An unnamed British ticket-holder has won the $107m EuroMillions jackpot, a staggering amount that has landed various media to analyze what the money means.
The jackpot winner has now entered exclusive top five on the National Lottery Rich list and has grabbed the place of fourth biggest ever lottery winner.
It can't be said with certainty if the winning ticket belongs to an individual or a syndicate, Metro Reported. But there have been various angles in which the whooping amount of money has been analyzed.
The jackpot winner has now entered to the exclusive top five on the National Lottery Rich list and has grabbed the place of fourth biggest ever lottery winner, The Daily Mail noted.
The money is more than the total wealth possessed by celebrities - musicians Robbie Williams and George Michael, various reports say.
"With the weather set fair for the coming week, this UK winner is set fair for the rest of their lives having just become a multimillionaire," Metro quoted a national Lottery spokesman.
The winning numbers, 6, 24, 25, 27 and 30 with lucky stars 5 and 9 were drawn at 7:45 pm GMT Friday night. Before deciding what to do with the money, the winner has the first daunting test to decide whether or not to go public.
The lottery operators, Camelot, reportedly have counseling service to help deal with the 'stress' of turning into an overnight multi-millionaire.
