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.
This, of course, leaves us with a brand new jackpot of €15 million on Friday 31st May 2013 which is complimented by the special UK Millionaire Raffle game which will see one lucky winner win £1 million every month for a year!

Updated: The £81 million winner has come forward and their prize is in the process of being paid out. They are yet to decide whether to go public or remain anonymous.
