A BRITISH lottery ticket holder has today come forward and claimed the £170million EuroMillions jackpot to become the country’s biggest ever winner.
The lucky winner matched all five main numbers – 07, 10, 15, 44, 49 – as well as the two lucky stars – 03, 12 – in Tuesday night’s draw.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: “One incredibly lucky ticket-holder has scooped the enormous £170million EuroMillions jackpot.
“They are now the UK’s biggest ever winner.
“It’s been a fantastic year for UK EuroMillions players, with an amazing five jackpot wins.
“In June, one lucky ticket-holder, who chose to remain anonymous, became one of the UK’s biggest ever winners after scooping a £123 million jackpot.
“As always, the team are on hand to support and help guide the new winner as they start their adventure with their life-changing win.”
