Brit could scoop £180 million in tonight’s Euromillions and get on rich list

A lucky Brit could bag £180 million in tonight’s Euromillions rollover jackpot – smashing the previous UK record.

In 2019, an anonymous punter scooped £170 million in the UK.

However, tonight’s draw would eclipse that fortune and make the winner the 685th richest person in the UK, the Daily Mirror reports.

They would overtake celebs like Adele, Tom Jones and Eric Clapton, according to The Sunday Times’ Rich List.

To scoop the jackpot, the winner will need to get the five main numbers plus two lucky stars.

The runner-up – who will take home £130,554 – will have to get the five numbers and one lucky star.

Anyone in third place can expect to receive £13,561 if they get all five main numbers.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor for Camelot, said: “A single ticket-holder would become the 11th Brit to bank over £100m and our biggest ever winner.

“This is an incredible amount of money and if a lucky winner banks the lot, they are going to need some support.

"My team and I are on standby for our big winners as they start their life-changing journey and will be there every step of the way.”

Earlier this week, a teenager revealed she was just one digit away a staggering seven times from banking £178 million in the EuroMillions jackpot.

Tayla Octave, 19, was stunned by her rotten luck when she checked her lucky dip ticket for last Friday's mega draw on February 19.

Each of the marketing apprentice's numbers were either one too big or small than the winning sequence – including the Lucky Stars.

Instead of packing in her job and buying her family a home with the £178 million, Tayla was left heartbroken.

The winning row of numbers were 4, 12, 25, 46, 48 – 07 and 12 but the teenager from south east London had 5, 13, 24, 45, 49 – 06 and 11,the Sunreported.

She told the paper: "I'm just gutted. It's a long shot to win the lottery anyway but to be so close is heartbreaking.

"At first I just saw I hadn't won anything but then I went through and compared them side by side and that's when I realised that every single number I had was just one away from the winning ones."
