British ticket-holder claims £87m EuroMillions jackpot

Friday’s win was the seventh biggest in the United Kingdom.

A British ticket-holder has come forward to claim Friday’s £87 million EuroMillions jackpot.

The lucky winner will take home £87,570,000 – the seventh biggest jackpot win in the UK – if the claim is validated, Camelot said.

The prize could be paid when the banks are open and then the ticket-holder can decide whether to go public.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at Camelot, said: “It’s great that the ticket-holder has come forward to claim their amazing prize.

“We look forward to supporting the seventh biggest lottery winner in the UK as they celebrate their life-changing win.”

Six ticket-holders, including two from the UK, each won the second prize of £200,047.10 in Friday’s draw.

Camelot said the result was the third EuroMillions jackpot win in the UK this year, with two winners in February – one banking £19.9 million and the other winning £14.5 million.

The big prizes are some way from being the largest for a UK winner.
