One UK Winner Makes Record Euromillions Jackpot
Last Updated: Wednesday 13th July 2011, 09:42 am
So the news is in, and the Euromillions results are now available and it was just one UK winner who becomes a record lottery winner by scooping the capped Euromillions jackpot. There was €185 million up for grabs, which exchanged to £161.6 million, and it’s a single ticket holder who has scooped the lot! It’s more than possible this single ticket holder is actually part of a syndicate, if not then this person becomes the biggest ever UK lottery winner.
The prize fund for last night’s Euromillions draw was unprecedented, with over £176 million given away in the UK alone! Other countries had big winners too, and even the second tier winners became instant millionaires!
In all, eleven Euromillions players matched five main balls and just one lucky star, and three of those were from the UK, each collecting £1.7 million! Players matching just five main balls collect over £56,000, fifteen players in total, four from the UK! Over 5 million UK players walked away with a prize, but all anyone is now interested in is just who has won that jackpot!
In all the excitement of the big Euromillions jackpot, don’t forget to check your lottery results, and the Millionaire Raffle result too, because in the frenzy that has taken place, one lucky player also wins a £1 million Millionaire Raffle prize! Make sure that win isn’t missed when you’re checking the other prize levels!
Next up in the UK is the Lotto draw this evening, and while it’s not a record jackpot, there will still be around £2.4 million for the winning player. The next Euromillions draw takes place on Friday evening and the jackpot for that will now be reset to £13 million!
