This was the first UK EuroMillions jackpot win of 2023, Camelot said. Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, added: “This is absolutely incredible news and we’re delighted that we’ve received a claim.

“Our focus is now on supporting the ticket-holder through the process and helping them start to enjoy their truly life-changing win.” Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the winner will then decide whether or not to go public.

Last year, there were six EuroMillions jackpot winners in the UK, with prizes totalling more than £820 million. The biggest EuroMillions win of 2022 was £195 million from the draw on July 19 and was claimed just a day later. The winner chose to remain anonymous.
