14 May 2001

UNITED KINGDOM –– As reported by the (London) Mirror: "The mystery winner of the £20 million ($28.4 million) British Lottery Extra jackpot still hadn't claimed their money last night.

"…But a spokeswoman for Camelot said it was not unusual for a winner not to come forward immediately.

"…She explained, `Maybe they bought a ticket and went away for the weekend.'

"`Perhaps they don't read a Sunday newspaper and only check their numbers when they get to work on Monday - who knows?

"`There is always the possibility someone could be in a state of shock!'

"…But she added, `We have found previously that if someone knows they have won the jackpot, they come forward pretty quickly.'.."
