The winning numbers were 5, 9, 29, 31 and 41, with Lucky Stars 2 and 4. There were over 2 million prizes given away in total, ranging from £2.70 for matching two main numbers to £243,054 for matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star, but the night belonged to the ticket holder who snapped up the wonderful eight-figure jackpot.
The UK has now produced 67 jackpot winners since EuroMillions was launched in 2004. While France and Spain have been more successful (with 85 and 82 winners respectively), no country has had as many winners of the top prize in 2017 as the UK. The first UK player to land a jackpot this year shared £39.9 million with a Belgian on 14th February, before Beverley Doran won £14.5 million in the next draw.
An anonymous UK ticket holder then banked £87.5 million in the EuroMillions Superdraw on Friday 30th June, and the latest winner can now also join the club of multimillionaires as soon as they claim their prize.
They have 180 days from the date of the draw to come forward, and the National Lottery’s Senior Winners’ Advisor Andy Carter has urged players to check their tickets. Congratulating the winner, a buoyant Carter said: “The UK’s luck is on a roll!”
The next EuroMillions jackpot will be worth £15 million, and fans of the game can try to win great prizes by choosing numbers online or visiting authorised retailers in any of the nine participating countries.
