Camelot has confirmed that it has had a claim staked for the EuroMillions jackpot prize won by a UK ticket-holder from the draw on Tuesday 24 April 2018. 

A single ticket-holder won the £121,328,187 jackpot.

The ticket-holder will decide whether or not to go public and share their news. There will be no information on whether it is an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased, unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.

Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, "What a win. This ticket-holder has flown into third place on the National Lottery Rich List and can now afford to fly away anywhere they like. We will now look to support the winner as they take the first steps to enjoy this incredible win.

"By buying a ticket for EuroMillions or any other National Lottery game, every player is helping to raise money for Good Causes. Around £30 million is raised every week for projects across the UK, both big and small, including funding everything from local community projects to some of Team GB’s athletes who competed at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.”

This is the second EuroMillions jackpot winner in 2018 following a ticket-holder who won £77m in February.

There was an £87m winner in June 2017, and in November The Catering Girls syndicate from Wales won £25m. The biggest ever winners in the UK are Colin and Chris Weir from Largs, who won £161m in July 2011.
