£113 million prize not yet claimed by UK winner

Tags: jackpot, lottery, record, uk.
Posted on 12 October 2010 by "T".

Last Friday someone hit the jackpot and won £113 millions in one of UK's biggest lotteries. The prize is the biggest single lottery success in UK history and if the ticket is hold by one person, he/she will become the 589th wealthiest person in Britain. However, there's a "small problem" - no one has claimed the win yet! If no one has come forward in 2 weeks time, the company behind the lottery game will reveal where the lottery ticket was bought. 

About 2,400 lottery millionaires have been created in the UK since 1994. Two of these winners are Nigel Page and Justine Laycock, from Barnsley, who won £56 millions in February this year. This is what they told BBC News about their big win.

"For us, so much has happened in the last seven months but we now feel very settled. We live in a beautiful home, have had some amazing holidays and have been able to thank our family and friends for their support."

They also gave the unknown £113 million winner(s) some advice.

"It is an amazing amount of money and we wish them all the very best with their prize. We would advise them to take their time and the advice on offer and stay grounded."

This has already been in the news a fair bit, which makes me think, why hasn't this person checked their ticket yet. Maybe it's lost. Can you imagine if that was you? I'd be suicidal lol.

Otherwise the winning ticket is just sitting somewhere and the buyer hasn't got round to checking yet. I'd be checking my ticket twice. And again to make sure. If no one comes forward soon I might start thinking it is me. And I don't even play the lottery. And never will.

What if the winner is so satisfied with his present life he doesnt want to change it at all ... Blink looking at the ticket everyday and laughing about it all.

At first I thought it was a Poker tournament prize. Shock
Then I quickly thought, NO.... Big Smile

Yep, it`s gotta be the euromillions Lottery, the only one with this kind of prize money. Crazy stuff really.
An old retired Belgian couple won it once. they only bought 1 ticket once. Worship

If they have problems getting rid of the money, i would take a million or two. Big Smile

could you imagine the begging letters you would receive when it got out that you had won it ??.

Anyway, what could you do with 113 that you couldn't do with 10, stupid amount of money, i reckon they should cap the win to say 50 mil or something.

It would be interesting to know how much time has to pass before winning prescribes ....

omg very nice prize for a lottery ticket, just wonder how many ppl participated in this.
the winner has claimed money and decided to remain anonymous for time being, very wise thing to do imo.

Well, there you go... I was quite sure the winner was rotting away in som lonely apartment with an open can of catfood in his/her hand and the TV on, after having been hit by a massive heartattack.

But, whoever it was, congrats and good luck! Feel like learning to play poker?
