What would you do with a big Lottery win?

What would you do with a big Lottery win?”

The prize had rolled over since the start of September because no one had matched five numbers and two lucky stars in the twice-weekly draws.

Logo for The National Lottery EuroMillions draw, as the biggest Lottery jackpot ever offered in the United Kingdom could be won on Friday.

A lucky ticket holder from Spain has won the record-breaking Euromillions jackpot worth £168 million.

If nobody matches all seven numbers on the fifth, the prize money will roll down to the next tier of winners where there is at least one victor, most likely those who match five numbers and a single lucky star.

The jackpot has now reached its maximum 190 million euro, where it will remain for a further four draws until it must be won on the fifth.

According to The Sunday Times Rich List, a single victor scooping the entire £168 million jackpot would be ranked the joint 671st richest person in the UK.

The Loto player won the tidy sum in the EuroMillions Plus draw.

Excitement was palpable in the United Kingdom, where gamblers' thoughts had doubtless turned to what they might do with the money if they won. Camelot estimates that more than 26,000 tickets could be sold every minute in the hour before the draw closes at 7.30pm.

'We have champagne on ice ready to celebrate, ' he said.

The current United Kingdom record is £162m which was won by Colin and Chris Weir, from North Ayrshire in 2011.

Four Euromillions jackpots have been won by United Kingdom ticket holders this year, the most recent in August when someone pocketed nearly £52m.
