Lucky UK ticket holder is sole winner of £38m EuroMillions jackpot

A UK ticket holder has scooped Tuesday's £38m EuroMillions jackpot.

The win is just the latest in an incredible lucky streak for UK EuroMillions players.

Camelot is now urging everyone to check their tickets to see who will walk away with the life-changing prize.

The winning numbers are 18, 23, 27, 42 and 44 and the Lucky Star numbers are 2 and 7. One ticket has matched all seven numbers and will win £38,254,645.20.

Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at The National Lottery, said: "One very lucky ticket holder has scooped tonight's £38 million EuroMillions jackpot.

"Players all across the country are now urged to check their tickets to be in with a chance of claiming this amazing prize."

He added: "It's certainly proving to be a lucky year for UK EuroMillions players."

The winning streak for UK players began on 1 January when Patrick and Frances Connolly from Northern Ireland picked up £115m in the New Year's Day EuroMillions jackpot.

Mrs Connolly said the only thing she had ever won before was a "guess the number of sweets in the jar".

In March, Ade Goodchild from Hereford scooped £71m. After revealing his win the 58-year-old said: "I'm not one of these winners who is going to say this win won't change me.

"It bloody well will, or at least I'll give it a damn good go! There'll be no more shift work for me."

However, 2019 has not proved to be lucky for all UK EuroMillions winners. Earlier this month the UK's biggest winners, Colin and Christine Weir, announced they were to divorce.

The couple won £161m in 2011.
