£63m EuroMillions Winner Yet To Come Forward
No one has yet come forward to claim their £63.8m share of the EuroMillions jackpot, a National Lottery spokeswoman said.
A UK ticket holder was one of two jackpot winners in Friday night's draw, the other being with a ticket bought in Belgium.
It was the sixth jackpot win in Britain this year, and the haul puts the lucky person on a par with other multimillion-pound jackpot winners including Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in North Ayrshire, who claimed £161m last July.
Other big winners include an anonymous ticket holder who banked £113,019,926 in October 2010 and Dave Dawes and wife Angela, from Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, who claimed £101,203,600 last October.
The latest mega-pot came about because of a double-rollover.
Last Friday six people won £266,505.80 each after matching five main numbers and one lucky star, but no-one matched all seven to claim the £106m jackpot.
The spokeswoman said: "Lady Luck is clearly shining down on the UK once again with another big EuroMillions win this year - the sixth jackpot win this year.
"We're absolutely delighted that a UK ticket holder has scooped a £63.8m share of this massive jackpot, alongside one ticket holder in Belgium.
"We've got the champagne on ice and look forward to welcoming the ticket holder into the National Lottery millionaires' club."
The exact amount won by the lucky Brit was £63,837,543.60.
what do you think?
If the lucky winner doesn't like loose change, I'll take the extra £837,543.60 off their hands...
It is far too much for a jackpot.they should give more money to 3 balls 4 balls,5 balls,etcetra.but they will not change it because they make much more profit on a rollover with increased ticket sales,because for some strange human behaviour the amount in the jackpot for one week is not enough for some.
Or perhaps ED BALLS.

You could buy Greece with that!
And have money left over too :-)
Yes but why would you want to?
possibly you could get Spain as well on a BGOF deal.
Oh wow, I've had a lottery win. The big problem now is spending the £10 - anyone like to help with my problem ? Only nymphomanic blondes need apply
How can winning GBP63m be on a par with winning GBP 161m? There vare some very empty-headed journalists out there.
I know. You could only buy a few luxury mansions with that, whereas £161m would get you a whole street of them!
sounds good to me, but its not me.boohoo.
It wasn't me...Would it have made me happy - you bet! I could have afforded my son's Uni fees.
I won but just waiting to the right time to claim my prize. Will be remaining private and no begging requests plz as u will be rejected.
