A lucky winner has last night scooped the biggest ever National Lottery jackpot by winning a £195million EuroMillions jackpot.
The UK EuroMillions ticket holder has pocketed an eye-watering £195million after the huge cash prize rolled over.
It means they have eclipsed the stunning wealth of Grammy-winner Adele – who is worth around £150million, according to the Sunday Times rich list.
The winning numbers for tonight’s draw were six, 23, 27, 40 and 41, and the lucky star digits were two and 12.
Camelot’s Andy Carter said: “What an amazing night for one UK ticket-holder who has scooped the biggest-ever EuroMillions jackpot of £195M.
“This winner has just become the biggest National Lottery winner of all time, the fourth lucky EuroMillions jackpot winner here this year and the 15th UK winner of over £100M.
“Players are urged to check their tickets and to give us a call if they think they are tonight’s record-breaking lucky winner.
“Thanks to National Lottery players, more than £30M is generated every week for Good Causes across the country.
“This supports everything from local projects making a difference where you live, to our nations’ athletes at the upcoming Commonwealth Games.”
The incredible prize of £195,707,000 — rolled over since 17 June — is 5,009 times the average UK salary of £38,131.
Britain’s previous EuroMillions record holders were Joe and Jess Thwaite.
The Gloucestershire couple were handed a record-breaking £184m jackpot in May.
Despite their astonishing new wealth, one of their first purchases was a second-hand Volvo.
The second-biggest win was awarded to an anonymous ticket-holder who claimed £170m in 2019.
Colin and Chris Weir from Largs, North Ayrshire, won £161m in 2011, while Adrian and Gillian Bayford claimed just over £148m in 2012.
