One lucky UK ticket-holder has won tonight’s £184 million EuroMillions jackpot, becoming the UK’s biggest ever National Lottery winner, Camelot has said
Only 14 players have ever won a jackpot of more than £100 million, with the previous UK record-holder an anonymous winner of £170 million in October 2019.
‘What an amazing night for one UK ticket-holder who has scooped the incredible £184 million EuroMillions jackpot – they have become the UK’s biggest ever National Lottery winner!’ Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery said following the news.
‘Players are urged to check their tickets and give us a call if they think they are tonight’s lucky winner.’
The winner now has 180 days to claim their reward. Once their winning ticket has been validated, the money will be paid out to them. They can decide for themselves whether they want to go public, or remain anonymous.

Tuesday night’s win stopped the jackpot from rolling over to the EuroMillions limit of €230 million, which would have likely been offered on Friday.
The jackpot limit was increased in October last year after someone won record €220 million prize – the highest ever won in the EuroMillions lottery.
The winner was a young woman living in Tahiti, in the Pacific Islands. EuroMillions tickets are sold there on account of it being part of French Polynesia.
