Euromillions winner: UK ticket-holder nets £73m jackpot

The prize is the eighth biggest claimed by a UK ticket holder in National Lottery history

A UK ticket-holder has scooped a colossal £73 million jackpot in the Friday Euromillions draw – the eighth biggest UK win in National Lottery history.

The winning numbers were 30, 42, 04, 31 and 38 and the Lucky Star numbers were 11 and 02.

A National Lottery spokesman said: “This Bank Holiday has turned out to be truly memorable for one UK winner; not only will they enjoy the extra day off but they'll now also be banking a multi-million-pound cheque.

"This single UK ticket-holder will enter the exclusive top 10 on The National Lottery rich list - at number eight - and we've got the champagne on ice ready for the lucky winner to claim their prize.

“As well as offering a chance to win life-changing prizes, Euromillions continues to help raise over £33m every week for National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.”

The biggest UK lottery prize was won by Colin and Chris Weir, who matched their numbers to gain over £161 million in 2011.

And the following year Adrian and Gillian Bayford won an equally eye-watering sum of £148 million.

In 2010, a British ticket-holder won £113 million but decided to remain anonymous.
