A UK ticket-holder has won more than £171m with the EuroMillions jackpot – the third biggest National Lottery win of all time, Camelot has said.
Tonight’s National Lottery EuroMillions winning numbers were: 14, 15, 22, 35, 48.
The Lucky Stars were: 03, 08.
One UK millionaire has been created with a winning code of: HJML89118.
Only 16 people in the UK have won more than £100m, putting the latest winners in an elite group.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: “What an amazing night for one UK ticket-holder who has scooped the giant £171 million EuroMillions jackpot.
“This winner has just become the third biggest National Lottery winner of all time and the sixth UK EuroMillions jackpot winner this year alone.
“Players are urged to check their tickets and to give us a call if they think they are tonight’s lucky winner.”
But they won’t surpass two previous record holders – winners Joe and Jess Thwaite, a couple from Gloucester, who revealed their identities after winning £184m on the EuroMillions back in May.
Mr Thwaite, who bought the ticket, said: “Generally my luck is pretty terrible, to be honest with you.”
Meanwhile, the UK’s biggest winner of £195 million chose not to go public, after winning in July.

How to win the lottery
A knees up? Not for this Lotto winner – she needs new knees
What can you buy with £171 million?
The winner is now richer than Adele (who is worth £150m) – and £171 million will go an unsurprisingly long way.
They could buy 585 houses, based on the latest UK average. Or if luxury property is more their thing, they can now buy three Mayfair townhouses – complete with gym and library – and still have change to spare.
