A UK resident has won the entire £105m Euromillions jackpot.
While transferring the money from the EU to the UK the staff at Euromillions applied the Brexit exchange rate bringing the total to £28 and a Toblerone.
The winning numbers selected were 8, 10, 15, 30 and 42.
These numbers were picked and read out, which differs from the system in the UKmillions lottery, where fake numbers are painted on the side of a big bus and never discussed again.
The Lucky Star numbers picked were 4 and 6.
According to the UK winner the 4 stands for the 4th July or Independence Day. The winner commented “My win means take back control of the Euromillions. Liberals are fighting to rename the jackpot the jack and jill pot for equality. This will absolutely not happen if I have anything to do with it. I hate equality. And bendy bananas.”
It is the sixth EuroMillions jackpot won by a UK ticket-holder this year.
The other five winners received a square of milka and a slap from Jean-Claude Juncker, so this is a real step up.
The jackpot coincides with the 25th anniversary of the first National Lottery draw.
It also coincides with the start of the Christmas shopping season, so this winner has saved an estimated extra £2.25 on the Toblerone they would’ve bought anyway.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, urged players to check their tickets to “see if they have won big”.
“that way” he continues, “you can have the thrill of thinking you’ve won millions and then the better thrill of knowing you’re leaving the EU with at least 10 British Pounds.”
Another player also became a millionaire by matching the “Millionaire Maker” code ZMSF62402.
