As you already know, all participants for the online version were selected randomly from the World Wide Web through a computer draw system and extracted from over 1, 000, 000 unions, associations and corporate bodies that are listed online and each email address was attached to a ticket number. Your email address (email@example.com) attached to ticket number: [protected] with Serial number: 5388/02 was selected which automatically makes you one of our lucky winners.
Your funds have been approved for release and we will begin the process of remittance of your prize money to you immediately you select a mode of payment from the options stipulated below:
1. You can come over to the UK National Lottery Office here in the England and pick up your winnings in cash. Be informed that you will have to make yourself available within two weeks or your funds will be reused in upcoming draws.
2. We can have your prize money wired into your private bank account from our official participating bank to any account of your choice.
