The winner of the huge £11.5million Euromillions prize has had the staggering amount paid out to them.
Camelot has confirmed they gave away an incredible £111,540,000 EuroMillions jackpot prize to a single UK ticket-holder from the draw on Friday, 4 June 2021.
Camelot's Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said, “We’re delighted that we’ve been able to pay out this amazing EuroMillions jackpot prize – the ninth biggest in National Lottery history – and we hope that the lucky ticket-holder will enjoy their win.
“By buying a ticket for EuroMillions or any National Lottery game, players generated an average of £36m each week for National Lottery-funded projects in 2020/21.
"This money helps support everything from the local charity making a difference where you live through to supporting the nation’s elite athletes.”
This is the fourth EuroMillions jackpot paid out in the UK this year.
Just two months ago one lucky ticket-holder, who chose to remain anonymous, scooped the incredible £122.5m jackpot prize from the draw on 2 April, instantly becoming the fifth biggest National Lottery winner ever.

April proved to be a lucky month for UK EuroMillions players, as the £122.5m win was followed by a £59m win from the draw on 20 April.
At the start of the year – New Year’s Day – a single UK ticket-holder, who also chose to remain anonymous, banked £39m.
The country’s biggest ever National Lottery win was a £170m jackpot won by an anonymous ticket-holder in the EuroMillions draw on 8 October 2019.
