UK ticket holder claims huge £111m EuroMillions jackpot
A UK ticket holder has claimed the £111m EuroMillions jackpot from Friday’s draw, the National Lottery has said.
It is the fourth UK EuroMillions jackpot winner this year – two were won in April and another on New Year’s Day.
The player correctly matched all five of the EuroMillions numbers, alongside the two Lucky Star numbers.
The winning numbers were 07, 20, 36, 40 and 46, and the winning Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 04.
The verification process will now begin and there will be no information on whether it is an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased, unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.
Camelot’s senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery Andy Carter said: “What sensational news on a sunny summer weekend for one lucky EuroMillions player.
“They have instantly become the ninth biggest winner in UK National Lottery history and have a fortune which can make their dreams come true.

“We will now look to support the ticket-holder through the process and help them to start to enjoy their life-changing win.”
In April, an anonymous EuroMillions ticket holder became the UK’s fifth biggest National Lottery winner after their £122m prize was paid out.
The highest ever UK winner claimed a jackpot of £170m in October 2019, but they also chose not to go public.
The record for the highest amount ever won on EuroMillions was set in February this year when a Swiss player took home 210 million euro, the equivalent of almost £180m.
