    Euromillions result: One UK ticket holder scoops record breaking £184m jackpot

    One UK ticket holder has scooped a record-breaking £184m Euromillions jackpot.

    The winning EuroMillions numbers were 3, 25, 27, 28 and 29 – plus the Lucky Star numbers 4 and 9.
    One ticket matched all seven numbers to win £184,262,899.10.

    Camelot's Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at The National Lottery, said, "What an amazing night for one UK ticket-holder who has scooped the incredible £184 million EuroMillions jackpot – they have become the UK's biggest ever National Lottery winner.

    "Players are urged to check their tickets and give us a call if they think they are tonight's lucky winner."

    The £184million mega-prize could make the lucky winner richer than a number of famous faces, including the Prince of…Darkness.

    The win dwarfs the estimated £150m Black Sabbath rocker Ozzy Osbourne and wife Sharon are worth.

    An anonymous winner currently holds the title after scooping a massive £170m in October 2019.

    Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “This massive amount could not only change a winners’ life, but would make a huge difference to their friends, family and community.”

    If no-one had matched the five numbers and two lucky stars tonight, the money would have rolled over to almost £197m on Friday.

    Mr Carter added earlier today: “My team and I have our fingers crossed for all UK players and are on standby.

    “Make sure you grab your ticket early.”

    Some UK winners have turned their plans into a reality after scooping the top prize in previous draws.

    Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in Ayrshire, Scotland, took home the 2011 jackpot worth £161,653,000.

    The couple worked as a TV cameraman and psychiatric nurse before becoming the biggest lottery winners in Europe.

    In 2012, Adrian and Gillian Bayford hit the August jackpot bagging themselves £148,656,000.

    The couple said they planned to splash out on luxury cars and holidays but sadly separated 15 months later.

    Adrian had joked to Gillian that he had not bought a ticket before realising that he had won.

    Frances and Patrick Connolly scooped £114,969,775 after hitting the jackpot on New Year's Day in 2019.

    The pair, from County Armagh in Northern Ireland, won after buying a Lucky Dip ticket and celebrated their astonishing win with a hug and a cuppa.

    Anonymous ticket holders won jackpots of around £121m and £123m in April 2018 and 2021 respectively.

    Further anonymous winners include prizes of around £84m and £113m in 2010, £46m in 2012, £81m in 2013, and £73m in 2014.

    Later wins include £93m in 2015, £52m in 2016, £52m and £88m in 2017, £76m and £78m in 2018, £71m in 2019, £79m in 2020, and £59m and £112m in 2021.

    Another winner, who became similarly stinking rich on the Euromillions, landed in hot water with her husband for obliterating her charity donations budget.

    Frances Connolly, 55, from Hartlepool in Co Durham, won £115million but has already given away half on charitable causes.

    In 2022 alone, she donated £11million to help others – roughly what she agreed to donate over 10 years.

    The ex-teacher told The Mirror last month: “I get to change people’s lives. I’m addicted to it.”

    She said: “I get to change people’s lives every day if I want to. Helping other people and doing something to help other people will lift you.

    “If you can give to others, whether it’s time or money, it’s really important, it gives you a buzz. It’s addictive. I’m addicted to it now.”

    According to Camelot, cash raised from UK tickets also goes to help "supporting the most vulnerable in society, and helping to make inspirational Olympic and Paralympic champions".

    To date over £45billion has been raised by Brit players – which feeds into funding "660,000 projects" from the arts and charities, to heritage and health.

    Their site reads: "That’s the equivalent of over 235 lottery grants in every UK postcode district, with every project making a real difference to the lives of people and communities across the UK – especially as 70% of grants are for £10,000 or less."
