Written by on 2 January 2021
One lucky UK ticket-holder has started the new year by winning Friday night’s entire GBP39m EuroMillions jackpot.
The winning numbers were 16, 28, 32, 44 and 48 with the lucky stars of 1 and 9.
Ten more players secured GBP1m each in the special New Year’s Day Millionaire Maker event and are being urged to check their tickets.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, said: “What an amazing start to 2021 for UK EuroMillions players.
“One UK winner has scooped tonight’s entire GBP39m EuroMillions jackpot and 10 lucky players have walked away with GBP1m each in the special UK Millionaire Maker New Year’s Day event.
“Players are being urged to check their tickets online via the National Lottery app or website, or in their local shop, and to give us a call to claim the first big prizes of 2021.”
No one won the EuroMillions Hotpicks jackpot which uses the same numbers as the main draw but one winner scooped the Thunderball top prize of GBP500,000.
The Thunderball numbers were 13, 17, 30, 34, 35 and the Thunderball was 1.
Tuesday’s EuroMillions jackpot is an estimated GBP15m.
