A £58 million lottery prize must be totally worth the wait for a mystery EuroMillions jackpot winner who has come forward to claim the prize just in the nick of time.
For whatever reason, the winner from Scotland who won the prize from the EuroMillions draw on March 17th contacted lottery officials just before the deadline to claim on Sunday, September 13th.
A spokesperson from Camelot said: "We can confirm that we are currently finalising the validation of a claim made on this prize and are in the process of arranging for payment to be made to the ticket-holder.
"Once the prize has been fully validated and paid, we'll issue confirmation of that - but there will be no further updates before then.
"Please note that we don't comment on the details of individual prize claims and that, unless the winner of a major National Lottery prize opts to take publicity and signs an agreement to that effect, no further information can be released about their win. "
We are sure the winner will enjoy the trappings of his £58m fortune, ... But in the six months, it took to claim the prize the winner could have amassed an extra £400,000 in interest!
