Euromillions jackpot of £122m won by single UK ticket-holder
A UK ticket-holder has scooped Friday’s jackpot prize of £122 million in the Euromillions draw, making them the fifth biggest ever National Lottery winner.
The lucky player matched all five Euromillions numbers as well as the two Lucky Star numbers.
Players are being urged to check their tickets in order to claim the prize of £122,550,350.80.
The winning EuroMillions numbers were 04, 21, 34, 40, 47, and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 05.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: “What brilliant news, one UK winner has scooped tonight’s massive £122 million EuroMillions jackpot.
“They are now the fifth biggest ever National Lottery winner.”
It is the second UK EuroMillions jackpot winner this year, after another lucky ticket-holder won the £39 million jackpot in the draw on New Year’s Day.
The lucky winner, whoever they are, may wish to celebrate with wine and flowers and could now afford a bottle of Krug Collection 1988 champagne, at £890 a bottle, and a Cullinan bouquet for an eye-watering £20,000.
And while holiday bookings are still uncertain for Britons this summer, they could treat their partner to a private island, such as Cave Cay in the Bahamas – costing 60 million dollars (£43 million) – which they could afford to buy, twice.
