The World’s five biggest lottery wins

  1. £1.308 billion (Powerball) on January 13 2016 in the US, for which three winning tickets were sold, remains history’s biggest lottery prize
  2. £1.267 billion (Mega Million) a winner from South Carolina took their time to come forward to claim their prize in March 2019 not long before the April deadline
  3. £633.76 million (Powerball draw) from a winner from Wisconsin
  4. £625.76 million (Powerball)  Mavis L. Wanczyk of Chicopee, Massachusetts claimed the jackpot in August 2017
  5. £575.53 million (Powerball)  A lucky pair of winners scooped the jackpot in Iowa and New York in October 2018

Andy Carter, the National Lottery’s senior winners’ adviser, said the jackpot now stands at an estimated £169 million – up from an estimated £167 million on Tuesday.

He said: “Players across the country are urged to get their tickets early for Tuesday’s draw, which could make the country’s biggest ever winner.

“As the jackpot is now capped, tonight’s draw has seen four players bank bigger prizes for matching five numbers and just one lucky star. Two lucky UK players each won £3.5 million.”

Whoever wins the EuroMillions jackpot will become the UK’s biggest ever lottery winner.

The current record holders for the biggest ever lottery win are Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in North Ayrshire, Scotland, who won £161 million in 2011.

Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Suffolk, took home more than £148 million in August 2012.

National Lottery operator Camelot said there have been four UK jackpot winners in 2019, receiving £350 million between them.

In June, one anonymous ticket holder became the UK’s third biggest ever winner after scooping a £123 million jackpot.

Patrick and Frances Connolly from Northern Ireland won £114.9 million on New Year’s Day, Ade Goodchild banked £71 million in March and another anonymous player won £38 million in April.
