UK ticket holder wins £78m after matching all seven numbers in Friday night's Euromillions draw


 
A UK ticket holder has won nearly £78m after matching all seven numbers in Friday night's Euromillions draw.

 
The lucky entrant was one of just two that matched all the numbers to claim a half-share of the almost £156m rollover jackpot - which had been growing for eight weeks and came close to matching the £170m record set in October.


Friday's other jackpot winner was from Spain.


The numbers drawn were 10, 17, 18, 28, 47 while the Lucky Stars were 3 and 7.


The jackpot had been rolling over since 29 December and the two winners will receive £77,798,898.10 each.


The result ends the prospect of a rollover to Tuesday, which was expected to become a record-breaking jackpot.
