A lucky ticket-holder has claimed a £13.1 million Lotto jackpot.
Camelot confirmed it has received a claim for the ‘Must be Won’ draw on July 7.
The ticket-holder’s claim will now be checked and if everything matches up the huge prize will be theirs.
The potential winner will get the chance to go public after the validation process is complete and they have been paid.
Senior winners’ advisor Andy Carter said: “What sensational and sunny news for one lucky Lotto player. We will now look to support the ticket-holder through the process and help them to start to enjoy their life-changing win.”
It comes less than a week after reports that EuroMillions winner Adrian Bayford had sold the mansion he bought with his £148m jackpot.
Adrian and his then-wife, Gillian, bought the country pile in Cambridgeshire in 2012.
However, less than a year later Gillian left him for a car salesman.
Adrian then dated Polish sausage factory worker Marta Jarosz, 37; got engaged to stable girl Sam Burbidge, 33; and had a relationship with waitress Lisa Kemp, 41.
But the path of love was not successful for Adrian, 50, reports the Sun.

And according to friends he was keen to offload the Grade II listed home and its 189-acre estate as he blames it for much of his unhappiness.
A friend of ex-postman, Adrian, said that in the end he just wanted “rid” of the property.
They told the Sun: “He blames the house for all the bad luck he’s had in love.
“He says the move from his old, happy life brought all the bad luck he’s had.
“Since Gillian left, he’s just wanted someone to share his millions with but it’s not worked out.”
The mansion languished for three years before it was put on sale as Adrian associated the property with “bad luck”.
And aerial photos of the time Horseheath Lodge show its stable blocks looking run-down, with weeds growing in the stable yard.
Prior to the sale, the estate agent stated on their website: “Horseheath Lodge is an immaculate residential estate built between 1815 and 1825.
“The Estate is centred around the historic Grade II Listed Georgian house, which has been tastefully updated by the current owner to offer three reception rooms and six bedrooms.”
He put the home which includes a cinema, billiards room, gym and pool on the market in 2018 and got £6.5million for it.
