“All National Lottery games can be played in your local store, online or via the National Lottery app.

"Playing online via the website or app means that your ticket is checked, and you get an email notification if you win a prize. You can also scan your retail tickets on the National Lottery app to check if you're a winner.”

This is a record-breaking win for the lucky UK EuroMillions jackpot winner, as this is the biggest UK win of the year so far.

The win places the lucky ticket-holder on the National Lottery Rich List, at number 15 of the biggest wins ever, and is the fifth UK EuroMillions jackpot win of 2020.

Not only that but these wins combined have propelled the UK to the top of the ranks of EuroMillions jackpots won per country, and the UK is now level-pegging with France at 109 jackpots won.
