£46m EuroMillions jackpot claimed
Monday 27 February 2012
A lottery winner has claimed the £46.4 million EuroMillions jackpot but chosen to remain anonymous, Camelot said today.
Just one ticket matched all seven numbers on Friday to take the prize of £46,432,285.20.
The ticket-holder claims sixth place in the National Lottery Rich List.
The winning numbers were 03, 07, 12, 26 and 34 and the lucky stars were 08 and 10.
The cash was paid out just weeks after Cassey Carrington and Matt Topham, from Stapleford, Nottingham, landed £45 million and Gareth and Catherine Bull, from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, scooped £40 million.
A National Lottery spokesman said: "This fantastic win has maintained the UK's amazing run of luck in banking big EuroMillions jackpots."
More than 2,800 people have become millionaires since the National Lottery began.
The biggest winners to date are Scottish couple Colin and Chris Weir who pocketed £161,653,000 last July.
The prize catapulted them into the Sunday Times Rich List above Beatle Ringo Starr and Sir Tom Jones.
More recently, Miss Carrington and Mr Topham, both 22, won £45,160,170.50 with a lucky dip ticket in the February 7 draw.
Mr Bull, 40, and his wife, 35, won £40,627,241 in the January 20 draw.
The anonymous ticket-holder takes their place behind Nigel Page from Cirencester, who won £56 million in February 2010 and just ahead of Les and Sam Scadding from South Wales and the Lucky Seven syndicate from Liverpool, who both won £45.5 million in November 2009.
