Massive £20million Lotto Jubilee jackpot prize is CLAIMED by single ticket holder | The Sun

ONE lucky Brit has claimed the biggest Lotto jackpot of the year, officials at Camelot confirmed today.

The ticket-holder has won an astonishing £20million pay-out.

It follows a special celebratory Jubilee 'Must Be Won' Lotto draw on Saturday, June 4.

The winning Lotto numbers were 09, 19, 41, 46, 52 and 59, and the bonus number was 24.

However, even if no one had landed all of the numbers, players would have won the prize.

As part of the unusual game's rules, if no individual ticket had matched, there would have been a 'roll-down' – meaning other players could benefit.

For example, those who matched two numbers could have received £5 on top of the usual Lucky Dip.

The £20m prize is the second big Lotto jackpot win in just over a week after another ticket-holder banked £3.8m on May 28.

The new winner will now face a decision about whether to keep their prize to themselves, or instead go public with the news – just like record-breaking EuroMillions winners Joe and Jess Thwaite.

The Gloucestershire couple claimed an astonishing £184m last month.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “It’s been an incredible couple of months for Lotto players with an amazing 30 millionaires made in April and May alone.

"We’re delighted that this £20m Jubilee weekend Lotto jackpot has been claimed.

"Our focus is now on supporting the ticket-holder through the process and helping them start to enjoy their truly life-changing win. 

“Here’s hoping for another Lotto jackpot winner on Saturday night, when there is an estimated £4.1m up for grabs.”

The EuroMillions draw will also take place tonight. A whopping £56m is up for grabs.

It means that if a single ticket-holder claims the win, they'll be richer than three-fifths of One Direction.

Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne all have a reported net worth of between £44m and £53m.

However, the jackpot is just 30 per cent of the amount claimed by Mr and Mrs Thwaite.

Britain's luckiest couple have been eyeing up a £7.25million mansion in the Cotswolds near Sun columnist Jeremy Clarkson’s farm.
