A mystery Brit has won a staggering £171million lottery jackpot – one of the biggest ever.
Camelot said tonight that the UK ticket holder has won the EuroMillions prize.
The numbers were 14, 15, 22, 35 and 48 while 03 and 08 were the lucky star numbers.
The company added that three UK winners who matched five numbers and a lucky star stood in line for nearly £100,000.
Everyone can claim £93,099.60 while the overall winner gets £171,815,297.80.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Adviser at The National Lottery, said: “What an amazing night for a UK ticket holder to win the massive £171m EuroMillions jackpot.
‘This winner has just become the third biggest national lottery winner of all time and the sixth UK EuroMillions jackpot winner this year alone.

“Players are urged to check their tickets and give us a call if they think they are tonight’s lucky winner.”
While tonight’s total prize is huge, it didn’t break the record £195m jackpot won by another British ticket holder earlier this year. It was claimed a day later, but the winner chose to remain anonymous.
The identity of today’s winner was not immediately clear.
But Gloucestershire couple Joe and Jess Thwaite publicly celebrated their £184m asking price after a win on May 10.
