£90m EuroMillions lottery win remains unclaimed

This story was published more than 14 years ago.

Twenty four hours after the winning numbers were announced in Britain's biggest yet lottery draw, the two winning ticket holders have yet to come forward to collect over £90 million between them.

Lottery operator Camelot said there had been no valid claimants to the prizes, worth £45.57 million each.

The winners have 180 days following Friday night's EuroMillions draw to collect, or the money will be split between good causes.

"We are looking forward to the winners coming forward," said a Camelot spokesman. "We have no valid claims so far."

The previous record for a UK lottery win was held by Angela Kelly, a Glasgow postal worker, who banked nearly £35.5 million in the same competition in August 2007.

Since the national lottery began 15 years ago, 2,300 millionaires have been created. The three largest lottery prizes won in Britain are all from the EuroMillions game, where the prizes are much bigger than the Lotto because the game covers eight countries other than the UK.

The biggest winner of EuroMillions ever was a 25-year-old woman from Spain who scooped £110 milion in May this year.
