UK lottery player claims massive £111.7m EuroMillions jackpot after Friday's draw

A lucky UK lottery player has scooped a whopping £111.7m in the EuroMillions draw.

The unnamed person won the jackpot following Friday's draw, operators Camelot have confirmed. The win came from a single UK ticket holder, with the total amount won standing at a massive £111,709,000.

Lottery bosses said the claim was now going through the process of validation before the winner is given the option over whether to go public. Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: "It is wonderful news that a lucky ticket-holder has claimed this incredible prize.

"We will now focus on supporting the ticket-holder through the validation and help them start to enjoy their win." Friday's numbers were 03, 12, 15, 25, 43 and the other numbers are 10 and 11.

The claim is among one of the biggest EuroMillions jackpot winners ever, and the second so far this year, reports The Mirror. One anonymous ticket-holder scooped £46m in the draw last month.

Friday’s ticket-holder will occupy 12th place on The National Lottery Rich List of the biggest jackpot winners. Camelot said the news follows an incredible two years of luck for Euromillions players, with a total of six Euromillions jackpots totalling over £820m in prize money won by UK ticket-holders last year alone.

One winner also broke records to land a £195m jackpot, becoming the biggest lottery winner in UK history. The biggest winners to ever go public were Frances and Patrick Connolly. They scooped £114,969,775 after hitting the jackpot on New Year's Day in 2019.
