A ticket-holder has scooped a £93,388,943 EuroMillions jackpot, placing them sixth on the National Lottery rich list.

The prize, which is yet to be claimed, is the biggest win in the UK so far this year.

The ticket matched the five main numbers – 5, 8, 10, 11 and 37 – plus the two Lucky Star numbers – 7 and 9 – picked for last night’s draw.

The top prize had not been won since May 26.

The owner of the ticket has plenty of champagne on ice awaiting them when they come forward, a spokeswoman for Camelot said.

She added: “It’s the fourth – and largest – EuroMillions jackpot win in this country already this year, and the lucky ticket-holder enters the National Lottery rich list in sixth place.”

Top of the list are Colin and Chris Weir from Largs, North Ayrshire, who banked £161 million in July 2011, making them the biggest lottery winners in Europe.

A year after the Weirs struck it lucky, Adrian and Gillian Bayford won £148,656,000. They separated in 2013.

In 2010 a winner who chose to remain anonymous collected £113 million.

Last year Neil Trotter, a former car mechanic from south London, won £107,932,603.

In 2011 Dave and Angela Dawes from Cambridgeshire proved it was third time lucky when they won £101,203,600, having only played EuroMillions twice before.
