A UK Lottery ticket-holder is sitting on a staggering £57million jackpot prize and may not know they have become a multi-millionaire overnight.
The winning ticket from the EuroMillions jackpot draw on Tuesday, March 17, worth £57,869,670, has yet to be claimed more than a week later.
The ticket was bought at a National Lottery retailer in the UK, as opposed to online, at an undisclosed location.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: ‘One very lucky UK ticket-holder has won a whopping £57million from a ticket bought in store. This is fantastic news in these uncertain times.
‘We’re urging players to check their tickets as soon as they can, and remember, the winning numbers can always be found online and on the National Lottery app.’
According to the Sunday Times Rich List 2019, this jackpot would propel a single ticket-holder into the same league as One Direction’s Harry Styles and Harry Potter star Emma Watson.
Last year, the UK celebrated seven EuroMillions jackpot wins, including one anonymous winner banking £170million in October — the biggest National Lottery win ever.
