UK Winner of £53 Million EuroMillion Lottery Jackpot
The identity or identities of the holder of the winning EuroMillion Lottery ticket has yet to be established. Although it is a single winning ticket of the jackpot, it could be a single winner or a lottery syndicate.
The final verified amount for the lottery jackpot was £53,193,914. That amount does not include the Millionaire Maker part of the game which also creates a new UK Millionaire in each lottery game draw.
EuroMillion Lottery Popularity
The popularity of EuroMillions has grown so much that it now eclipses all other UK and European Lottery games. With lottery prizes of this amount on offer, is it any surprise?
An example of why the lottery game has become so popular is readily available when looking at the prize money paid out to players in the United Kingdom alone.
Just on this particular draw of EuroMillions, close to £4 Million has been paid out to lottery players across the United Kingdom. Factor in an extra £1 Million from Millionaire Maker, which is already close to the standard UK Lotto jackpot amount.
The next EuroMillion Lottery draw will take place on Friday 3rd of March 2015. Due to the massive jackpot win by a UK Lottery player, we will contend with a basic £10 Million lottery jackpot prize.
