The winning ticket matched all five main numbers, which were 5, 15, 17, 37 and 44, and the two Lucky Stars, 7 and 11.

Lottery players are urged to check their tickets from Friday's draw, which is the fourth EuroMillions jackpot victory in the UK this year.

The biggest prize won in the country in 2018 was £121 million in April, followed by a £77 million jackpot win in February, with both winners remaining anonymous.

Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at the National Lottery, said: "Instead of enjoying their massive £76 million windfall, the lucky ticket-holder has already let a week slip by and may be going about their everyday routine completely unaware of their amazing change of fortune.

"The ticket was bought in-store so you should check the places you usually keep your tickets and make sure you've checked them all in case you're the missing winner.

"We have the Champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win soon."

Camelot said it will release the area in which the ticket was purchased approximately two weeks after the draw, in line with its protocol with prizes of £50,000 or more.
