Tuesday’s EuroMillions draw winner surpassed the previous record-holder, who won £140 Million (over R2,3 Billion) in October, 2019.

A UK based individual has won the £184 Million (over R3,1 Billion) EuroMillions payout which resulted in them becoming the UK’s biggest lottery winner. However, no one has come forward to claim the prize.

The winning EuroMillions numbers were 3, 25, 27, 28 and 29, plus the Lucky Star numbers 4 and 9, thus only one ticket matched all seven numbers to win a total of £184 Million (over R3,1 Billion) of the prize money. The win instantly placed the winner at the top of The National Lottery’s top payout list.

Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Adviser at The National Lottery, said: “What an amazing night for one UK ticketholder who has scooped the incredible £184m (over R3,1 Billion) EuroMillions jackpot. They have become the UK’s biggest ever national lottery winner.” He urges players to check their tickets and to step forward if they believe they’re the lucky winner.

According to The National Lottery, only 14 players have ever won a payout of over £100 Million (over R1,1 Billion), with the last winners being a couple, Frances and Patrick Connolly. It is said that the couple has given away half of their winnings to charity.

Frances states that she gets a ‘buzz’ from being able to change people’s lives for the better, adding: “I’m addicted to it now.”
