Lottery millionaires come forward

Nine ticketholders have now come forward after 25 prizes of £1 million were won on Friday night.

The Christmas Eve EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle will break the existing world record for the most millionaires in a single draw once more than 18 players have come forward, according to the National Lottery.

In addition to the EuroMillions raffle, the Lotto rollover draw yesterday saw two ticketholders bank £3,581,481 each. Both of these have come forward to claim their prizes.

A National Lottery spokesman said: "The nine EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle winners and two new Lotto multi-millionaires have had a stunning Christmas, with a giant cheque being delivered down the chimney.

"We urge all other EuroMillions players to check their tickets as there are further £1 million prizes to be claimed.

"Anyone who believes they have a winning ticket should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.

"This special draw has helped generate even more money for good causes, adding to the £25 billion raised since 1994."

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.
