Lucky ticket holder comes forward to claim the £122m EuroMillions jackpot
A lucky ticket holder has come forward to claim the £122m EuroMillions jackpot to become the UK’s fifth biggest lottery winner.
The player matched all five EuroMillions numbers as well as the two Lucky Stars to win a massive £122,550,350.80.
Camelot said the claim will now go through the process of validation. Subject to those checks, the prize will then be paid out.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, said: ‘What an Easter weekend for one lucky player.
‘They have become the fifth 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.’
The winning numbers are 04, 21, 34, 40, 47, and the Lucky Stars are 02 and 05.
It is the second UK EuroMillions jackpot winner this year, after another lucky ticket-holder won the £39 million prize 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.
