THE lucky ticket holder who won Friday night’s recordbreaking £168million Euromillions jackpot has claimed their prize on the holiday island of Gran Canaria.
The prize had been growing after no-one matched five numbers and two Lucky Stars in the twice-weekly draws since the start of September.
The jackpot had reached its maximum, and Camelot estimated that more than 26,000 tickets could have been sold for the draw. The winning numbers of 01, 09, 15, 19 and 25 and Lucky Star numbers 01 and 07 were matched by a ticket sold in Spain. Four UK ticket holders matched five numbers and one Lucky Star to win £900,571 each.
UK players are urged to check their tickets quickly to see if they are among the winners.
