Lucky Lotto player claims half of £12m prize – and the other £6m is still up for grabs | The Sun

ONE lucky Lotto player has claimed half of a £12million prize – and the other £6m is still up for grabs.

The punters both nabbed part of Saturday's "must-be-won" jackpot draw.

And while one ticket holder has claimed their £6,030,699, the other winner is still yet to come forward.

National Lottery is now urging players to check their numbers to see whether they have won big.

Saturday's Lotto numbers were 05, 08, 20, 23, 30, 50 and the bonus number was 25.

If the second winner does not come forward by Friday, the method of ticket purchase – online or retail – will be released.

Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at the National Lottery, said: "We're delighted that one of these fantastic Lotto jackpots from Saturday night's £12 million 'must-be-won' draw has been claimed.

"What an absolutely amazing way to beat the January blues with a £6 million Lotto win.

"Our focus is now on supporting this jackpot-winning ticket-holder through the process and helping them start to enjoy their truly life-changing win.

"However, although the draw was only on Saturday night, there is one ticket-holder out there who perhaps doesn't yet realise that they are a multi-millionaire.
