Lucky Lottery Winner Scoops £24.5 Million Jackpot In Biggest Win Of The Year

A lucky Lottery ticket-holder has come forward to claim a £24.5 million jackpot in the biggest win of the year. 

The top prize in Wednesday’s draw had to be won and, after no-one matched all six main numbers, the jackpot rolled down. 

One ticket matched five numbers and the bonus ball to win £24,501,283 – the biggest Lotto prize of 2017. 

Camelot, which operates the draw, said on Saturday that a claim has been staked for the huge prize. 

Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, said: “This is a fantastic prize from an amazing Lotto draw and we look forward to helping this ticket-holder settle into their new millionaire lifestyle.

“Overall it’s been an amazing 2017 for National Lottery players, with a record 358 millionaires made.

“I’ll be sure to have a glass of ice-cold Champagne with this ticket-holder to celebrate.”

The money will be paid out at a ticket validation appointment, which must take place when banks are open. 

The ticket-holder will then decide whether to go public with their win. 

The second biggest Lotto prize this year was in June when a player took home £21 million and the third in March, when a ticket-holder won £19.1 million.
