Brit scoops £59 MILLION EuroMillions jackpot in second win for the UK in a month
A LUCKY Brit scooped a £59MILLION jackpot with EuroMillions last night – in the second big win for the UK in a month.
April has been a great month for lottery players from Britain.
On April 2, a £122m jackpot was paid out to one UK player – making them the fifth biggest ever National Lottery winner and putting them squarely on the Times Rich List.
And now a second Brit has claimed another huge prize using the number 05, 17, 28, 41 and 46, along with lucky stars 10 and 11.
Camelot's Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at the National Lottery, said: "What amazing news.
"One UK winner has scooped tonight's fabulous £59m EuroMillions jackpot.
"This is the second UK EuroMillions jackpot winner in April after a lucky ticket-holder scooped the gigantic £122m jackpot on April 2."
Lottery winners can sign an agreement for full publicity if they want to release information about them.
However, the £122m jackpot winner has chosen to remain anonymous.
And other players – including the biggest-ever winner, who scooped £170,221,000 in October 2019 – have also opted to keep their names out of the press.
Players who scooped £123m and £121m respectively also chose not to reveal their details.
Among those who did choose to be named are Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in Scotland.
The couple netted a huge £161,653,000 on July 12, 2011.
Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Haverhill, Suffolk, picked up £148,656,000 after they played the draw on August, 10, 2012.
Jane Park became Britain's youngest lottery winner when she scooped up £1 million in 2013.
The odds of winning any EuroMillions prize are 1 in 13.
