A UK Euromillions ticket-holder has become the country’s third biggest lottery winner of all time, after scooping a jackpot of more than £121m.

Tuesday’s winning numbers were 20, 23, 28, 30, 44, with Lucky Stars 03 and 07.

The biggest lottery prize in UK history is the £161m Euromillions jackpot won by North Ayrshire couple Chris and Colin Weir in 2011.

In August 2012, Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Haverhill, Suffolk, won more than £148m.

Euromillions is played in nine countries – the UK, Austria, Belgium, France, the Irish Republic, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland – with ticket-holders trying to win a share of the same jackpot.

The total Euromillions jackpot on Tuesday was £121,328,187, UK lottery operator Camelot said.

Previous winners of the Euromillions jackpot include a couple from Largs in Ayrshire.

Chris and Colin Weir won the £161m prize, which was one of Europe’s biggest, in July 2011.

Mr Weir described the win as “a dream”.

“When we first realised we had won, it felt like a dream,” he said at the time. “Everything went into slow motion.”

“The next steps are going to be the most difficult… with great wealth comes great responsibility,” added Mr Weir.
