EuroMillions lottery tickets
A UK ticket holder has scooped £63.8m in Friday's EuroMillions lottery draw - the sixth jackpot win in Britain this year, reports Sky News.
The haul puts the lucky person on a par with other multi-million-pound jackpot winners including Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in North Ayrshire, who copped £161m last July.
Other big winners include an anonynmous ticket holder who banked £113,019,926 in October 2010 and Dave Dawes and wife Angela, from Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, who claimed £101,203,600 last October.
The latest mega-pot came about because of a double-rollover.
Last Friday six people won £266,505.80 each after matching five main numbers and one lucky star, but no-one matched all seven to claim the £106m jackpot.
The spokeswoman said: "Lady Luck is clearly shining down on the UK once again with another big EuroMillions win this year - the sixth jackpot win this year.
"We're absolutely delighted that a UK ticket holder has scooped a £63.8m share of this massive jackpot, alongside one ticket holder in Belgium.
"We've got the champagne on ice and look forward to welcoming the ticket holder into the National Lottery millionaires' club."
The exact amount won by the lucky Brit was £63,837,543.60.
