THE operator of the National Lottery has confirmed that it has received a claimant from the Stroud district 

Camelot UK Lotteries Limited, operator of The National Lottery, yesterday (Friday, June 30) confirmed that it received a claim for the Set For Life top prize from the draw on 18 May 2023.

The lucky ticket-holder, who bought their ticket in the Stroud district and matched the five main numbers and the Life Ball in the draw, has scooped the Set For Life top prize of £10,000 a month for 30 years.

As with all major prizes, the claim will now go through the process of validation, which includes checks to ensure the Game’s rules, terms and conditions are adhered to and the integrity of The National Lottery is protected.

Subject to validation the prize will then be paid at an appointment with one of Camelot’s Winners’ Advisers.

Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news. 

There will be no information on whether it is an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased, unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, “What amazing news for this lucky ticket-holder who has claimed their prize.

"Every single month for the next 30 years - that’s an incredible 360 months - will see the lucky winner banking £10,000, imagine the possibilities. 

“We will now focus on supporting the ticket-holder through the process."
