UK EuroMillions winner comes forward to claim biggest-ever £184m jackpot

By Matthew Dresch

The winner of a £184million EuroMillions jackpot has stepped forward to claim their record-breaking prize.

The lucky UK ticket-holder matched all of the winning numbers in Tuesday's EuroMillions draw.

It is Britain's biggest National Lottery prize yet, making the winner instantly richer than the likes of Adele and Anthony Joshua.

The UK's last record-breaking lottery win took place in October 2019, when an anonymous ticket-holder won £170million.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, “This is absolutely incredible news! Last night saw history made with the biggest ever National Lottery prize won by a single UK ticket-holder, and we’re ecstatic that we’ve now received a claim.

"Our focus now is on supporting the ticket-holder through the process and helping them start to enjoy their truly life-changing and record-breaking win.”

This is the second EuroMillions jackpot won in the UK this year - with the £109million being scooped up in February.

In 2021, five UK ticket-holders banked an incredible EuroMillions jackpot win including one who bagged an amazing £122.5million jackpot prize in April and another who won a £111million jackpot in June.

The claim will now go through the necessary checks before the life-changing sum can be issued.

Once it has been paid out, the lucky ticket-holder can decide if they want to go public.

The win dwarfs the estimated worth of Black Sabbath rocker Ozzy Osbourne and wife Sharon (£150m), Adele (£130m) and boxer Anthony Joshua (£115m).

Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in Ayrshire, Scotland, are the UK's biggest winners to have gone public.

They took home a 2011 jackpot worth £161,653,000.

The couple worked as a TV cameraman and psychiatric nurse before becoming the biggest lottery winners in Europe.

In 2012, Adrian and Gillian Bayford hit the August jackpot bagging themselves £148,656,000.

The couple said they planned to splash out on luxury cars and holidays but sadly separated 15 months later.

Adrian had joked to Gillian that he had not bought a ticket before realising that he had won.

Frances and Patrick Connolly scooped £114,969,775 after hitting the jackpot on New Year's Day in 2019.

Anonymous ticket holders won jackpots of around £121m and £123m in April 2018 and 2021 respectively.

Further anonymous winners include prizes of around £84m and £113m in 2010, £46m in 2012, £81m in 2013, and £73m in 2014.

Later wins include £93m in 2015, £52m in 2016, £52m and £88m in 2017, £76m and £78m in 2018, £71m in 2019, £79m in 2020, and £59m and £112m in 2021.

Another winner, who became similarly stinking rich on the Euromillions, landed in hot water with her husband for obliterating her charity donations budget.

Frances Connolly, 55, from Hartlepool in Co Durham, won £115million but has already given away half on charitable causes.
