Remember, the only way to officially buy a ticket is via these official websites. But you have to be a legal resident of the country and have a national ID and bank account. You can also use 3rd party reseller websites but you have to be careful who to trust.
Sites like www.euro-millions.com or www.euromillions.com are absolutely NOT OFFICIAL WEBSITES and are making money purely by reselling lottery tickets via overpriced 3rd party websites.
Whether you decide to go public or not, the National Lottery will continue to be on hand to provide support. They do not simply make the sure the money is transferred and then forget about you, as they know that it can take time to adjust to life as a big winner. They will be available to offer advice for as long as you want it, but they will always emphasise that it is up to you to do whatever you want with your money.
As life goes on and you adapt to your new financial circumstances, there are a few tax implications for you to keep in mind. While lottery winnings in the UK are not taxed, the interest on your win will be subject to income tax. If you wish to gift some of your money to others, they may also have to pay inheritance tax if you die within seven years of sharing the money. See the Taxes page to learn more.
