Lottery Results in UK National and euromillions lotto
Euromillions £148 Million Friday 10th August 2012 claimed
A lucky United Kingdom ticket-holder managed to match all of last nights 5 main euromillions numbers and the two luky stars to claim the £148,000,000 Euromillions lottery prize rollover jackpot.
The £148 million jackpot prize had rolled over so many times that it was at the point where it had to be won. Luckily for the mystery ticket holder, they managed to match all the numbers to win the jackpot sharing it with no one.
The operators of the National lottery, Camelot have today confirmed a United Kingdom based lottery ticket holder, has come forward to claim yesterday’s £148m Euromillions rollover lotto jackpot.
As long as the ticket is validated then the lucky lottery winner could have the money in his/her back account first thing on Monday. And of all a sudden they will be very very rich, and earning more in interest in a week, than I earn in wages for a year! Jammy !!
At this moment in time, it is not known if the second biggestever euromillions lottery winners have decided to go public or not. Over the next few days, Camelot will be releasing more information on the progression of this massive lottery win.
If I was the winner, I would stay secret squirrel and try to keep my lottery win a secret. Imagine how many people would suddenly start begging for money if they knew you had £146,000,000 in the bank. As of yet it is also not known where the winning lottery ticket has been bought from.
As I mentioned above, this is the second ever biggest euromillions lottery win. The biggest being Colin and Chris Weir from Ayrshire, who scooped £161m in July 2011.
Camelot are also still to confirm if the prize money which stands at £148,656,000 was won by a single person, or as part of a lottery syndicate. Either way, I bet they are all smiling at the moment.
The winning eurolottery numbers were 11,17,21,48,50 and the two lucky stars were 9 and 10. The millionaire raffle was JDW016965.
A Camelot spokes person has said:
“We are looking forward to welcoming the ticket-holder into our millionaires club, joining the 2,900 millionaires created by the National Lottery to date”
“It’s amazing to have another big EuroMillions win in the UK – the seventh jackpot to be won here this year,”
“In addition to the fantastic run of luck with big winners in 2012, EuroMillions players are also making a difference to communities across the UK, contributing to the £30 million raised every week for National Lottery Good Causes.”
“To date, our players have raised an amazing £28bn and counting for National Lottery Good Causes.”
