A Brit has claimed a life-changing EuroMillions jackpot of £59 million – the third won in the UK this year.

They came forward to take home the win from April 20 of £59,041,812.70, with Camelot now assessing the ticket.

It matched all of the winning numbers, which were 5, 17, 28, 41 and 46 with the Lucky Star numbers 10 and 11.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “What amazing news for this lucky ticket-holder who has claimed their amazing EuroMillions jackpot prize.

"We will now focus on supporting the ticket-holder through the process and on helping them to start to enjoy their life-changing win.”

Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news.

Earlier this month, another lucky Brit scooped an £122 million jackpot, making them the recipient of the fifth-biggest National Lottery prize in UK history.

Camelot validated and paid out the prize of £122,550,350.80, the jackpot from the EuroMillions April 2 draw.

Unless the winner signs an agreement for full publicity, no further information can be released about their win.

On New Year’s Day, another Brit banked a £39 million jackpot prize.

The highest ever UK winner claimed a jackpot of £170 million in October 2019, but chose to stay anonymous.

The biggest named British Euromillions winners remain Colin and Chris Weir, who netted a whopping £161,653,00 in 2011.
