One lucky Lottery player has had a "life-changing" win, claiming a whopping £11 million in a recent draw.
The prize will now go through the process of validation, which includes checks to ensure the Games Rules Terms and Conditions are adhered to.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “We’re delighted this amazing prize has been claimed. Our focus now is on supporting the ticket-holder through the process and helping them start to enjoy their life-changing win.”
Lottery players have had a great run of jackpot-winning luck recently.
This winning ticket follows a £2M jackpot from the draw on 13 October that was won by a single ticket-holder.
As well as this, seven players matched five numbers and a bonus ball and pocketed over £1M during the 6 November draw.
A previous Lottery winner, Karl Crompton, was once dubbed the most eligible bachelor in Britain and the ‘Rollover Romeo’ after taking home £11 million at the tender age of 23.
The now 48-year-old doubled his fortune, which he won in 1996, after carefully investing in property and is believed to be worth an estimated £22 million.
Karl, from Lancashire, is now said to be back on the market after divorcing his wife, who is set to get half his fortune.
Following the life changing win, Karl quickly spent £3.5 million on luxury cars and extravagant holidays.
However, he also spent his money wisely by investing in property with a substantial portfolio.
He built his own home for £1.5 million, featuring five bedrooms, in Fylde that was once valued at around £3.6 million over a decade ago and has reportedly been put up for sale earlier this year.
Karl also reportedly owns another property abroad in Vancouver, Canada.
