Camelot refuse to pay out on lost lottery ticket.


Camelot, the UK's national lottery operator, has rejected requests from the Culture Secretary, Mr Chris Smith, to pay a £3 million jackpot to a couple who claim to have lost the winning ticket.

The couple, who come from Watford in Hertfordshire, lost their chance to claim the prize because they failed to meet the 30 day deadline. They apparently did not realize they had won until 6 months after the draw.

Camelot have stated that to pay out on a request of this nature would, in fact, undermine the lottery's rules and also damage its reputation.

The unclaimed prize will go to good causes determined by Camelot.
