A resident of the UK won the EuroMillions lottery for £57 million (about $70 million). This is reported on the website of the National lottery of the United Kingdom.

The winner was able to guess five main numbers (05, 07, 08, 16 and 20) and two additional numbers (02 and 12).

“This is a brilliant result for the British lottery ticket holder, who received a huge jackpot of £57 million today,” lottery spokesman Andy Carter said in a conversation with the Sun newspaper.

He also recommended that all ticket holders check them for “big winnings.” A representative of the lottery shared that over the past 25 years, those who won large sums have made a huge contribution to good causes and donated to charity.

In the summer of 2019, another UK resident won the EuroMillions lottery jackpot of £123 million (about $156 million) — the third largest prize in the history of the United Kingdom.
