A lucky punter is sitting on a jaw-dropping EuroMillions jackpot prize worth £123.5 MILLION, lottery bosses have revealed.
Whoever won the jackpot in last Tuesday’s EuroMillions draw has not called to claim the prize and may not have even realised they’re a multi-millionaire yet.
The search is on to find the owner of the winning ticket, who matched all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars in the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday June 11.
The winning EuroMillions numbers on that date were 25, 27, 39, 42 and 46, with the Lucky Stars 11 and 12.
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “It seems this massive winner might not even be aware that they are one of the biggest National Lottery winners ever.
"A week has slipped by and winners may have been going about their everyday routine completely unaware of this amazing change of fortune.
"The ticket was bought in-store so players should check the places they usually keep their tickets and make sure they’ve checked them all.
"We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win soon."
Players are being urged to check, double-check and triple-check their tickets so they can get their hands on the giant cheque as soon as possible.
Camelot is waiting to hear from the ticket holder to start the process of claiming their life-changing prize.
The prize has been won by a single ticket-holder but there is no information on whether this is an individual or a syndicate win.
The £123,458,008 jackpot places the ticket-holder third in The National Lottery Rich List.
And a single ticket-holder would instantly leap into equal 964th place in The Sunday Times Rich List.
They would have a fortune to rival golfer Rory McIlroy’s £138m and would be richer than Welsh football star Gareth Bale who is worth £94m.
Mr Carter added: “Our player services team are on standby waiting to meet the lucky winner or winners.
"They have great expertise in helping winners embrace life-changing wins and making sure that they are able to start to enjoy their new found wealth as quickly as possible.
"They will be on hand every step of the way to guide the ticket-holder through the winning experience.”
As with all major prizes of £50,000 and above won in a shop – as opposed to online – approximately two weeks after the draw, if no valid claim has been received, the area in which the ticket was purchased is released.
This area is provided by Camelot’s security team in line with its licence obligations and is designed to encourage tickets to be checked but also to enable the ticket-holder to remain anonymous if they wish.
This is the fourth EuroMillions jackpot win in the UK this year.
Patrick and Frances Connolly from Northern Ireland won the £114.9m EuroMillions jackpot in the draw on New Year’s Day, Ade Goodchild banked £71m in March and an anonymous ticket-holder bagged £35.2m in April.
