Record EuroMillions jackpot of £184m won by single lucky ticket holder

A French ticket holder has won Friday's record £184 million EuroMillions jackpot with the winning numbers coming out as: 49, 21, 26, 34, 31 and the Lucky Stars 05 and 02

A French ticket-holder has won Friday's record £184 million EuroMillions jackpot, the National Lottery has said.

Tonight's National Lottery EuroMillions winning numbers were: 49, 21, 26, 34, 31, while the Lucky Stars were 05 and 02.

But Brit players were left shaking their heads in disappointment as instead the National Lottery win was claimed by a French-based ticket holder.

The largest EuroMillions jackpot win so far this year in the UK was last April when nine rollovers saw the jackpot go from a starting value of £14m to over £122m before it was won by one anonymous ticket holder

Also in June, £111,540,000 was claimed for another bumper win.

The biggest recent UK winners to go public were Frances and Patrick Connolly, from Northern Ireland, who scooped a £115 million prize in 2019.

Tonight's EuroMillions draw is played in nine European countries, including the UK. EuroMillions says the odds of picking the seven numbers correctly is one in 139,838,160.

Tuesday’s jackpot now sits at an estimated £14 million.

The huge amount went unclaimed after Tuesday's draw and it meant there has been a surge in interest over Friday's lottery.

Camelot's Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at The National Lottery, said beforehand: "It's all to play for on Friday night as the whopping EuroMillions jackpot of an estimated £184 million remains up for grabs.

"EuroMillions has now hit its cap, which means any money that would have gone into the jackpot will now boost prizes in the next winning prize tier.

"If one UK winner banks the lot, they would instantly become the UK's biggest ever National Lottery winner. Players are urged to get their tickets early to be in with a chance of winning this extraordinary prize."
