A Euromillions jackpot winner has come forward to claim their prize worth £76million.
Camelot, operator of The National Lottery, has today confirmed that it has had a claim staked for the life changing prize.
It has been won by a UK ticket-holder who bought their ticket in the Boston and Skegness area for the draw on Friday, November 2.
The jackpot prize will be paid out at the ticket validation appointment.
The ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news.
There will be no information on whether it is an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: "What a win for one lucky UK ticket-holder.
"This is the twelfth biggest winner ever in the UK and we very much look forward to toasting their win. Just imagine the Christmas this lucky ticket-holder is now able to look forward to.
"By buying a ticket for EuroMillions or any other National Lottery game, every player is helping to raise money for Good Causes. Around £30million is raised every week for projects across the UK, both big and small.”
This year has already seen three other massive UK EuroMillions jackpot winners.
On April 24 a lucky ticket-holder, who chose to remain anonymous, banked a £121m jackpot.
Meanwhile the draw on February 23 produced another anonymous UK winner who took home just over £77m.
This year’s other huge EuroMillions jackpot winners were Fred and Lesley Higgins from Aberdeenshire who won the £57m jackpot in the draw on July 10.
The biggest ever winners in the UK are Colin and Chris Weir from Largs who won £161m in July 2011.
