Briton wins over £171m on EuroMillions lottery

A UK lottery ticket holder has won over £171 million (about $185.7 million) in the EuroMillions lottery. Only 16 UK players have ever won a jackpot worth more than £100m, with the record holder winning £195m in July, according to the Daily Mail.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior adviser at the National Lottery, said: “What an amazing night for one UK ticket holder who won the gigantic £171 million EuroMillions jackpot.” The unnamed winner is the third-highest National Lottery jackpot winner of all time and the sixth UK EuroMillions jackpot winner this year alone, he said.

In the summer, a UK EuroMillions ticket holder won a record £195 million jackpot. The owner of this ticket broke the previous EuroMillions record of £184m, which was won by husband and wife Jo and Jess Thwaite in May. Some of the winners allow the organizers to give their names, while others prefer to keep them secret. Of the dozens of UK National Lottery record holders, only three out of ten winners have previously chosen to reveal their names.
