

“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.”

By law Camelot has to publicise all unclaimed prizes worth more than £50,000, but there are no winning tickets for the borough of Dacorum on the list at the moment.

Lottery wins usually have to be claimed within six months or the cash goes to charity. Last year, a £64million winner from the Stevenage area failed to claim the jackpot.
