EuroMillions £87million winning ticket bought in UK

Six ticket-holders, including two from the UK, each won the second prize of £200,047.10 in Friday’s draw.

Camelot said the result was the third EuroMillions jackpot win in the UK this year, with two winners in February – one banking £19.9 million and the other winning £14.5 million.

The big prizes are some way from being the largest for a UK winner. Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs, North Ayrshire, scooped a £161,653,000 EuroMillions jackpot in July 2011.

Here are the biggest jackpot wins for players in the UK.

:: In July 2011, Colin and Chris Weir became Europe’s biggest lottery winners when they scooped more than £161 million.

They made a £1 million donation to the SNP shortly after winning.

:: Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Suffolk, took home more than £148 million in August 2012.

They separated a year later.

:: An unnamed ticket-holder claimed just over £113 million in October 2010, but chose not go public.

:: Neil Trotter, from south London, won nearly £108 million, going from former car mechanic to multimillionaire in March 2014.

:: A pair from Cambridgeshire, Dave and Angela Dawes, won more than £101 million on their third go on the EuroMillions draw in October 2011.

Mr Dawes said he “didn’t sleep a wink” the night of the win, as it was too late to call Camelot after the couple checked their numbers.

:: A UK winner got a £93 million payout in June 2015, but decided to stay anonymous.

:: The latest prize winner has claimed the seventh biggest in UK lottery history, with an £87 million payout.
