A ticket-holder in the UK has just bagged a record EuroMillions jackpot of £195 million, making it the largest National Lottery win of all time.

The winning EuroMillions numbers are 06, 23, 27, 40, 41, and the Lucky Stars are 02 and 12, with lottery operator Camelot confirming that one ticket matched all seven numbers to scoop the huge jackpot win of £195,707,000.00 – the biggest win in UK lottery history.

Not only has the ticket-holder secured the biggest win, but they also join an exclusive group of just 15 people in the UK who have ever won more than £100 million.

This lucky winner surpasses the last record-winners, Joe and Jess Thwaite, from Gloucester – who won £184 million on the EuroMillions back in May – and the previous anonymous record-holder of £170 million in October 2019, according to the National Lottery.

Unsurprisingly, this record win also places the ticket-holder on top of the National Lottery’s rich list.

But what exactly can you buy for £195.7 million? And what does this mean for the winner? Well, the National Lottery has attempted to put this astronomical sum into perspective a bit.

The huge jackpot could buy you a total of 696 houses, based on the latest national average.

The massive sum could also get you four private jets, or even buy 23 Pisces-VI Submarines, Southampton Football Club, or a townhouse in London’s Mayfair – which comes complete with a steam-room and plunge pool, cinema room, and fully-equipped chef’s kitchen.

It also means they would be richer than Adele, who is apparently worth £150 million.

“Players are urged to check their tickets and to give us a call if they think they are tonight’s record-breaking lucky winner.”
