Anonymous person wins Sh14 billion jackpot, identity withheld

The staggering nine-figure EuroMillions prize was won by a single ticket-holder - and they are remaining anonymous.

A single ticket-holder has claimed a £123.4million (Sh14.3 billion) EuroMillions jackpot - the third-biggest lottery prize ever in the UK - and they are remaining anonymous.

UK lottery operator Camelot confirmed on Monday morning it has validated and paid out the staggering nine-figure prize.

It was won in the June 11 draw with the numbers 25, 27, 39, 42 and 46, and the Lucky Stars 11 and 12 - catapulting the ticket-holder into equal 964th place in the Sunday Times Rich List.

Their fortune rivals that of pro golfer Rory McIlroy’s £138m and is richer than that of Welsh football star Gareth Bale, who is worth £94m.

Lottery punters had spent almost two weeks waiting to find out the identity of the person who won the life-changing prize.

Last week Camelot confirmed someone had stepped forward to claim the jackpot.

This is the fourth EuroMillions jackpot win in the UK this year.
