UK Player Wins £169m EuroMillions Jackpot After Matching All Winning Numbers
A EuroMillions player from the UK has taken out the massive £169 million jackpot after their numbers all matched up.
The company has released a statement saying: "It comes after the jackpot hit its cap for only the fourth time in history and instantly makes the lucky ticket holder one of the biggest EuroMillions winners of all time.
"In an eagerly anticipated draw, there were more than 4.8 million prizes given away in total, but there was only one ticket from all nine participating countries that matched the full winning line to snag the jackpot.
"It was quickly announced that the winning entry was sold in the UK, and the wait will now begin for the player to come forward and claim their money. They will also have to decide whether to go public or stay anonymous.
"The UK has now had 79 jackpot winners since EuroMillions launched in 2004, and the latest success is one of the largest in the country's history."
