A UK ticket-holder has successfully claimed a £123m EuroMillions jackpot – the third biggest win ever.
The new multi-millionaire has chosen to remain anonymous, Camelot said.
The owner of the winning ticket matched all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars – with the winning numbers 25, 27, 39, 42 and 46, with Lucky Stars 11 and 12.
Lotto organisers had put out a frantic appeal to the lucky punter to come forward amid fears they didn’t realise they had won.
They urged players to “check, double-check and triple-check” their tickets.
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, “This is the third biggest win ever on The National Lottery and we now look forward to helping the ticket-holder start to enjoy their new found wealth.”
Other big winners who have gone public include Colin and Chris Weir, who won £161million on the EuroMillions in 2011.
Adrian Bayford and his ex-wife Gillian also won £148million on the EuroMillions in 2012 – but split 15 months after their win.
Frances and Patrick Connolly also won £114.9million in the New Year’s Day EuroMillions jackpot in 2019.
