UK ticket holder wins £111,000,000 EuroMillions jackpot

A UK-based ticket holder has won a huge £111,000,000 jackpot in Friday’s EuroMillions draw.

The lucky player won with the winning numbers 40, 20, 36, 46 and 07. The Lucky Stars were: 02 and 04.

They are the fourth person to win big in the UK this year.

In April, two anonymous players won jackpots of £59million and £122million respectively.

The latter’s winnings were so high they instantly took a place in he top 1,000 on the Sunday Times rich list 2020.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, has congratulated the latest winner.

He said: ‘What amazing news, one UK winner has scooped the incredible £111 million EuroMillions jackpot in tonight’s special Super Jackpot draw.

‘This is the fourth UK jackpot win this year. Players are urged to check their tickets and give us a call if they think they are tonight’s lucky jackpot winner.

‘National Lottery players make a huge difference to National Lottery Good Causes across the country raising, on average, around £30 million every week.

‘Thanks to National Lottery players, over £1 billion has been distributed to date across the UK to help tackle the impact of coronavirus.’

The highest amount ever won on EuroMillions remains at £180m, which was taken home by a Swiss player in February this year.
