Euromillions Winner
UK Ticketholder Wins £38m In EuroMillions

UPDATE:

The UK winner of last night's massive £38m EuroMillions jackpot has come forward to claim the prize, a Camelot spokesman said. It has not yet been confirmed whether the winner will be named.

The EuroMillions jackpot has been won by a UK ticketholder for the fifth time in a row.

The latest winner scooped £38m in the draw, Camelot said on Friday night.

Just one ticket matched all seven numbers to take the jackpot prize.

The winning numbers were 3, 4, 12, 23 and 50. The Lucky Stars were 4 and 7.

The triple rollover prize is worth £38,034,639.70 to the winner.

Britain's lucky EuroMillions run began on January 20 when builder Gareth Bull and his wife Catherine, from Mansfield in Nottinghamshire, banked nearly £41m.
The county celebrated a second big win on February 7 when young couple Cassey Carrington and Matt Topham scooped over £45m.

Two further UK jackpot wins followed, but both claimants chose to remain anonymous.

More than £46m was won on February 24, while £22.1m was scooped on March 2.

The biggest jackpot was claimed by Colin and Chris Weir from Largs, Ayrshire, who banked £161m last July.
