A claim has been staked for the £171 million jackpot won by a single UK ticket-holder in Friday’s EuroMillions draw, Camelot said.
The lucky ticket holder bagged a prize of £171,815,297.80. Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: “What an amazing night for one UK ticket-holder who has scooped the giant £171 million EuroMillions jackpot. This winner has just become the third biggest National Lottery winner of all time and the sixth UK EuroMillions jackpot winner this year alone.”
The biggest-ever EuroMillions win was £195 million from the draw on 19 July and was claimed just a day later. The winner chose to remain anonymous. Alongside this record-breaking win, the £109 million jackpot from the draw on 4 February was also claimed a few days later, with the winner again remaining anonymous.
This was followed by Gloucestershire couple Joe and Jess Thwaite celebrating their £184 million win from the draw on 10 May. One lucky UK ticketholder, who also chose to remain anonymous, scooped the £54 million EuroMillions jackpot in the 10 June draw.
