A lucky lotto player from Dacorum has claimed a one million prize on the New Year’s Day Euromillions Millionaire Raffle.
But the winner, who waited weeks before coming forward to claim their bumper windfall, has chosen to remain anonymous.
A National Lottery spokesman said: “We’re delighted that the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward and we hope that they will enjoy their win – what a great way to start 2013. It would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-changing amount of money.”
Unless the winner has a change of heart and opts for publicity the details of where they live and where the ticket was purchased will not be revealed.
The January 1 draw created 25 millionaires in one night.
