A claim has been made for the £33 million EuroMillions jackpot from Friday's draw, organisers have confirmed. Allwyn, the operator of The National Lottery, revealed that a single UK ticket-holder had come forward to claim the full £33,078,306.60 prize.

The lucky winner matched all five main numbers - 11, 13, 29, 31 and 47, as well as the two Lucky Stars of 01 and 11.

The EuroMillions claim will now undergo the standard validation process before any prize is paid out during a meeting with one of The National Lottery's winners' advisers. Once the ticket has been validated and the prize paid, the ticketholder will then decide whether or not they wish to go public with their news.

This comes after another single ticket holder won the £15 million Lotto Must Be Won jackpot on Saturday, which is yet to be claimed. Over the course of the weekend, a total of five millionaires were created across the Lotto and EuroMillions draws, with three additional players each scooping £1 million.

Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at The National Lottery, expressed his delight: "What a wonderful weekend, with a whooping wealth of winners walking away with a win.

"Over two million prizes have been won in just these two draws across two days which is astonishing, and we urge all players to check their tickets so they can see if they are a Lotto or EuroMillions winner."

He concluded by saying: "The big EuroMillions winner will now receive our full support through the validation process and help to enable them to quickly start to enjoy their truly life-changing win."

"And we look forward to meeting the £15m Lotto jackpot winner once they give us a call."

This result marks the second occurrence this year that the EuroMillions jackpot has been clinched by UK participants, following Richard and Debbie Nuttall from Lancashire who secured a £61m windfall on January 30.
