UK resident wins £28.5m in EuroMillions

One lucky UK ticket holder has just bagged the top prize in the EuroMillions.

The lottery operator, Camelot, has confirmed that the winner raked in a whopping £28.5 million from last Friday night's draw.

Despite having bagged the hefty sum, the fortunate winner has not yet decided whether or not they will go public and reveal their identity, the BBC reports.

The most significant win from a UK resident in the EuroMillions was Colin and Chris Weir who raked in £161 million in 2011.

There was outcry in Serbia recently when the number for one of the lottery's winning balls was displayed on screen before it was drawn - sparking rumours of rigging.

The organisers denied that the draw had been fixed, instead blaming it on a 'technical mistake'.

In July this year a lottery worker, Eddie Tipton, from Iowa used his inside information to rig the state's lottery in an attempt to cash in on a huge prize.

When Tipton bought the ticket he gave it to a friend. As a member of staff Tipton was not allowed to play and his friend Crawford Shaw refused to give the name of the original buyer when he attempted to claim the prize.

Iowa law requires winners to be identified, so the money was never issued.

Meanwhile, those who invested in the 1 August draw in Perth and Kinross should make sure to double check their tickets as a prize of £191,161 is yet to be claimed.
