"This is the third jackpot to be won here in the UK this year.

"We urge all players to check their tickets, to see if they have scooped the £51.8 million jackpot, so they can begin to enjoy their life-changing win as soon as possible."

Four ticket holders matched five numbers and one lucky star in Tuesday's draw, winning £207,523.40 each, while 12 people matched five numbers winning £23,058.10. 

The latest win comes just weeks after a British player was the sole winner of a £24.6 million jackpot.

And in February a ticket holder in Ireland claimed a 66 million euro (£50 million) share of the EuroMillions jackpot.

Last week, a Briton won the biggest Lotto prize ever when they matched all six numbers in the draw to win £35,133,888.
