TICKET TEASE I won a £1 million lottery jackpot, but the clerk informed me that my ticket was worthless. I got even and exacted my retribution.

Ironically, the man called Lucky deliberately tricked the elderly couple into thinking they had won nothing, so he could keep the potentially life-altering ticket for himself.

According to reports, Lucky asked them if they wanted their ticket back, but they told him to throw it away because they thought it was useless.

Little did the Holts know that when Lucky scanned the ticket, a message prompted him to contact Camelot.

He later tried to get the money back by calling Camelot, but this quickly fell through when he was unable to produce any documentation related to the ticket, according to testimony given in court.

After watching CCTV footage from the Best One store, Camelot became suspicious of Lucky's actions and discovered that the ticket had not been bought there at all.

They found that the winning ticket had actually been bought from the Tesco Extra in Oldham, where Mrs Holt had used her Clubcard.

Afterwards, Camelot was able to locate the true owners by using the Clubcard information.

Lucky reportedly told the investigator who confronted him, "I am the owner of the ticket but have a bad memory," as he simply stared at the ground.
