A UK Lottery ticket-holder is sitting on a staggering £57 million jackpot prize and may not know they have become a multi-millionaire overnight.
The winning ticket from the EuroMillions jackpot draw on Tuesday March 17, worth £57,869,670, has yet to be claimed more than a week later.
The ticket was bought at a National Lottery retailer in the UK – as opposed to online – at an undisclosed location.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: “One very lucky UK ticket-holder has won a whopping £57 million from a ticket bought in store.

“This is fantastic news in these uncertain times.
“We’re urging players to check their tickets as soon as they can and remember, the winning numbers can always be found online and on the National Lottery app.”
According to the Sunday Times Rich List 2019, this jackpot would propel a single ticket-holder into the same league as One Direction’s Harry Styles and Harry Potter star Emma Watson.
Last year, the UK celebrated seven EuroMillions jackpot wins, including one anonymous winner banking £170 million in October which set the record for the biggest National Lottery win.
The National Lottery EuroMillions winning numbers on March 17 were 05, 07, 08, 16 and 20 – while the Lucky Stars were 02 and 12.
