AMID all the gloom, one lucky ticket holder in the UK is celebrating after scooping the £57.9million EuroMillions jackpot.
The mystery winner bagged the life-changing sum after correctly matching all five numbers and the two Lucky Stars in Tuesday’s draw.
The winning numbers were 05, 07, 08, 16 and 20, while the Lucky Stars were 02 and 12.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: ‘It’s a brilliant result for a UK ticket holder who has scooped the massive jackpot. Players are urged to check their tickets to see if their wildest dreams have come true.’
News of the win came just hours after it was announced an elusive ticket holder had come forward to claim a £40million prize — four months after the draw was made.
The ticket was purchased in Dorset before the EuroMillions draw on December 3, 2019.
The jackpot for tomorrow’s EuroMillions draw is an estimated £15million.
