The British Wins $224 Million in EuroMillions Jackpot

May 17, 2022 by

A EuroMillions player was lucky enough to get all seven numbers right in the biggest UK National Lottery. The lottery’s current operator, Camelot UK Lotteries Limited, will examine the claim and issue the reward to the winner.

“Dreams Come True” – Money Winner

Last week, the fortunate ticket holder filed a claim for the prize, which is worth a stunning $224 million. The winner accurately predicted all of the numbers in the lottery draw, which were 3, 25, 27, 28, and 29. Numbers 4 and 9 were Lucky Star numbers.

When you walk away with a life-changing sum, it is predictable that the winner has chosen to remain anonymous for the time being. The National Lottery operator states it will not reveal the winner’s identity or where the winning ticket was bought. The fortunate player, on the other hand, is free to expose their identity if they want so.

So far, such a reward won after buying a single ticket, has never been surpassed in the history of the National Lottery. Another unknown player, set for life, held the previous record when they won $207 million in October 2019. Furthermore, this is not the first EuroMillions jackpot winner in 2022. We haven’t yet reached the halfway mark of the year, and the lottery has already impacted the lives of several individuals.

The first reward was picked on February 4 and claimed by an unknown ticket purchaser a few days later. Camelot has verified that a £109.9 million EuroMillions jackpot claimed by a single UK ticket holder has been validated and paid out. To win the top prize, a single UK player had to match all five EuroMillions numbers as well as the two Lucky Star numbers. Unless the ticket holder chooses to go public, there will be no information on the winner, though.

Assessing the Claim Prior to Paying Out the Winnings

The claim will now be validated before the reward is handed out in a meeting with one of Camelot’s winners’ advisors. The ticket holder will select whether or not to go public with their news once the ticket has been verified and paid.

Andy Carter, Camelot’s senior winners’ advisor at the National Lottery, said: ‘We’re thrilled this incredible reward has finally been claimed. It was an incredible EuroMillions jackpot victory that catapulted the happy winner into the top ten list of all-time National Lottery winners.’

Camelot's emphasis now, according to Carter, is on guiding the ticket holder through the process and assisting them in beginning to enjoy their genuinely life-changing prize. After receiving their reward, the winner has the option of going public and announcing their success to the whole of Great Britain.
