A WOMAN was told she had won the National Lottery jackpot and was ready to claim her £8 million – but it all fell apart in seconds.
Vlogger Chloe Hill, 32 years old, from Yorkshire, has arrived TikTok to share an unfortunate misunderstanding with her followers.
Chloe shows a screenshot of an email she received from the National Lottery.
It said, “Good news. You’ve won the national lottery.”
The lottery results for the £8,606,092 jackpot on 11 May 2022, it’s 21, 34, 37, 39, 44, 51 and the Bonus Ball is 26.
However, when she found out how much money she had actually won, she was extremely disappointed.
After accessing her National Lottery account, it became apparent that Chloe had only won £3 on Thunderball.
Caption for her videotapes read: “Always fooled into thinking I’ve won through emails. Anyone else?”
And people were quick to express their sympathy and share their similar stories on social media.
One said: “I know that feeling all too well.”
Another commented: “That’s right. Try not to get excited when you get it but still hope and then…”
The third quipped: “It pays for your Flash costume, doesn’t it?”
One person ended up writing: “What are you going to do with your winnings? Retirement?”
It comes after a couple who thought they had won the £182million EuroMillions jackpot were devastated after they lost everything to a technical error.
Rachel Kennedy, 19, and Liam McCrohan, 21, from Hertfordshire, played the winning numbers for five consecutive weeks before they finally ended up in a draw.
But the couple was heartbroken when they realized that Rachel’s ticket payment hadn’t been made because she didn’t have enough money in her account.
