£63.8m lottery win goes unclaimed
NO-ONE has yet come forward to claim their £63.8 million share of the EuroMillions jackpot, a National Lottery spokeswoman said yesterday.
A UK ticketholder was one of two jackpot winners in last night’s draw, with the other being with a ticket bought in Belgium.
The haul puts the lucky winner on a par with other multi-million-pound jackpot winners including Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in North Ayrshire, who won £161 million last July.
Other big winners include a ticketholder who banked £113,019,926 in October 2010 but decided not to go public, and Dave Dawes and wife Angela, from Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, who claimed £101,203,600 last October.
Friday night’s massive pot came about because of a double-rollover.
The week before six people won £266,505.80 each after matching five main numbers and one lucky star, but no-one matched all seven to claim the £106 million jackpot.
The spokeswoman said: “Lady Luck is clearly shining down on the UK once again with another big EuroMillions win this year – the sixth jackpot win this year.
“We’ve got the champagne on ice”
The exact amount won by the UK ticketholder was £63,837,543.60.
