The National Lottery urged all players of the EuroMillions lottery to check their tickets online via their website to see if they had won.
The EuroMillions lottery draw can be played every Tuesday and Friday across nine countries in Europe. The minimum guaranteed jackpot for every draw is about €17 million.
The prize can continue to roll over to reach €240 million, after which it is divided across the different prize tiers.
Of all the money that is spent on tickets, the National Lottery uses half of it for the prize fund, 12% goes to the UK government, and 28% is used for various good causes, 5% to the Camelot Group that operates the lottery and 5% to the retailers.
A number of good causes have received funding this way, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic when times were very tough.
