A claim has been received for the £54.9 million EuroMillions jackpot won by a single UK ticket-holder earlier this month.

The lucky winner matched all seven numbers to scoop £54,957,242.50 in the draw on Friday June 10.

The claim will now go through a validation process before the prize is paid at an appointment with one of Camelot’s winners’ advisers.

Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the ticket-holder will then decide whether to go public with their news.

Camelot said there would be no information on whether they are an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased, unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.

Camelot’s senior winners’ adviser Andy Carter said: “It’s been an amazing year for National Lottery players and we’re delighted the huge £54m jackpot has been claimed. Our focus is now on supporting the ticket-holder through the process and helping them start to enjoy their truly life-changing win.

“There is another chance for a big UK winner tomorrow night (Tuesday June 21) when there is an estimated £122m EuroMillions jackpot up for grabs.”

This year has already seen an anonymous UK winner claim £109 million from the February 4 draw, followed by the biggest-ever National Lottery win of £184 million by Joe and Jess Thwaite from Cheltenham on May 10.
