Andy Carter, Senior Winner’s advisor at Camelot, recently spoke with Metro about what actually occurs once someone wins a lottery such as the EuroMillions. For more than 13 years, Andy has been helping people that become millionaires overnight.

After congratulating themselves on their victory, the first thing winner should do is flip over the ticket and locate the phone number they are required to call.

“If you were to win the EuroMillions tomorrow night, you would check the ticket, ring the number on the back of the ticket and that would put you through to a lottery line,” Andy said.

From this point on, the procedure for claiming the prize money will begin. The winner’s advisor will be there every step of the way when a winner makes contact. They will schedule a meeting with the winner over the phone, perhaps the next day or whenever they have free time, and they will check to verify if those people are the actual winner.

In addition to ensuring that the winning ticket is valid, the team will also address any concerns the winner’s inquiries may have.

“Within half an hour I can tell if someone has won the money. Sometimes we get to people’s houses and we don’t even open the computer for an hour because we just sit there and answer people’s questions. This could sometimes last all day,” Andy said.

Lottery winners can collect their winnings the same day all the checks have been completed, and the ticket is verified. Once the payment is made, it should take at least two days for the funds to settle in the bank account.

Jackpot winnings aren’t normally taxed, but if they are considered an income or the winner begins earning money through interest, they may be. The Lottery advisor assigned to the winner will assist with any tax difficulties or inquiries the winner may have.

The jackpot amount is determined by ticket sales and is agreed upon by all participating countries. The lottery is capped at €230 million (around $231.854 million), which was implemented in 2009.
