What Next for the EuroMillions Winner?

During the UK EuroMillions winner’s phone call over the weekend, a time will have been scheduled for a meeting with one of the UK National Lottery’s winners’ advisors. During this session, the advisor validates the winning ticket and puts the winner in contact with legal and financial experts, who can help them come to terms with their good fortune.

The player will weigh up the pros and cons of going public with the win and can even request a cash advance on the £15 million sum to kick the celebrations off in style. The remainder is transferred into the winner’s bank account, usually one opened with a private bank during the meeting, and can be available for withdrawal within hours.

The advisor and their team are on hand for as long as the winner needs them and can help them deal with the press if they decide to step in front of the cameras and pose with a giant cheque.

The UK can now boast 69 EuroMillions jackpot winners since the game started in 2004, making it the third most successful nation.
