The UK's biggest ever lottery winners as player scoops £184m jackpot
One lucky Brit has just earned the title of the UK's biggest-ever lottery winner after bagging themselves a giant EuroMillions jackpot of £184 million.
If you're wondering where on earth you'd begin to spend such a significant wad of cash, why not take a look at how other EuroMillions chosen to spend theirs?
So far, there have been 15 players who have won a jackpot amount of more than £100 million - that's in the entire history of the National Lottery - and, while many decide to remain anonymous, some have told The Mirror how they have splurged their winnings on high-value products, given away large amounts through donations and even suffered divorce heartache.
The latest winner, who is still unknown, has won the new highest figure - a total of £184,262,899.10 with the numbers 3, 25, 27, 28 and 29 (plus the Lucky Star numbers 4 and 9) in Tuesday's draw.
To put that into perspective, the lucky winner is now worth more than footballers Harry Kane (£33 million) and Paul Pogba (£64 million) combined.
They could afford to buy four Caribbean islands and still have a few million to spare - they could even afford not one but 11 six-bedroom luxury properties in London's Hyde Park.
Now the top of the lottery rich list, they've also beaten the former richest winner (who decided to remain anonymous) who won £170,221,000 in October 2019, after matching all the numbers in a Must Be Won draw.
Next on the list are Colin and Chris Weir, who won £161,653,000 in 2011.
The couple, from Largs, North Ayrshire, became the biggest UK winners at the time.
Colin used £2.5 million of his winnings to invest in his beloved Partick Thistle football club, leading to one of the stands at the stadium to be named after him.
He later acquired a 55% shareholding in the club, which was to be passed on to the local community upon his death - Colin died in December 2019 at the age of 71.
Finally, the couple also set up the Weir Charitable Trust in 2013, donating £1 million to the Scottish Independence referendum in 2014. They divorced in the same year as Colin's death.
Adrian and Gillian Bayford won €190 million (£148,656,000) in a EuroMillions draw in August 2012.
The couple bought a Grade II-listed estate in Cambridgeshire, which boasted a cinema and billiards room, but this was sold in 2021 - some years after the pair divorced, according to reports from The Mirror.
Next come three anonymous winners, who decided that going public just wasn't for them.
The first won a Superdraw rollover jackpot in June 2019, worth £123,458,008.
The next bagged themselves a £122,550,350 prize after nine rollovers in April 2021.
And another won £121,328,187 in a Superdraw jackpot rollover in April 2018.
Frances and Patrick Connolly are next in the list, winning £114,969,775.
Frances, a former social worker and teacher, set up two charitable foundations after the win on New Year's Day 2019 and she estimated that she has already given away £60 million to charitable causes, as well as friends and family.
She called it an 'addiction', saying: "It gives you a buzz and it's addictive. I'm addicted to it now."
Another anonymous winner took home £113,019,926 in October 2010, while the final winner in this list bagged themselves £111,540,000 in the Superdraw in June last year and also decided not to go public.
