    Bournemouth retailer wins Camelot £10k quarterly prize

    Bournemouth-based National Lottery retailer, Caglar Kirici – owner of Premier Hillview Stores on Hill View Road – has won the £10k top prize in National Lottery operator Camelot’s Site, Stock, Sell online quarterly prize draw. 

    Caglar maintained high in-store standards for the sale of National Lottery products in the quarter, giving him automatic entry into the big draw – which has a £20k prize pool, with one £10k top prize and 10 £1k prizes up for grabs each quarter.

    “I felt really overwhelmed when I found out from my Camelot Sales Exec that I’d won,” said Caglar. “I wasn’t expecting it at all, especially winning the top prize which is a huge amount of money. I will use it to support my family and take them on holiday, and we’ll be able to visit lots of attractions. I can also take my colleagues for a meal to thank them for their hard work.”

    The following retailers each won the second prize of £1,000 in the draw:

    ·         Amandeep Justin of Kooner Stores in Letchworth Gardens

    ·         Ranbir Singh Lakhanpal of Seaview Road Convenience Store in Wallasey

    ·         A National Lottery retailer in Birmingham*

    ·         A National Lottery retailer in Borehamwood*

    ·         A National Lottery retailer in Glasgow*

    ·         A National Lottery retailer in Godstone*

    ·         A National Lottery retailer in Haywards Heath*

    ·         A National Lottery retailer in Leicester*

    ·         A National Lottery retailer in Swansea*

    ·         A National Lottery retailer in Warrington*

    “I was over the moon with the news that I’d won. I’ve only been trading with The National Lottery for six months so it’s a great start,” said Ranbir. “It’s also my first business, so this truly is an amazing start for me and my family.”

    Amandeep said: “I don’t usually win competitions, so to win this one was a big surprise. It’s good timing with Christmas on the way. I’ll also share some of it with my staff and give some to local charity.”
