|Man Refuses to Accept He Has Not Won £40.6m EuroMillions Jackpot|
A man from Bedford is causing a stir after refusing to accept that he has not won the £40.6 million jackpot from a EuroMillions draw.
Sukhdev Singh Heera claims bought his ticket from a Euro Off Licence shop on Midland Road in Bedford on 20th January, 2012 but then says he thinks he left it in the shop.
However, when he contacted Camelot, they said the winning ticket had been claimed and that even though he had not won the main jackpot prize of £40.6 million, he might have won a smaller amount.
He said “I bought it on my way back from the job centre on the Friday and must have left it in the shop. I wrote to Camelot but they said it had already been claimed and paid out.”
“I know I had at least the five main numbers and one of the lucky stars. I am sure I have won,” he added.
The jackpot prize was eventually claimed by a couple from Mansfield but this has not stopped Mr Heera from writing to his local MP to try and get to the bottom of it as he refuses to acknowledge that he has not won the main prize.
A spokesperson for Camelot said: “Unfortunately, Mr Singh Heera did not have the winning ticket. He wasn’t lucky this time but there is every chance if he keeps playing it could be his turn next time.”
