The identity of the winner is not yet known, however the owner of the jackpot-winning ticket has 180 days to come forward and claim their prize. All players are urged to check their tickets carefully.

So far this year, five players across Europe have defeated the 1/139,838,160 odds to match all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars. The jackpot winners have been from:

  • 20th April: One UK winner of £59 million
  • 2nd April: One UK winner of £122.5 million
  • 26th February: One Swiss winner of £182 million
  • 22nd January: One Spanish winner of £71.7 million
  • 1st January: One UK winner of £39.7 million

The previous UK jackpot winner from 2nd April came forward shortly after the draw to claim their prize and chose to remain anonymous.

Other Big Winners On the Night

While the lucky jackpot winner will no doubt be celebrating their windfall, plenty of other players have a lot to shout about too. In the draw, three players landed the second tier prize of £141K; two of the winners were from the UK and the third was from Portugal.

Across the participating countries, more than 1.56 million players won prizes. With 20.9 million tickets sold across the continent, this means that 75 out of every 1,000 tickets sold won a prize in the draw.

As always, one lucky UK player won a guaranteed prize of £1 million, thanks to the Millionaire Maker raffle. It has been announced that a bumper 10 UK millionaires will be created in a special draw on Friday 30th April.

In Ireland, 10 lucky players each bagged a €5,000 prize in the Ireland Only Raffle, while a further 61 players matched four numbers in the EuroMillions Plus draw to take home a prize of €2,000 each.

In other news, the minimum age limit to play all National Lottery games (including EuroMillions) in the UK is to increase to 18 as of 22nd April, which means this was the final EuroMillions draw available to those aged 16 and 17.

Superdraw Planned for June

A special €130 million Superdraw is set to take place on 4th June, in line with changes to the game made in 2020 that allow for more frequent Superdraws to be held.

The Superdraw will be the second to be offered so far this year, so players can expect another one to be held later in the year, too. For now, the jackpot has reset to its base level of €17 million (approximately £14 million) for the draw on Friday 23rd April. Good luck to all players taking part.
