After multiple rollovers and unprecedented excitement, last Friday
finally saw the EuroMillions jackpot reach a whopping £127.6 million, which
triggered mass hysteria all over Europe and the United Kingdom.
But in the end, the jackpot was won by two lucky players. One
winning ticket which was purchased in Belgium and the other was purchased in the
United Kingdom. As such, each winner walked away with £63.8 million.
The National Lottery is itching to hand the lucky UK EuroMillions
jackpot winner his or her prize, but the problem is that they are lying low for
the moment and the prize hasn't been claimed as of yet.
"They may not have claimed it for a number of reasons," explained a
spokeswoman for the National Lottery. "The winners could be on holiday or part
of a syndicate and the ticket is at work.
Sixth EuroMillions Win This Year
The UK has been extremely lucky this year when it comes to
EuroMillions and Lotto wins. In fact, last Friday's jackpot was the sixth
EuroMillions win for UK players this year alone. The £68 million UK
EuroMillions winner is one of several very happy National Lottery customers.
The most notable UK EuroMillions win, however, took place last
year when Colin and Chris Weir from North Ayrshire won a staggering £161
"Lady Luck is clearly shining down on the UK with another big
EuroMillions win - the sixth this year," noted the National Lottery spokeswoman.
"We've got champagne on ice and look forward to welcoming the ticketholder into
the National Lottery millionaire's club."
