Brit claims £123million EuroMillions jackpot to become third biggest winner ever

A UK ticket-holder has successfully claimed a £123million EuroMillions jackpot – the third biggest win ever.

The new multi-millionaire has chosen to remain anonymous, Camelot said.

It comes after the Brit came forward to claim the staggering prize money last week on the June 11 draw on a single ticket.

The owner of the winning ticket matched all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars – with the winning numbers 25, 27, 39, 42 and 46, with Lucky Stars 11 and 12.

Lotto organisers had put out a frantic appeal to the lucky punter to come forward amid fears they didn’t realise they had won.

They urged players to “check, double-check and triple-check” their tickets.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “What an amazing win – the third biggest ever in the UK. We look forward to supporting this ticket-holder as they start to enjoy their life-changing prize.

“By buying a ticket for EuroMillions or any other National Lottery game, every player is helping to raise money for good causes. Around £30million is raised every week for projects across the UK, both big and small, including funding everything from local community projects to helping the nation’s athletes compete on the world stage.”
