On April 2, Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: "What brilliant news, one UK winner has scooped tonight’s massive £122M EuroMillions jackpot and they are now the fifth biggest ever National Lottery winner!
"This is the second UK EuroMillions jackpot winner this year, after a lucky ticket-holder scooped the £39M jackpot in the draw on New Year’s Day.
"Players are being urged to check their tickets and to give us a call to claim this fantastic prize."
The first EuroMillions draw took place on February 7, 2004, by three organisations: France's Française des Jeux, Loterías y Apuestas del Estado in Spain and the Camelot in the UK.
One of the UK’s biggest prizes was up for grabs on December, 4, 2020 with a whopping £175million EuroMillions jackpot, which would make a winner richer than Adele.
They walked off with a cool £170,221,000.
