A British gran accidentally washes a £33 million winning lottery ticket

Susanne Hinte, 48, of Worcester, believes that she may have a winning lottery ticket which was in the pocket of a pair of jeans that she accidentally put in the washing machine. Although the ticket is somewhat crumpled, the winning numbers of 26, 27, 46, 47, 52 and 58 are visible on the ticket, but unfortunately, the barcode and the date are not. Hinte sent the damaged ticket to the headquarters of Camelot, organizer of the National Lottery, for verification after Camelot announced that the winning ticket was sold in her home city of Worcester. Owners of lost, damaged or stolen tickets must submit a claim to Camelot within 30 days of the draw. If the ticket is found to be genuine, and have the winning numbers, then the winner can wait up to 180 days before receiving the money. In Hinte’s case, this would be the 7th of July. If Hinte does indeed have the winning ticket, then she will have to share the jackpot prize of £66,070,646 with David Martin, 54, and Carol Martin, 54, from Hawick in the Scottish Borders which would make Hinte’s share a cool £33 million. The national lottery with a jackpot prize of £66,070,646 was drawn on Saturday the 9th of January 2016. The main numbers of lottery draw 2092 are 26 – 27 – 46 – 47 – 52 – 58 & the bonus ball is 48.
