A ticket-holder has claimed and been paid the £28.5M EuroMillions jackpot that was won in the UK on Friday 14th August.

 

The ticket has been validated by a National Lottery Winners’ Advisor and the prize paid to the lucky ticket-holder who has opted to remain anonymous. Therefore no further details will be released.

We all get a lot out of lotteries!

    A very wise decision, there is no benefit to going public and many disadvantages. Good luck to the winners, I hope they make the most of the opportunity for long-term financial security.

            The Problem With Anonymity: Nobody Knows You're There!

            Why is that a problem?

            I would be happy to get on with a life of long-term financial security without the world knowing my business.

              You do, your Lottery corp knows, as does your bank - seems enough to me.

                US STATE LOTTERIES COULD LEARN A LOT FROM THE UK

                 

                As well as being a time of extreme excitement and happiness, suddenly winning a substantial sum of money can be an overwhelming and emotional experience for many people – but support from Camelot begins as soon as a winner makes a claim on a prize.

                 

                For UK National Lottery prizes over £50,000, our player services team is able to pay them in the comfort of their own home, or alternatively they can choose to have their prize validated at one of our prize payout centres.

                 

                For winners over £500,000, a private banking representative can visit them at home to discuss additional services on offer to winners with new-found wealth. We also arrange for a panel of independent legal and financial experts to visit winners of over £500,000 to offer impartial advice and practical guidelines.

                 

                One of the most important decisions for new winners to make is whether to opt to go public or remain anonymous. If a winner decides to talk publicly about their win, Camelot’s PR team will organise a press conference and handle all media interest on their behalf, removing the anxiety that can accompany talking about a big win.

                 

                If they have requested to remain anonymous, Camelot takes its obligations and duty of care to protect winners’ privacy very seriously. Unless a winner agrees to take full publicity and signs an agreement to that effect, no information about them can be released by Camelot into the public domain.

                  With the number of redundant posts on the subject, it's more like hoping "none of your creditors know you're there".

                    Redundant is right.  It's like lining your parrot's cage with the National Enquirer (or the New York Times, pretty much the same thing).
