New Years Treat of Almost £115 Million For Lucky Lottery Winner!

A single ticket holder in the UK has become the fourth biggest EuroMillions winner in UK history, after picking up a frankly insane New Year’s Day win of £114.9 million.Ten other players picked up a million each, ensuring that they will be having a very different start to 2019 to the one they had probably expected!

The lucky winner

At this point, we do not know much about the lucky winner of this utterly life changing jackpot, and we may not, with two players choosing to stay anonymous after picking up £121 million and £77 million jackpots respectively.The lottery player joins big company, falling a fair way of the highest ever UK win, when Chris and Colin Weir from North Ayrshire picked up a staggering £161 million win in July 2011, but that probably won’t upset this new winner!The most recent UK winner before this one came in November of last year when Andrew Clarke, who tended to discard his lottery tickets in his van, discovered he was £76 million better off thanks to a Euromillions jackpot win!

The National Lottery is encouraging all players to check their new year’s day lottery tickets, as there are still prizes to be claimed.The numbers for the EuroMillions draw on New Year’s day were 01, 08, 11, 25, and 28, with the Lucky Star numbers being 04, and 06.There has been an abundance of big wins for UK players on the Euromillions in recent years, and while nobody has got close to the win the Weirs picked up yet, exchange rates actually mean the amounts are quite similar.It might not be long until the UK sees another winner, and maybe even a new record!
