UK Punter Wins £51.8m EuroMillions Jackpot

- April 13, 2016

One UK ticket holder has won the £51.8m EuroMillions jackpot in the latest draw, Camelot has said. The jackpot is the third to be won by a UK winner this year.

The winning EuroMillions numbers are 09, 01, 05, 22 and 38 and the winning Lucky Star numbers are 10 and 02.

A National Lottery spokeswoman said: “National Lottery players in the UK are enjoying a fantastic run of luck on EuroMillions.

“This is the third jackpot to be won here in the UK this year.

“We urge all players to check their tickets, to see if they have scooped the £51.8m jackpot, so they can begin to enjoy their life-changing win as soon as possible.”

Four ticket holders matched five numbers and one lucky star in the draw, winning £207,523.40 each, while 12 people matched five numbers to win £23,058.10.

In early February, a £24.8m EuroMillions jackpot was claimed by a UK winner.

And later that month, a British player was the single winner of a £24.6m EuroMillions jackpot.

EuroMillions was launched in 2004. The biggest prize in UK history was £161m, won by Scottish couple Chris and Colin Weir in 2011.

On Tuesday, Camelot announced it had paid out £35.1m for the biggest prize ever won by a single ticket holder on the UK Lotto game.
