The winning numbers of the EuroMillions draw on Friday 12 June were 5, 8, 10, 11 and 37, with Lucky Stars 7 and 9.

The lucky winner has come forward and made himself (or herself?) known to Camelot, the operator of the UK National Lottery. This is the first EuroMillions jackpot win since 26 May.

The next day, the National Lottery tweeted:

Tomorrow, on Monday, the winner will go to his or her local bank branch and take things from there. Just imagine. Wow.

"The sun is out and for someone it is shining very brightly. That ticket-holder has banked a life-changing jackpot of £93,388,943 on EuroMillions. The win ranks sixth biggest on the National Lottery Rich list and is the third EuroMillions jackpot to be won here in the UK this year. We are waiting for the claim and, of course, there are plenty of champagne on ice ready for our last Euro Millions multi-millionaires. In addition to offering the chance to win life-changing prizes, EuroMillions continues to help raise more than £ 34m every week for the National Lottery-funded projects in the UK."

The unfathomably large prize is the result of June 5th's EuroMillions Superdraw event, when Europe's premier lottery upped the ante and introduced a draw for €100 million guaranteed. After two subsequent rollovers, Friday's tally stood at a mouth-watering €129 million (£93.4 million).

Now the wait is over and the EuroMillions UK has dropped back to its regular £10 million jackpot for the mid-week draw.

Colin and Chris Weir from Largs, North Ayrshire, still head the list of British EuroMillions millionaires with their £161 million win, back in July 2011.

We wish you lots of luck this week!
