UK Player Wins €58m Euromillions Jackpot

Europe may be in the middle of its most difficult time in decades, but that hasn’t stopped lottery players keeping their dreams of big wins alive.
It is especially good news for UK players as they continue their big money winning streak from 2019. The latest multi-rollover jackpot of more than £58m was won on April 17.

Lucky winner still yet to come forward to claim their huge win

While we know the ticket holder is somewhere in the UK, at the time of writing they have yet to come forward to claim their huge win.
For an individual ticket holder, this will put them in the same tax bracket as singer Harry Styles and footballer Sergio Aguero.
If this latest win is by a syndicate, then there will be a lot of very happy syndicate members who might have to resort to an online party to celebrate!

This win is almost identical to that of a lucky ticket holder from the Match 17 draw. Another lucky UK ticket holder picked up a cheque for £57.8m which went unclaimed for a month.

The winner, from South Ayrshire, eventually came forward to collect their winnings. Perhaps it was the shock of winning that led to the delay, or maybe it was the change in our daily lives that meant checking their numbers just wasn’t a priority.

Although some countries in Europe are slowly relaxing their lockdown laws, many people are still confined to their homes. It is highly likely that whether an individual or a syndicate has won, their ticket would have been bought online.

Pros of technological progress

Technology has enabled people to go about much of their daily lives in safety, while not having to miss out on the opportunities to the things they love, like playing the lottery.
