The National Lottery has enjoyed a record-breaking 2019 with the UK’s biggest ever win and a new millionaire for every day of the year.
An anonymous ticket-holder won £170,221,000 in October – one of seven EuroMillions jackpots taken home by Brits.
Camelot says 2019 may also be a record breaker in terms of the total number of millionaires made.
By December 19, 364 prizes worth more than £1million had been paid out – with eight new claims made over the Christmas period.
