Who was the last EuroMillions winner in the UK?

The October 8 winning ticket was the fourth time the EuroMillions jackpot has gone to the UK in 2019.

In June, one lucky ticket holder, who chose to remain anonymous, became one of the UK’s biggest ever winners after scooping a £123million jackpot.

Another anonymous ticket-holder won £35.2million in April and a month before that Ade Goodchild, from Hereford, banked £71million.

Just one lucky ticket matched all the numbers to scoop the £114.9million in the New Year’s Day EuroMillions jackpot in 2019.

Frances and Patrick Connolly, from County Armagh in Northern Ireland, celebrated the (extremely) lucky dip win with a cup of tea, after first thinking it was a scam.

Their exact prize pot was £114,969,755.70 making the couple the fourth-largest lottery winners in the country.

The generous pair – a retired teacher and businessman – said one of the first things they did was sit down and write a list of 50 people they want to share the money with.

How can I check if I’ve won the EuroMillions?

You can check results for any draw in the last six months at the National Lottery’s Check My Numbers website.
