After weeks of rollovers and millions of frenzied lotto ticket purchases being made, the National Lottery HQ delivered the exciting news today that one extremely fortunate winning EuroMillions lottery ticket holder has become the massive jackpot winner of Â£161,653,000 (185 million euros).
“This is amazing news.
“We are absolutely delighted that a UK ticket holder has scooped the entire 185 million euros jackpot, which at the current exchange rate is a massive Â£161 million.
“This is the biggest winner this country and Europe has ever seen and follows hot on the heels of the anonymous ticket-holder who last October scooped Â£113 million.
“We’ve got the champagne on ice and look forward to welcoming the ticket-holder or holders into the National Lottery Millionaires’ Club”, said the national Lottery spokesman.
For the UK’s biggest ever winner,they will be waking up this morning as the 418th richest person in the country putting them in the same league as A-list celebrity stars and new parents to baby girl Harper seven David Beckham and Victoria Beckham who between them have an amassed fortune of Â£165 million.
Or if the winner’s not sure what to do with the mind-blowing Â£161,653,000 then they could just pop it into a bank account and let it earn them thousands in interest each day.
Not only did a UK winner scoop the huge top prize from last nights EuroMillions draw but joining him/her or a syndicate, are two-other UK winners who both matched five numbers and one lucky star to win Â£1.7 million each.
The winning EuroMillions numbers from last nights lottery draw were:
17. 19. 38. 42. 45. lucky stars 9. 10.
