The missing owner of a €12.8 million winning lottery ticket has come forward after a publicity campaign to track them down.

The lottery took place in March but the winner, who bought the ticket in a Primera shop in Bleiswijk, failed to make a claim.

Lottery organizer Staatsloterij says the publicity prompted the winner to look at their ticket again – and claim the multi-million euro prize. The winner has opted to remain anonymous.
