Euromillions winner opts to remain anonymous

By PA Reporter

The UK winner of a £121.3m EuroMillions jackpot has decided to remain anonymous.

Lottery operator Camelot said it had validated and paid out the prize won in Tuesday's draw by a single ticket-holder.

It is the third biggest prize of its kind won in the UK.

In July 2011, Colin and Chris Weir became Europe's biggest lottery winners when they scooped more than £161m and Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Suffolk, took home more than £148m in August 2012.

A Camelot spokesman said: "The £121m winning ticket-holder has opted to remain anonymous.

"Under its licence to operate The National Lottery, Camelot has a duty of care to protect the anonymity of all National Lottery winners.

"Therefore no further details will be released about this ticket-holder's claim."
