UK ticket holder scoops £171m EuroMillions jackpot – check your numbers here | UK News


A UK ticket holder has won more than £171m with the EuroMillions jackpot – the third-biggest National Lottery win of all time, Camelot said.

Friday night’s National Lottery EuroMillions winning numbers were: 14, 15, 22, 35, 48.

The Lucky Stars were: 03, 08.

A British Millionaire was created with a winning code: HJML89118.

Only 16 people in the UK have won over £100million, putting the latest winners in an elite group.

Andy Carter of Camelot, Senior Advisor to National Lottery Winners, said: “What an amazing night for a UK ticket holder to win the giant £171million EuroMillions jackpot.

“This winner has just become the third biggest National Lottery winner of all time and the sixth biggest UK EuroMillions jackpot winner this year alone.

“Players are urged to check their tickets and call us if they think they are tonight’s lucky winner.”

But they won’t surpass two previous record holders – winners Joe and Jess Thwaite, a couple from Gloucester, who revealed their identities after winning £184m at EuroMillions in May.

Mr Thwaite, who bought the ticket, said: ‘Generally my luck is pretty terrible, to be honest with you.’

Meanwhile, the UK’s biggest winner of £195m has chosen not to go public, after win in july.

What can you buy with £171m?

The winner is now richer than Adele (who is worth £150million) – and £171million will unsurprisingly go a long way.

They could buy 585 homes, based on the latest UK average. Or if luxury property is more their thing, they can now buy three Mayfair townhouses – complete with gym and library – and still have some spare change.
