Third Time Lucky: Brit Bags Lottery Jackpot

A UK ticket-holder has come forward to claim a £46.4m EuroMillions lottery jackpot, Camelot has said.

Just one ticket matched all seven numbers to take the jackpot - and subject to validation, the prize could be paid out when banks open on Monday.

The winning numbers were 03 , 07 , 12 , 26 and 34 and the lucky stars were 08 and 10 .

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

If the winnings belong to a single ticket-holder, they will be catapulted into 6th place in the National Lottery rich list - thanks to the massive prize of £46,432,285.20

A National Lottery spokeswoman said: "It's unbelievable that we have had a third huge EuroMillions win here in the UK.

"Only a few weeks ago, Cassey Carrington and Matt Topham won £45m and last month Gareth and Catherine Bull won £40m, so the UK is clearly enjoying a run of amazing luck.

"We have plenty of champagne on ice and look forward to welcoming the lucky ticket-holder into the National Lottery millionaires' club.

"Over 2,800 people have become millionaires since the National Lottery began and, to date, our players have raised an amazing £27bn and counting for National Lottery Good Causes."

Miss Carrington and Mr Topham , both 22 and from Stapleford in Nottingham, won £45,160,170.50 with a lucky dip ticket in the February 7 draw.

They said top of their shopping list was a new computer and washing machine as their old ones had broken within minutes of each other on the morning of the draw.

Husband and wife Gareth and Catherine Bull , from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, won £40,627,241 in the January 20 draw.

Mr Bull, 40, said he bought his lucky dip ticket on a whim when he could not start a building job because of the wet weather.

The couple said they planned to take their two sons to Disneyland, Florida, but the most pressing matter on 35-year-old Mrs Bull's mind was a new landing carpet as she said their current one was "terrible".
