UK winner claims 'life-changing' £55 million EuroMillions jackpot

A winner in the UK has claimed a EuroMillions jackpot worth more than £55 million. A single ticket-holder has won the enormous sum after entering the draw on Tuesday (June 20).

It is the third UK EuroMillions jackpot win of 2023 and the second this month. On June 2, one lucky UK ticket-holder scooped the entire £111.7m jackpot, making them the 12th biggest National Lottery winner of all time.

This huge win followed on from a UK ticket-holder sharing the £138.6m jackpot from the draw on May 5 with players from France and Switzerland - the UK winner scooped a £46.2m share of the jackpot. Meanwhile earlier today (June 23) it was announced that two £6.3m Lotto jackpot prizes from June 21's draw have been claimed.

The full amount claimed from Tuesday's EuroMillions draw is £55,013,819. Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: "This is absolutely incredible news and we’re delighted that we’ve received a claim. Our focus is now on supporting the ticket-holder through the process and helping them start to enjoy their truly life-changing win."

Lottery operator Camelot said the claim will now go through the process of validation, which includes checks to ensure terms and conditions are adhered to. Subject to validation the prize will then be paid at an appointment with one of Camelot’s winners’ advisers.

"Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news," said Camelot. "There will be no information on whether they are an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased, unless the ticket-holder decides to go public."
