July really ended on a high note for one fortunate lotto enthusiast from the UK, who became £51.700.000 richer thanks to Euromillions. It’s been over a week since then, and the winner finally came forward to collect the prize, but no information is known about their identity at this point.

The fortunate punter correctly matched the numbers 5, 9, 29, 31 and 41, along with the Lucky Stars 2 and 4 in the Euromillions draw that took place on July 28th. They ended up pocketing £51.700.000, and about a week after the draw took place they officially came forward to claim this incredible amount of money.
According to Camelot, the jackpot will be paid out as soon as the ticket has been validated – that’s also when the winner can decide if they want to go public or not, since they’re allowed to stay anonymous after collecting the prize. No details were shared about the identity of the lucky punter, so it’s not known where the ticket was purchased or if it belongs to a syndicate or an individual player. Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, shared his excitement about the fact the search for the fortunate British player is over.
“We’re delighted the ticket holder has come forward to claim their prize. This year is proving very lucky for UK players,” said Mr. Carter.
Euromillions has been rolling over ever since, and the latest draw that failed to produce a jackpot winner took place on August 4th. The line consisted of the numbers 29, 30, 36, 40 and 41, plus the Lucky Stars 2 and 9. Four players from Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and Ireland missed it by one of the Lucky Stars to net around £232.000 each. The draw on Friday night also produced five winners of a Match 5 prize worth £43.000 – three of them are residents of the UK, while the other two come from Spain and Austria. The next Euromillions draw is coming up tonight and it will offer a £32.000.000 windfall.
