Camelot, the operator of the EuroMillions lottery, has officially acknowledged the receipt of a claim for the £55 million jackpot prize won in Tuesday’s draw.
However, before any prize is awarded, the claim will undergo the standard validation process.
The winning ticket was purchased by a single ticketholder from the UK in the draw held on June 20.
Validation Process and Public Announcement
Following the validation and payment of the ticket, the ticketholder will have the option to decide whether to make their win public or keep it private.
The National Lottery’s senior winners’ advisor, Andy Carter, expressed great excitement upon receiving the claim, referring to it as “absolutely incredible news.”
He emphasized the organization’s commitment to supporting the ticketholder throughout the necessary procedures and ensuring they can begin to enjoy their life-altering victory.

This marks the second major EuroMillions jackpot won in the UK this month, with a previous fortunate ticketholder securing the entire £111.7 million jackpot on June 2.
Notably, the latter amount is the twelfth largest sum ever won in the history of the EuroMillions lottery.
