EuroMillions’ latest winner secured themselves a jackpot worth exactly £73,205,659 (€89,166,455) when they matched all five main numbers (4, 30, 31, 38, 42) and both Lucky Stars (2, 11) in the first EuroMillions draw of May.
The newly made millionaire has not yet come forward to claim their prize but lottery operators Camelot are not concerned; “It’s still early days” a spokesperson said yesterday, “a lot of people are away for the Bank Holiday. There can be lots of reasons why they may not have come forward.” There’s certainly no rush as UK EuroMillions winners have 180 days to claim any prizes.
When the winner does step forward to claim their prize, they’ll become the eight largest lottery winner in the UK. Fortune seems to be favouring the UK lately as just last month British mechanic Neil Trotter scooped a £107 million (€129 million) EuroMillions jackpot to become the fourth largest lottery winner in UK lottery history.
The next EuroMillions draw takes place tonight at approximately 20:30 GMT and is offering players a brand new £12 million (€15 million) jackpot. For your chance to follow in the footsteps of Friday’s winner, make sure you have your tickets ready in plenty of time.
