On April 20, the £122.5m win was followed by a £59m prize being claimed.
On New Year’s Day, a single UK ticket-holder, who also chose to remain anonymous, banked £39m.
The country’s biggest ever National Lottery win was a £170m jackpot won by an anonymous ticket-holder in the EuroMillions draw on October 8m 2019.
Mr Carter said at the time this months win was announced: “What amazing news, one UK winner has scooped the incredible £111m EuroMillions jackpot in tonight’s special Super Jackpot draw.
