The winning numbers were: 9, 37, 47, 48, and 49.
Tonight’s lucky stars were: 2 and 7.
Players must match all five main numbers and two lucky star numbers to claim the jackpot.
In the Thunderball draw, the winning numbers were: 8, 10, 11, 22, and 37.
The Thunderball was: 10.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot is an estimated whopping £93m, and on top of this we will be making a guaranteed 13 UK millionaires on the EuroMillions Millionaire Maker.
“Friday the 13th will definitely be lucky for some, so we’re urging players to get their tickets early to be in with a chance of winning these fantastic prizes.
“National Lottery players make a huge difference to National Lottery Good Causes across the country raising, on average, around £36m every week.
“Thanks to National Lottery players, over £1.2bn has been distributed to date across the UK to help tackle the impact of coronavirus.”
Whoever eventually claims the top prize could splash the cash on any number of luxury items.
The lucky winner could chose to invest the money in a luxury six-bed flat in central London which came on the market recently with a hefty price tag of £60m.
The penthouse at Park Modern offers stunning views of Hyde Park and covers some 7,000 square feet inside and a wraparound terrace adds another 2,400 square feet outside.
The property also comes with a load of high-end amenities as part of the development including a concierge, a resident’s lounge, valet parking and a “wellbeing floor” with a 25-meter pool, a gym, a spa, a 16-seat cinema and a treatment salon.
Those who’d prefer to splash the cash on a jet-setting lifestyle might prefer to buy their own Gulfstream G650 private jet for £40m.
With a distance range of 7,000 miles they’ll be able to take to the skies anytime – and will never fear sitting next to a screaming baby in a cramped middle seat.
If the winner wants to escape the UK altogether, they might decide to buy Royal Island in the Bahamas.
The stunning isle, which is on the market for £32.3m, has permission for an 18 hole golf course and a major marina.
It already boasts five luxury one-bed beachfront villas with wraparound decks, as well as spa facilities, a restaurant building and a stunning oval-shaped swimming pool.
One of the UK’s biggest prizes – an astonishing £175m – was claimed in December 2020. It’s made the winner richer than Adele.
Another previous UK winner walked off with a cool £170m in 2019.
Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in Scotland, netted a huge £161.6m in July 2011.
Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Haverhill, Suffolk, picked up £148m after they played the draw on August, 10, 2012, while Jane Park became Britain’s youngest lottery winner when she scooped up £1m in 2013.
Sandra Devine, 36, accidentally won £300k. She’d intended to buy her usual £100 National Lottery Scratchcard, but came home with a much bigger prize.
Tonight’s draw comes after one mystery winner lost £1m late last month.
Punters were urged to check their tickets after someone scooped the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker top prize.
The ticket, with winning code VSHS38986, was bought in Lewisham, south east London, before the draw on January 29.
But the winning ticket-holder missed their six-month deadline – which expired at midnight on July 29.
Camelot’s Andy Carter said: “Unfortunately, I can confirm that the ticket-holder did not come forward within the deadline to claim their prize and has now sadly missed out on this substantial amount of money.
“However, the money will now add to the £36M raised on average each and every week for National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.”
£1M PRIZE STILL TO BE CLAIMED
Another player has just under a month to claim their £1m prize money.
The player won on March 12 this year under the UK Millionaire Maker draw.
But almost five months on, they haven’t come forward to claim their winnings.
