"If the jackpot is won, it could make the UK's biggest ever victor".

The EuroMillions jackpot prize of €190m has been won by a United Kingdom ticket holder, while one lucky player in Dublin is €500,000 richer after matching all five numbers in the Plus draw.

Tuesday National Lottery EuroMillions winning numbers were 07, 10, 15, 44, and 49, and the winning EuroMillions Lucky Star numbers were 03 and 12.

The lucky ticket-holder has also beaten the previous record set by Colin and Chris Weir who became Britain's richest lottery winners when they claimed £161m in 2011.

The massive prize still pales in comparison to the $1.537bn Mega Millions US lottery jackpot won past year by a lucky punter in SC.

The main jackpot had rolled since Tuesday July 23rd to a maximum five draws at the €190m cap.

Under jackpot cap rules, the top prize can roll over four consecutive times once the cap has been reached, before it must be won in the fifth and final draw, which happened on Tuesday.

If anyone in the United Kingdom wins the jackpot, they will become Britain's biggest ever lottery victor.

"Every EuroMillions ticket sold helps contribute to the more than £30 million raised every week for Good Causes by The National Lottery - funding everything from local community projects to supporting the nation's athletes".
