UK Ticket Holder Wins £123M EuroMillions Jackpot

UK Ticket Holder Wins £123M EuroMillions Jackpot

The entire £123 million EuroMillions jackpot from Tuesday 11th June 2019 was won by a single ticket sold in the UK. The lucky player becomes the fourth UK jackpot winner so far this year, after matching the winning combination on the night: 25, 27, 39, 42, 46 and Lucky Stars 11 and 12.

In addition to the £123,458,008 jackpot winner, one UK player won a guaranteed £1 million in the Millionaire Maker draw after matching the winning code VFMF 87851. View full draw details and results for 11th June 2019 draw.

The enormous jackpot was created by a Superdraw last Friday night, when the top prize was bumped up to €130 million (£115 million). Nobody won the Superdraw, so the jackpot rolled over to Tuesday.

It was one of the largest jackpots to have been seen on the game in recent years, and the biggest since an Irish family syndicate claimed €175 million in February. It was quickly announced that the only ticket to match all the numbers had been sold in the UK, with National Lottery officials leading the congratulations.

Andy Carter, senior winners' advisor at The National Lottery, said, "This year has been truly incredible for UK EuroMillions players - with four jackpot winners so far on these shores. Patrick and Frances Connolly from Northern Ireland won the £114.9 million EuroMillions jackpot in the draw on New Year's Day, Ade Goodchild banked £71 million in March and an anonymous ticket-holder bagged £35.2 million in April.”

All EuroMillions players should check their tickets carefully, as an incredible 2,056,750 prizes were won across the continent. The UK jackpot winner has 180 days from the date of the draw to come forward.

Third-Biggest UK Jackpot Winner

The latest winner has instantly become the UK's third-biggest EuroMillions jackpot winner, but no details will be revealed about them unless they opt for publicity when claiming their prize from the National Lottery. The location of where the ticket was bought will only be disclosed if the prize remains unclaimed in a couple of weeks.

While the majority of prizes are claimed anonymously, the biggest UK winners have been happy to go public with their stories. Chris and Colin Weir still hold the national record thanks to their £161 million windfall back in July 2011, while Adrian and Gillian Bayford landed £148 million in August 2012. Take a look at the biggest EuroMillions jackpot winners since the game started.

There have now been 78 jackpots won in the UK, placing the country third on the list of the most successful countries behind France (90) and Spain (89). However, the UK has had more winners than anywhere else in 2019, and the wait now begins for the latest lucky ticket holder to come forward.
