A UK ticket holder has won nearly £55 million from the EuroMillions jackpot.
The winner won a total of £54,957,242.50 across five main numbers and two lucky numbers.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at the National Lottery, said: “What a brilliant night for a UK ticket holder who hit the incredible £54 million EuroMillions jackpot!
“Players are urged to check their tickets and give us a call if they think they are tonight’s lucky winner.”
It comes after husband and wife team Joe and Jess Thwaite became Britain’s biggest EuroMillions winners ever after winning the tournament on June 10.
But the Gloucester couple are “down to earth” and haven’t let all the money go to their heads.
They could live the high life and we wouldn’t blame them, but this week it emerged that their first major purchase since winning was a £38,000 Volvo V60.
Players generate £30m every week for the charities and causes that the National Lottery contributes to.
So far more than £1.2 billion has been distributed across the UK to help combat the effects of coronavirus.
