Fourth UK EuroMillions Win of 2017 as Player Lands £51.7 Million Jackpot

The UK is celebrating crowning its fourth EuroMillions jackpot winner of 2017 after a ticket holder won Friday’s top prize of £51.7 million (€57.8 million). The player ended a run of four consecutive rollovers after correctly matching the numbers 5, 9, 29, 31 and 41, along with the Lucky Stars 2 and 4.

Prior to this latest success, players from the UK had already been enjoying something of a hot streak when it comes to playing the popular pan-European game, collecting three of the ten top prizes in 2017. This latest win has only added to the island nation’s glory, with the UK now having produced 67 of the 370 jackpot victors since the lottery’s inception in 2004.

This is the third time the EuroMillions jackpot has been won this month, a fantastic record that started when a family from Ireland landed a €28.9 million jackpot on Friday 7th July. This was soon followed up as a player from Portugal correctly matched all five numbers and both Lucky Stars to scoop a €17 million reward in the very next draw. However, July (30 winners) is still some way off being the most prosperous month for EuroMillions players, with January and September (both 39) still leading the way.

The UK’s success was quickly recognised by Andy Carter, the Senior Winners’ Advisor for the country’s National Lottery: “The UK’s luck is on a roll!” he told the press. Carter also pointed out that this was the UK’s second win in the space of a month, following the lucky experienced by a player who claimed a Superdraw prize worth £87.5 million on Friday 30th June.

The clock has already started ticking for the mystery winner who has 180 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize. “We urge everyone to check their tickets to see if they’ve joined the National Lottery millionaires club,” Carter said.

This Tuesday’s jackpot may have reset, but that doesn’t mean that you should miss out on winning a EuroMillions jackpot worth £15 million (€17 million). You can pick your numbers online or play via any authorised retailer in participating countries. Best of luck!
