Greater Manchester ticketholder claims £1m Lotto prize

One extremely lucky ticketholder has claimed the £1million National Lottery prize that was up for grabs in Tameside.

The winner was able to match five main numbers and the Bonus Ball for the Lotto draw on Saturday, March 11. Camelot has confirmed that a claim for the prize money passed the validation check and has now been paid.

It is up to the ticket holder whether or not they want to go public and share their story. Otherwise, we may never find out who the individual was that won a life-changing amount of money.
