25 toasting £1m Christmas present
A £1 million Christmas present has been given to 25 lucky Lottery ticket-holders.
National Lottery organisers said December 24 is the luckiest day of the year, with more jackpots of £1 million or more won on the day in the last 16 years than any other time of the year.
To celebrate, it guaranteed to create a further 25 millionaires in the UK in a special festive EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle draw.
The draw will break the existing world record for the most millionaires in a single draw once more than 18 players have come forward and received their giant cheques, according to the National Lottery.
A spokesman said the winners could claim their prizes from the next working day, which is Wednesday.
"It will be amazing to create 25 millionaires and hopefully smash the world record," he said.
More than 2,500 millionaires have been created by the National Lottery in the past 16 years and every week a UK ticket-holder is guaranteed a million-pound prize in the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle.
