26th June 2019 6:53am

A UK lottery player has come forward to claim a £123 million EuroMillions jackpot but has chosen to remain anonymous.

The £123,458,008 prize puts the lucky winner into the Sunday Times Rich List of the 1,000 wealthiest people living in the UK.

The operator of the National Lottery, Camelot has confirmed the prize has been validated and paid to the winner. They went on to say they respect the winner's decision to keep their identity secret, and no more details of the claim will be released.

Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at The National Lottery, said, "What an amazing win — the third biggest ever in the UK. We look forward to supporting this ticket holder as they start to enjoy their life-changing prize."

There have been several big lottery wins in the UK this year including  Patrick and Frances Connolly from Northern Ireland who won the £114.9 million EuroMillions jackpot.

Ade Goodchild won £71 million in March, while another anonymous ticket holder bagged £35.2 million in April.

Euromillions can be played online from outside the participating countries via theLotter. Players select five numbers from a pool of 50. Also, two additional numbers called the “Lucky Stars” which are chosen from a different pool of 11 numbers.

The additional number allows lottery players to win other prizes and is essential to complete the jackpot winning numbers selection.
