Andy Carter at The National Lottery, said: “What an amazing night for UK EuroMillions players as two winners have shared tonight’s life-changing £62M EuroMillions jackpot!

"That makes it five jackpot wins by UK EuroMillions players so far this year!

"Players are urged to check their tickets and to give us a call if they think they are one of tonight’s lucky winners.

“Thanks to National Lottery players, £30M is generated every week for Good Causes across the country.

"This money supports projects across the nation, with a total of more than 670,000 grants – to projects both big and small – having been made across the UK to date.”

It comes after another lucky ticket holder from the UK scooped the EuroMillions jackpot of £111.7million last month.

The jackpot was one of the biggest lottery wins ever, making the winner richer than former One Direction star Harry Styles.

The National Lottery is also urging another winner who has bagged £10,000 a month for 30 years to come forward and claim their prize.

It matched the five main numbers - 10, 32, 36, 39, 43 - as well as the Life Ball number two in the draw which took place on 18 May 2023.

The winner now has until 14 November to claim their prize.
