UK EuroMillions Player Claims £73 Million Jackpot

The wait is over. The UK EuroMillions player who scooped the £73 million jackpot on Friday, May 2, 2014, has finally come forward to claim their prize. The National Lottery announced the news on Friday and said the winner had decided to remain anonymous.

"This is the country's second massive EuroMillions jackpot win this year," a National Lottery representative said.  "This huge win ranks eighth biggest on the National Lottery Rich list and the ticket-holder can now start to enjoy their life-changing prize."

No player managed to match the five numbers and two lucky stars necessary to win the £20 million EuroMillions jackpot on Friday, May 9, so the Tuesday, May 13, draw has an estimated jackpot of £25 million.
