The winning EuroMillions numbers were 1, 5, 9, 22 and 38, with 2 and 10 emerging as the two Lucky Stars. There was further EuroMillions joy for another UK ticket holder as they were one of four players to scoop an amazing £207,523 by matching all five main numbers and one Lucky Star. Players from Land’s End to John O'Groats will now no doubt be frantically checking their tickets, all the while hoping the fabulous finger of fortune is pointing squarely at them.
As the nation waits for the winner to reveal themselves, a spokeswoman for the National Lottery recognised the achievement of players in the UK and hoped that the jackpot winner would make themselves known soon: "National Lottery players in the UK are enjoying a fantastic run of luck on Euromillions. We urge all players to check their tickets, to see if they have scooped the £51.8m jackpot, so they can begin to enjoy their life-changing win as soon as possible.”
Considering the nation’s recent good fortune on EuroMillions, as well as three huge jackpot wins on UK Lotto in the last three months, all seems bright in the land of lotteries for players in Britain. As if all that wasn’t good enough, this latest win on the continent now sees the UK move level with Portugal in terms of jackpot wins, with the two countries now locked in a battle for third place with 58 EuroMillions winners apiece. However, there is still some way to go for either nation if they are to catch runaway leaders Spain (76) and France (78).
If you’d like to join previous UK winners and scoop an incredible EuroMillions prize, tickets can be purchased online or from any authorised retailer in participating countries. Good luck!
