29th May 2013 3:04 PM
After eight rollovers the Euromillions jackpot reached an incredible €95 / £81 million in time for the draw last night, resulting in players across Europe dreaming of what they would do if they won this fortune. For one UK player this dream become a reality when they scooped the entire jackpot by correctly matching all five numbers and two Lucky Stars. However, the winner’s identity is still a mystery so check your tickets to see if it was you!
This is only the second time this year that a UK player has won the jackpot, with the first win occurring back on 1st January 2013. That winner had to share their prize of €38 / £30 million with two French players, making last night’s jackpot the first exclusive UK win of 2013. The jackpot, which came out at £81,381,673.30, is the sixth biggest lottery win ever in the UK and will instantly catapult the winner to number 908 on the Sunday Times Rich List if the ticket belongs to a single person rather than a syndicate.
However, the jackpot winner wasn’t the only player to benefit from these Euromillions numbers last night. An impressive 2.4 million players across Europe won a prize from across the other twelve prize tiers. If you would like to see the Euromillions Results in full, click here.
